Challenge # 20 - Embossing

Jill here, first of all I'd like to thank all who entered our Anything by T!m theme, so many fantastic entries yet again! Also thanks to those that left us comments. Frankie will be announcing the Top 5 for the Anything by T!m theme next Friday so do call back for that. In the meantime please join in for a chance to win some lovely things by T!m in our blog candy giveaway

We have a new teamie to introduce!!!
But before I tell you who has joined the team, we have to say goodbye to Sarah, who is leaving the team due to work commitments, au revoir Sarah. We thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us, we really will miss you! Good luck and have fun in your new job, it is truly a dream job for you!

So with great fanfare, taking Sarah's place on the team is Neil, of Neelz Expressionz! Welcome Neil!! Neil has previously entered his work in our challenges and it is always a delight to see his work, he is so talented! I have been following his blog for a while now and am always impressed with his work, so do visit Neil's blog and take a look around, you'll not be disappointed!!

OK, I'll hand you over to Neil now, and yes, we are throwing the poor chap in at the deep end... Neil is hosting this next theme...

Hi there everyone; yes I have truly been thrown in the deep end! Thanks for the kind words of welcome Jill and team; I am thrilled to be joining you on the design team.

The challenge this time is all about EMBOSSING.

We want to see your projects using embossing; whether it is dry embossing, single heat embossing or triple embossing... or a combination.

As always there is the prize of £10.00 of The Stamp Man vouchers for the top prize and four coveted top 5 blinkies for the runners up! All the challange rules are on the sidebar. This challenge will run until 21/04/11. When you have made your project then post it on your blog and come here to link it up so we can pop over to visit (Remember to link to the specific post!)
