Carousel Box Cover!

Yay, I finally made a tissue box cover that I've been seeing alot lately.  My sister Kris and I decided to make one for another sister challenge.  So we came up with the Christmas theme and also using the same carousel horses we found at Beccy's Place.  Here is what I came up with..




I am sorry if the photos look a bit blury, I really need to get a better camera or find some better lighting!!  Anyway,  you can find the tutorial on how to make these Tissue Box Covers at SCS here.   It was really fun and easy to do.  I can't wait to see what you can do with this.  Now hop on over to Kris' blog to see what she came up with.  I know you'll be WOWED!!  Thank you for stopping by today...have a great Sunday =)

DD18 - Embossing

Good Morning!  It's time for another challenge over at Double Delight Challenges =)   This week's freebie from D2D was a request by Kristine.  Her daughters, my niece's,  are entering a robotic lego competition in December and they needed some t-shirts with their team name on them....The laughing Giraffes.  Isn't that cute...Faith drew up these cute giraffes for our freebie for those who played in last weeks challenge.  Thank you so much Faith,  they're so cute!!  Here is the freebie...

Use these laughing giraffes (or just one of them) and add some texture to your card by embossing!  Faith shared some neat embossing ideas recently ... like running a dishcloth through your cuttlebug etc.  Be as creative as you'd like!  If you don't have an embossing machine, please feel free to create texture using another method.  Can't wait to see what you come up with =)  

*Be sure to link your card to D2D and Double Delight Challenges.

DD16 - Think Pink!

Happy Saturday!!  Which means another challenge at Double Delights.  This week Kris is the hostess and in keeping with the theme for October, she decided to go with PINK.  That's right!!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.   So the challenge is to make a card using this D2D image , and the color pink.  Maybe make a card to let someone special know that you are thinking of them!

Faith has 2 new sets in the shop now.   They are so beautiful so you must hop on over to take a look.  Plus, she has a discount of 50% off for members that you can use on one of these sets.  That makes it $1.50.  WOW!!  Thank you for your generosity Faith:)

For my card I went CAS.  I printed out the image but I also changed the color of some of the words to pink,  just to give it a little pop of color.  The dp is from DCWV.   Then added a ribbon and made a pink ribbon to symbolize the Breast Cancer Awareness.  The sentiment is from SU. 

Remember to link your card to both Double Delight Challenges and Designed 2 Delight by next Thursday Oct. 21.   Thank you for stopping by, have a great weekend!!

Sister Challenge - Fancy Folds!

Insert taken out of card..

Morning all!   Yesterday my sister Kris and I decided to do one of our fun "Sister Challenges".  So the challenge was to pick a fancy fold that we've never done before.  This is the Criss Cross Card.  I found the tutorial at SCS while scrolling thru the resources.    I've never made one before so I thought I would give it a try.  I must say that this was real easy to make with so many options.  I used some dp from DCWV Holiday Collections, and for the tab at the top I just used one of my nesties and folded it.  The sentiment and stamp are from SU.  I hope you enjoy this and take some time to make one yourself.  Now head on over to see what Kris has made.  Have a great Sunday and thank you for stopping by *Ü*

DD15 - Color Challenge!

Good morning!   Today is the beginning of the Double Delights 15th Challenge.  I am the hostess this week and the challenge I chose was a color challenge.  I would like to see Blues & Greens along with this weeks designed 2 delight image on your project/card.  Isn't this a cutie...

If you like this image, wait til you see what Faith has put in her store.  It's a set called "Willow Whimsy"  to go along with this image.  Here it is..

Isn't this awsome??  Thank you Faith!  And if you're a member, you'll get a code for 50% off to make this cute set only $1.50, so hurry!!

For my card I found a tutorial at Beccy's Place.  This is called a Tunnel card.  Very easy and quick to put together.  Here is a pic of the inside of my card...

There are so many options for you to decorate the inside.  I took the freebie image and printed it out 3 times and punched them out using my circle nesties.   The left side I left blank a little for any writing I might want to do.  The sketch I used for the front is the new sketch from Carly.  This week, Glitterbabe is sponsoring her sketch, so be sure to enter for a chance to win 2 digis.   Here is her sketch..

Remember to link your card to Double Delights as well as Desinged 2 Delight so you can get next week's image free in your inbox!!   Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great weekend:)

DD14 - Border Punches & A Winner

Good Morning!!  No...I didn't get my days mixed up!  Kris and I decided to postpone our Double Delight Challenge for one day due to the excitment going on over at Crafters Digital Art Center.  As many of you know it was World Card Making Day yesterday and so many activities going on. Which ends tonight BTW so there's still time to get in on the fun.   So that's why I'm here today.
***But before we get to this weeks challenge, I would like to congratulate Terrie of Paper Addict.  She is the winner of the $10 GC for the month of September.  Congrats Terrie!! 

This is Kris' week to pick the challenge and she chose to use Border Punches.  Or you can take a single corner punch and make a border with that.  So many ways to get a border punched.   Remember to use the newest freebie from Designed 2 Delight "Two Apples"  when you enter.  Also, it's the first Friday of the month so this image is FREE for everyone.

For my card I used the free image "Two Apples"  along with some dp from DCWV Amber Autumn stack.  I printed out the image on the computer and added an apple button.  I followed the sketch from this weeks  Sketch Saturday.

*Remember to link your card at Double Delight Challenges for a chance to win a $10 GC at the end of the month as well as Designed 2 Delight to get next weeks digi free in your inbox.
