No. You are to do the technique. An image was stamped 3 times. Two were clear embossed and one was embossed in white and then cut into 3/4 squares.

Had plans to make cards today but instead met friend for lunch and ran errands with DH. Which meant I needed to go to Michael's for a washi tape holder since Karen was such a bad influence on me. I started cleaning my scrap room and decided I need more washi holders to put my twine on and another organizer for the top of my desk. So I'm in the middle of cleaning and getting my room back together so I can play all day tomorrow! Except I do have to go back to Michael's because one of the holder I got has a big nick in it so need to exchange it. I love organizing!! Make me happy happy happy!!

I have wonderful news!! You can play along in Deedee's Monthly challenge without a blog....all you have to do is link up to your creation here at Scrapbook.com. I tried it out and it worked. When you hit the link button and the box pops up USE THE LINK AT THE TOP that says LINK TO THIS PAGE. Right click on the link and pick COPY LINK LOCATION. Then go to Deedee's challenge and click on the link button. In the box that pops up put in the link you just copied. Then you can play along monthly and get FREE images without having a blog!!!

This will go for any challenges that have that same type of link!!

I actually finished two! I figured I should at least try to finish the two I subjected on everyone else. I am especially loving the lift category results from everyone though. Think I'm personally going to play around with lifting that one a few more times in the months to come.

Anyway....

Here is for the lift category:
