Verve October Project Parade--HURRY! Challenge Ends Soon!

My cuttlebug and I have a special bond. I did my first embossing with him after my husband brought him home for me as a Christmas present three years ago. Since that time, I've spent many days and nights with him, feeding it paper and A,B, and C plates, folders and dies as I lovingly give his little handle a turn. He was as excited as I was to learn that Verve needed him in a big way this month as a hero for the October Project Parade. He served proudly along with his friend, the Heat Gun, Big Blue. Okay, okay, down to business---I really do love embossing and only recently acquired a taste for heat embossing---I LOVE IT and have actually learned how to do it without making such a mess (finally)!!! I'm sure you are already aware that this month's Verve Project Parade Challenge is to emboss to your heart's content! Heat or Dry--easy peasy! You still have a little time to upload your creation and link it to THIS POST where you can also find all the details on how you can win $15 in Verve Bucks! I just want to thank my best tool friends in the world, precious Cuttlebug and my Heat Gun, Big Blue who really makes me melt. Without them, this card would not have been possible.
Love, sus
