Awesomely Artistic Emboss Resist Card in Tip Top Taupe Stampin Up! UK

Before I get to today's tutorial, I feel the need to explain my leave of absence. The reason is that I have been very poorly. My hubby, Steve, has been my brick, as I have struggled through two bouts of Influenza, Pleurisy & pneumonia! Just one of these on it's own, would be enough to knock most of us back, but my challenge with the above has been a difficult and lengthy one. I cannot remember a time when I have not spent at least two full days a week in my workshop. I hadn't gone in there since my last video/blog, and earlier this week, when I decided to get my Card Swaps done for this weekends Stampin Up! On Stage Live event in Telford. It is a great event for Demonstrators across the UK, and for most of us, it is out annual chance to catch up with one another, and bring back lots of swaps, to give us fresh ideas for out own workshop events. So watch this space, as I may be sneaking in some of those swaps to share with you.

Anyway, until my health is back to normal (hopefully another couple of weeks should have me firmly back on my feet) I will stick to 3 video's a week. Thank you for sticking with me!! I really appreciate it.
