Happy Wednesday! A funny thing happened on the way to my craft room... my brain went on vacation! Yep, from the time I left the computer to check on this week's La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge, to the time I got to my craft room (a mere one room over), I completely forgot what the challenge was! Even worse, I didn't even realize I forgot what the challenge was! No indeed! I just sat down and started making a card.

Okay, so in my defense I was watching TV and texting with a friend, but I do that all the time. So I guess it's official... I am no longer able to multi-task!

The challenge is to use dry or heat embossing on your card. Thanks to Maureen, our good-spirited challenge hostess, she pointed out that there IS dry embossing left by the Nestie I used to cut the image... so we're counting it! LOL!!!

I'm actually loving the way this card turned out. I played with Card Patterns Sketch 68. The adorable image is Bubble Lala, one of the newest releases. The DP is from the Lemonade collection by Basic Grey. The chipboard piece is by Prima. The velvet ribbon is from Taylored Expressions.

Since our challenge hostess Maureen used Beach Lala on her card, she's 20% off until next Tuesday!

So grab your embossing tools and come play in our challenge for a chance to win a $10 voucher to spend on rubber stamps in the La-La Land Crafts store or a Top 3 badge! Details are on the La-La Land Crafts blog, as are the wonderful cards created by the rest of the Design Team!

Have a Lala lovely day!

A long soak in the tub is a real event for me - big cold drink, music, a good book, heaven! So I loved this image, and your scantily embossed card really appeals, lovely job! ;-)
