Fantabulous Cricut #48-Emboss It!

Good Morning Friends.  I hope you all had a great weekend!!

Thank you for joining us this week for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut.  This week the challenge is to use any kind of embossing.  Yay, I love embossing!!!

My lit' monster and "Monster" were cut with Mini Monsters Cart.
The patterned paper is from ProvoCraft Celebrations Stack.
The background embossing is from Sizzix, Baby Geo Textured Plate.

The embossing on him was done with Sizzix, Dots embossing folder.

The "Hugs" was cut with Smiley Cards Cart.
I used Acrylic Paint for the lit' dots for more dimension and pop.

Now this cute little card is a spinner card.  The little monster spins as he goes from one end of the card to the other.  I was really excited about it because it was the very first one I had ever tried to make.  If you want to see a tutorial on this, Techniques by Trish has a great one.  Just click HERE.

The other reason why I decided to make this fun monster spinner card is because I'm sending it to a sick little boy named Aidan.  8(

Aidan is a sweet lit' 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So.... if anyone else is interested in sending him a card and bringing some love and smiles to this lit' guy you can send them to:

c/o Tanya Stilwell
P.O. Box 143

I hope you all join us for this fun challenge and hop over to check out the amazing projects by our wonderful Design Team!!
Thank you everyone for coming by and lets keep lit Aidan in our prayers for a full recovery!!
