Hi Everyone!
It's Wednesday, I don't know about you all, but it feels like it should be Friday!!! Guess that's why they call it "Humpday", let's hope today goes by quickly. My son is working with his dad today, so I won't have his company while working today. It's nice to hear his voice in the background or to stop & have lunch with him. Guess Gilby will have to do for today and he talks a lot, some times, too much!!! LOL

I'm finally able to enter another one of Miss Emma's Throwback Thursday !!! I just recently got one of her stamp sets & I love them, the quality is supreme, just like PKS. I'm also very excited because she is having previews of her new stamps this week, I can't wait until Friday to see them all!!!
The challenge was to use either the Just Because or Wild Card carts & to incorporate any kind of embossing that you like. I chose to use the Whale on the Just Because cart, because I thought this stamp would work perfectly with the Whale. I'm not a 100% happy with this card, I kept messing with different ribbons for the top & nothing seemed to work, so I ended up with the 2 rope knots. I wish they would come out with twine that was a solid color other than the craft kind. I have a bunch of the mixed colors of the bakers twine, but it doesn't work on every project, so if anyone knows of where I can get some solid colors please let me know. I used dry embossing, with my CB. You can't really tell, but he's on a wobble.

Gypsy-I welded the 2 ovals together & used it to create the rest of the card (I love my gypsy)
Cricut Cart-Just Because (all cuts are from that cart)
Stamps ~My Creative Time~Wow So Many Candles & PKS-Critter Faces (med)
CB Folder~Spots & Dots
Cardstock~PTI & DCWV Textured
Chalk~Pebbles Pearlesence (for the whale)
Stickles~Tim Holtz~Distressed~Faded Jeans & Baby Blue
Rope~From Stash
Pop Dots
Ink Pad~Momento~Tuxedo Black
Black Marker
White Gel Pen

Gilby & I LOVE your comments...his tail just wags away when he sees me smile!!!
