Embossing at Merry Monday

Hey everyone, I'm back!  I've been away from blogland for a few months and I'm so happy to be rejoining my Merry Monday family!  This week's theme is to make a Christmas card with wet or dry embossing and I decided to do both, a little dry embossing for the background and heat embossing for the sentiment.  Check it out!

Bonnie's inspiration photo is full of great texture:

While I was away, we were welcoming our newest family member, Adalie.  Here she is with her big sister Ansley.

You can see all the details and gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team here.  Or stop by their blogs and give them some love:
