Top 3 at Practical Scrappers!

Yep you heard me right!  I made the Top 3 at Practical Scrappers for their card contest!  Now, there is no more voting........the rest is up to the Practical Scrappers Team to choose the winner!  So I wanted to take this time and say THANK YOU for all the time you all put into voting each week for me.  I wouldn't have made it this far if it weren't for all of my blog friends (and family).  I am forever grateful!

Onto my card for the last challenge they issued:  Use your favorite manufacturer, favorite tool, and favorite technique.  My card is quite different than my other submissions to the contest but I knew exactly what technique I wanted to do.  One I love........Embossing and using Distress Inks.

My favorite manufacturer:  Papertrey Ink
My favorite tool:  Sewing Machine
My favorite technique:  Embossing with Distress Inks



Have a great Sunday..........I have lots of crafty things to work on!  Stay tuned for the Lil' Inker Designs Release that starts tomorrow!  Since this has LOTS of texture, I'm entering this into the Lily Pad Cards Simon Says Stamp TEXTURE Challenge!
