Week #17 - 'Let's Make an Impression'

Audrey is our lovely host this week and has chosen embossing for our challenge, so you all should have a ton of fun with this one!  We want to see your most creative designs using embossing somewhere on your project!  Create a card or project using embossing - heat or dry - and share it with us here in the Tea Room this week :)

Note:  You must use the Week #17 challenge requirements and DIRECT LINK your project back to The Shabby Tea Room in order to be considered for the weekly prizes.  Please only link your submission for this challenge and not your entire blog or multiple project submissions.  Questions?  Contact me!

I am pleased to welcome back ANABELLE O'MALLEY as our Guest Designer this week in the Tea Room!  Anabelle's sweet and vintage design style is always so inspiring to me and it's such a treat to have her joining us again this week!  Anabelle is an esteemed designer for Prima, Webster's Pages and Tattered Angels, among others -- some of my favorite companies and products!  Thank you, Anabelle, for taking the time to create and inspire us this week :)

A great challenge with lovely samples! There was a time I dry embossed everything with my Cuttlebug -- but long gone are those days! Was fun to pull out an embossing folder again -- thanks!
