Merry Monday Challenge #157

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous and it looks to stay this way for most of the upcoming week!
Friday morning I went and had my procedure done for the sciatic pain. All went well and I came home and slept most of the day away! Saturday I woke up with a bit less pain. I am keeping ice packs on my back and have been taking it easy since. Still keeping my fingers crossed for that pain to completely disappear soon but I will be having another injection in a few weeks for the arthritis in my Facet Joints. I hope to feel like a million bucks after that! :)

So, this week we have a new challenge for you from over at Merry Monday. Bonnie is our hostess this week so let's get to it!

My card was made in quite a rush yesterday! My oldest daughter will be moving into the basement this coming week. They will be here for 6 weeks while they wait for settlement on their new house. She will be coming here with her boyfriend, Brad, and their 2 Jack Russell's (Shady & Rosco). So, while they work during the week, the 2 doggies will be crated downstairs and that is where my stamp room is. Yesterday, my dear sweet hubby brought a boat load of my stamp stuff upstairs to Kelsey's room and set up shop for me for the next few weeks until I get the basement back. It's a bit cramped with Kelsey's bed still in there but it's do-able for now. As I was setting up the room, I found this embossed piece of Cool Caribbean cardstock that had been heat embossed with a snowflake stamp from the Peddler's Pack. I added it to a layer of embossed snowflakes and attached that to a Cool Caribbean cardbase. Then I just grabbed a sentiment, cut it out with Circle Nestibilities and sponged it while still in the die. Added a button with white baker's twine and 2 clear rhinestones and called it done. 
I was able to snap my picture with natural daylight for a change!! That makes me happy! LOL

Hope you will stop by the Merry Monday blog to see what the other ladies have created this week! Lots of inspiration!

Love how you've incorporated both heat and dry embossing, Wendy. This is such a crisp and cool looking card. Fabulous! I hope your pain treatments work and you are pain-free.

Love this card!
When I started cardmaking, embossing was my favourite (without cuttlebug or...)
