Embossing With Friends

Today, the Friends of Speedy TV are embossing for the Monday challenge.  My card is very simple, but you know that is just exactly how I like them.  I just had to make sure that I stamped my sentiment before I clear embossed my basket weave over the top.  I mount that on a piece of chocolate colored card stock and then wrapped my burlap string around it.  My little trick for the burlap string is some scor-tape.  I seriously love that stuff!  Next, I punched out a little red heart and adhered it over my string! Finally, I brushed the edges of my card base with a little Versamark cube and called it good!  

I played along with Kelly's challenge from the Stamp 2 Spend thread and used chocolate tones and red.  I got one bonus item on there with my heart.  Yay, me!

I hope your Monday turns out to be a fabulous one!  Since my washer quit working properly, I decided to take a personal day and get that handled!  I have to drive my little one to school and then it will be off to the laundromat for me!
