Happy Monday!!


Hello everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful Monday!!! I was busy washing clothes and cleaning....I did find a little time to make a card for last weeks Double Dog Dare challenge I do with several SCS friends. Anne (jdmommy) was the hostess and she challenged us to make a card with red, white, and black. Now I'm all caught up, just in time for a new challenge tomorrow!! Please join us in the challenge....be sure to add DDC to the keywords section when you upload to Splitcoast so we can find you cards. You can see all the DDC cards here.

This is also for the StampinB's second challenge to use diecuts. You will have to check out their new blog....lots of talent there!!!

The Inkadinkado Rose image was stamped with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep. It was then colored with Twinkling H20's, dusted with Dazzling Diamonds, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals. I cut the black circular rhinestones in half and attached them to the side of the image.

The background paper is called Daisy Chain by Imaginisce and the luscious May Arts red ribbon is from Rubbernecker Stamps.

I made this for my DD Holly and her DH John.....they lost their 12 year old fur baby, Queenie, last week. She was such a sweet friend and will be missed!!

Thanks for visiting today...Whew...I finished this in time to watch Dancing With the Stars....life is goooood!!!

I am the above author who didn't reread my comment and catch my horrible mistakes. My brain seems to work faster than my keyboarding skills. I love this beautiful card and wow are you ever the master at aligning those gemstones along the edge. I think that is really cool that they are varied in sizes.
