Challenge #5 Heat Embossing

Welcome to our  NEW blog.  
We recognise, whilst there are many challenge blogs for all
forms of papercrafts and card making, so why a new one ? 
We hope to reach newbies, to provide  new challenges where you can learn
 new techniques and new skills. 
Many seasoned challengers may also enjoy joining in our
challenges to re-awaken long lost skills and techniques., or
just to join in for the fun of it. 


What would you like to see in future challenges?
We would love to know, please add your requests in the Comments.
Thank you, be patient with us, 

Thank you to those who ventured along, by entering
our last challenge  - #4 Fold Back Card
Sadly not a popular choice for  this style of card.
We do need to have 5 or more entrants to be able to choose 
3 winners, so Anesha has chosen one winner for this challenge. 

Special Mention
I love the humour in the card, the sentiment must be apt for many.

  6. I have set up my blog but as yet haven't learnt to join in a blog hop so am a real beginner at hopping. I have tried before and people say Oh its easy you just link up yeah but I don't know how to do that I can read the instructions but putting them in to actual practice is the point I get stuck. I hope to get a hang of it and join in.
