Sweet Kids-CTMH

How cute are these kiddos? I just love this set from CTMH called Childhood Portrait.  The beautiful papers are from the Grace kit from CTMH as well and the rhinestones are Kaiser.

Now, I had some trouble with the embossing and have decided that I don't love heat embossing or any embossing for that matter on CTMH cardstock, but because this matched so much better than the SU brown I have I went with it anyway. I used my embossing buddy to clean off the paper before embossing, but still had some flecks on there and it left the powdery residue. Oh well, it's still so cute and I just love the silhouettes.

Not exactly sure who I'll give this card to so there is no sentiment on it, but I will add something to the inside when it is ready to go onto it's new home. 

Back tot he grind it was this morning.  It was so nice to not have to be up at 6:15am but it's a short week now, so that's ok.

Thanks you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!

  8. Kelly this is beautiful. And I am also very fond of silhoettes which you have created beautifully here ... if you have not mentioned it, I would never have guessed that you aren't fond of heat embossing because you are an expert at it.

  20. OK, I feel SO much better, I have been having the problem with CTMH for years but though it was just me. Most of my CS is CTMH and I rarely use others. I guess I will have to venture out. Ugh! I thought I was just embossing disabled. Anyway, now I know.
