I HAVE to keep up and not miss a post of the LIM challenge, I did a trial on Saturday evening, knowing I am no good at stamping and I could practice during the rest of the week, well the rest of the week has gone and I haven't been able to do any more, I am entering this, so that I can say I have missed only one week and that by 2 hours. Have to give my apologies to everyone for the type of standard you are not used to.
The stamp is a Docrafts years old, and a Cuttlebug folder both  coloured with water pencils, poor card is as "bear" as the day I did it lol
I also have to apologise that I have had limited time to comment this week, but WOW looking at the thumbnails, fabulous cards as usual.

Hi Faith, I appreciate your desire not to miss a week, sounds like a true LIMette.
Personally I'm not too fond of the colouring of dry embossing... it's so difficult to get the effect just right, whereas to leave it white gives a more subtle effect.
I must agree that this card is not your finest to date, but thanks for entering.

Love that embossing folder...very delicate flowers. I don't think I would have colored them...mostly because I would never be able to stay in the lines! LOL!

Hi Faith, try not to be too disheartened love, we all have an "off" week (mine have been acetate and white on white!) - for someone who doesn't stamp, you've done a grand job, and I actually like the coloured embossing, very pretty. Huge hugs, Sxx

We all have our off days Faith and tomorrow's another day - and another challenge - and we'll all be tearing our hair out again, Lol! x

Hi Faith
Aww you sound so disappointed, but, don't me. this is a cute card
i personally think you;d have preferred it without colouring the embossing. It;s not something I love I have to say!
We all have 'off days/weeks...i do!!
Thank you so much for your loyalty

This is so sweet - I love your embossing. I admit, I had to give this week's LIM a miss, because I haven't any embossing supplies.

Hi Faith. I have to say I really like the look of the coloured embossing! I know it's one of the most difficult things to do and I think you did a great job. Vx

Hi Faith, I'm on a catching up mission here:0) Top marks for entering, as Mandi said colouring embossing is difficult but your little bear is so cute, we're supposed to be having fun with it after all. :0) xxx
