I’m trying to build my stash of thank you and birthday cards, but it seems like it’s a never ending battle!  Like I said last week I really like the In My Heart card making kit sentiments so here I am again with a different layout.  The wood panel at the bottom of the card might be a far stretch at Toffee, but I just had to use it.  I also stamped the small THANKS banner in Toffee and cut it out and layered it over a piece of wood-grain banner which I stamped in Juniper and then trimmed.  I tied a little bit of Juniper Thick Twine into a knot and frayed the ends to add some dimension.

Now it’s your turn to come play along.  You’ll find the rules for the Color Dare here.  When you visit our home page – make sure you visit each of the Design Teams pages and leave them a comment.  We each work hard to bring you lots of inspiration each week and it’s nice to get some “love”.

Thanks for stopping by.

Double Trouble #2

Happy Monday – it’s time for more trouble – Double Trouble that is!  You’ll be seeing regular challenges the first and third Monday of each month and I hope you’ll be joining us…on the off chance there’s five Mondays in a month – it’s going to be a Free For All (stay tuned).

Melanie, Sue & I are having fun brainstorming these challenges and I hope you’re having fun following AND playing along.

This week our challenge is to NOT USE patterned paper on your project.  I’m popping in with a TWIST (or an additional challenge which is always optional) to use a die cut, the Double Dare this week is to link to the ever popular Three Amigo’s Blog Hop.

It wasn’t much of a challenge for me not to reach for patterned paper…I tend to like the Clean & Simple Style.  I embossed my white panel with the Woodgrain embossing folder to add texture and then die cut the banners from the Close to My Heart Basic Banners Thin Cuts, the 1 inch squares were also die cut with the Documented-Cardmaking Thin Cuts and then stamped with the coordinating flowers a pearl adorns the center of each flower.

I hope you’ll decide to play along with the Double Trouble Blog Challenge you can find the rules here.

Thanks for stopping by…I hope you liked my card and will leave me some love.  I read each and every comment that’s left.
