Find your embossing powder, dust off your heat gun and have fun with our challenge this week. We can’t wait to be inspired by your fun samples!!

There's no time limit on our challenges. Please feel free to participate in any of our challenges at any time. To play along, just post your project to your blog or gallery, then include a link in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, use keyword: OCCC

  11. I've only recently bought my heat gun, so didn't need to dust it off ;) But thank you for the challenge. I've made a funny Valentine card, and the text says: Will YOU be my Valentine?
    Kind regards from Slovenia!
