OWH Midweek Throwdown
This is my first Midweek Throwdown challenge for Operation Write Home (OWH). Weekends are usually my challenge days. But this week's throwdown featured dry embossing. I love dry embossing! I think it's the best way to give your project some "wow" without having to be a creative genius. I dry embossed the black paper and then decided to try to give it a chalkboard effect - not sure I pulled it off. What do you think?

My First Step Cards
I follow a very talented Close To My Heart Independent Consultant named Brenda Rose. A few weeks ago, she offered one of her card kits for mail order. I wanted to learn how to make step cards so I quickly ordered. Brenda did a fabulous job designing these cards. I put the two Thanksgiving cards together last weekend. I really love how they turned out and was surprised at how easy they were to make. Of course, Brenda did all the hard work! Aren't these great?
I wanted to update this post to include the two Christmas cards included in Brenda's kit. These are just as gorgeous and use CTMH's Frosted paper collection.
