Beary Special Cake

In August Kay launched a challenge for the members of our playday Facebook group. We had recently taken part in the 30 day colouring challenge and we were feeling a little lost without the challenge of colouring each day so Kay decided we needed something else. This was the first challenge but I didn't want to post the card on my blog until the persons birthday had passed.

It was a bingo challenge and I chose "circles, dry embossing and punches" it seemed fairly simple at first but it wasn't. First of all I had a little difficulty getting the next level embossing folder through my ebosser, it took three attempts and lots of turning of the folder. Next was punches, I had a few martha stewart and a few ek success to try and they all seem to be working fine but its much more difficult than passing a die through lol, I'm pleased they still work though.

I very rarely make cards without having someone in mind although I do think I need to batch make more.
