Double Challenge Card


Happy Tuesday, everyone!! What a day I've had...I spent all morning with my parents, then this afternoon George and I had some appointments and made a trip to Sam's. I love that store...now I just have to find a place for everything!! I am so ready to sit and do nothing!! I worked off and on all day on this card....everytime I had a minute I was cutting, coloring, or redoing. Sure wish quick cards came easy for me....I spend way toooo much time on one card!!


Thanks for such a wonderful color combo, Emily....Riding Hood Red is my fave new color!! The other colors for the Tuesday Splitcoast color challenge included Basic Gray and Always Artichoke. This card was also made for the Double Dog Dare challenge I do each week with a group of awesome SCS friends. Michelle (sf9erfan) was the hostess with the mostess this week!! She challenged us to use something we haven't used in a long time...some forgotten stuff. I mixed the old with the new...the new Winter Post set was paired with two old sets: Lace Snowflakes and Fruit of the Season. The Winter Post skaters image was stamped with Basic Gray and colored with RHR and AA ink pads and an aqua painter. The snowflake was stamped with Basic Gray and the red rhinestone waited a long time to be used! The images were cutout with Nestabilities and mounted with dimensionals onto the beautiful Imaginisce paper called Snowy Jo. The sentiment from the Fruit of the Season set was stamped across the top and the RHR ribbon is the finishing touch. Thanks, Michelle, for a great challenge...I am still on my quest to use all my old stamps at least once this year. Now I can cross two more off the list!! Thanks for visiting and come back again!! I'm not finished making fall and Halloween cards....I will have a couple more to upload tomorrow!
