Running late

Oh I am so late this week but my few days away 
meant more to do when I got home.
But wow did I enjoy myself
even if I did come home with more than I intended.

I could have bought more!!!!!!!!!
but was very good and put some of it back.
There is also quite  list in the order book too for next time.

Well now onto my card.
I have had very little crafting time this week and 
52CCT wanted a single layer card.
So I decided that I would emboss with one of my dies.
Now if there is anyone in blog land with an EBosser.
Please, please, please, what is the recipe for embossing with a die.
I have tried every combination and still it cuts out.
Having wasted all my craft time on this it was a mad scramble
to come up with a card and as I did not have my glasses on
just regard any smudges etc as intentional.
After all it is handmade.
The holly stamp and greeting are from 
Penny Black Transparency called Christmas wishes

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in and for all the lovely comments they make my day.
