Hello everyone. Today's post is part of a blog hop just for fun among crafty friends from this year's Eat Sleep Craft Repeat (ESCR) retreat. As I mentioned in previous posts, I was at a crafting retreat a couple of weeks ago. Last year I attended it only part time. This year I took in the whole experience, and it was so much FUN! Some of us (me especially) were suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out) 😂, so sleep was low on the agenda and looking / feeling tired became evident as the days went on. Meet the talented ladies I was so lucky and honoured to spend time and craft with. Loll's talented SIL, Alex, took this lovely photo of us.

Loll lead the charge and was instrumental in organizing and making this retreat happen. Thank you so much for your hard work, Loll! She found a large house in the beautiful Crescent Beach neighbourhood (a suburb of the Greater Vancouver area in BC, Canada), and got it for a phenomenal price, too! Every day for a week, we played with different products and learned various techniques from each other. I loved everything we did! The technique I chose to do with the group was a double embossing technique using a die and an embossing folder. My sample at the retreat was slightly different than this card I ended up with. I will explain this technique in a future post, so stay tuned.
Here are more double embossed cards.
