JUGS Technique Challenge



Wow! 3 posts in one day! I guess that is what happens when you have a sick little boy at home.. Craft away while he naps. We have been homebound since Friday and I am shocked to say that I am not climbing the walls yet. Usually, I get stir crazy! I hope we are n the road to recovery, although just this afternoon he spiked another temperature of 103. Poor guy! I just feel so bad for him, but he has sure been in good spirits considering…

I was happy to set aside my Christmas card project and do a birthday card today. Leave it JUGS to save my sanity just at the time it needed saving! This week their challenge to was dry emboss a birthday card! I whipped out my Cuttlebug and the numbers embossing folder, which I finally got the chance to use for the first time.. I used PTI’s Cupcake Collections stamp set and Birthday Basics for the sentiment. I struggled with adding more to it. I tied a bow and thought it was too much. I added some buttons and thought it was too much. But then I thought not adding anything was not enough. But, I opted for not adding anything else. Didn’t want to take away from the embossed background. I also heat embossed the cupcakes for an added touch…   I am not crazy about this card to be honest with you! I definitely see some flaws, but that goes back to my Kindergarden teacher for not teaching me to cut on the lines better, ha ha ha!!! But, here is my card  nonetheless. Don’t be surprised if I a do another one to redeem myself! LOL!!!!
