Linda has cooked up another fun recipe swap at the Catered Crop.  With this challenge  we want you to make an impression.  That is we want to see the impressions you make with embossing. Just add embossing to join us in this Catered Crop Recipe Swap.


For my project, I made an impression using Provo Craft Seeing Spots & Distress Stripes embossing plates.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I hope to have more to share soon.
