Challenge 208--Let's Heat Things Up!

Baby it is cold out there--at least in my neck of the woods it is, hence this week's challenge.  We are going to be heating things up around here--heat embossing that is.  Show us what you can do with heat embossing.  There are some really fun techniques that use heat embossing but just plain old heat embossing is always a wow by itself.  The team has put together some amazing samples for you to get your creative juices flowing but before we show you those we need to share the deets to our challenges:
