The Paper Shelter Challenge-Embossing of Any Kind!






Good morning everyone! I hope this day brings you joy and happiness. For me, tomorrow is my 44th wedding anniversary. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend and though we have had our share of ups and downs we have weathered the storms and now enjoy the blessings we have been given in our lives. Happy Anniversary to you Steve, I am truly thankful for you!
Now...time to get on with my card and the current challenge at The Paper Shelter! Our letter this months is "E" for embossing of any kind. I know some of you are so much more talented with this than I am and I am excited to see what you come up with. I am using "The Big Bad Wolf"! I loved this stamp the minute I saw it and knew it would be one of my favorites. I used a Stamping Up embossing folder, and four die cuts to finish off my card! I am entering this card at the following challenges:


My Song: More (This was sung at our wedding!)
More than the greatest love the world has known,
This is the love I give to you alone,
More than the simple words I try to say,
I only live to love you more each day.
More than you'll ever know, my arms long to hold you so,
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping,
Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you're gonna be mine.
I know I've never lived before and my heart is very sure,
No one else could love you more.
More than you'll ever know , my arms they long to hold you so,
My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping,
Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you'll be mine,
I know that I've never lived before and my heart is very sure,
No one else could love you more, no one else could love you more.
