A Double Dare Thanks

The Double Dare Challenge for last Tuesday that I do with some SCS friends - was from Michelle (sf9erfan) and that was to case a card from the now 'old' SU catty.Wanting to use my 'bought em, love em, never used em' stash of stamps - I cased the card on Page 18 of the catalogue using the Organic Grace stamp. I used the flower instead of the dragonfly - changed the colors and cuttled the panel instead of stamping. I used one of the sentiment stamps from Upsy Daisy.

This is a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card. I thought it came out pretty cute!

You too can join in our fun weekly challenges - just make a card using the challenge (case a card from the Fall Winter 2008 SU catalogue) Post it on SCS and use the keyword DDC. The Double Dare team will be looking for your cards!! There is no time limit to these challenges so come along! You can see all the Double Dare Challenge cards here. And you can see all the Double Dare Team members on my side bar (scroll down a bit).

Stamps: Organic Grace & Upsy Daisy: SU
Paper: Pumpkin pie: SU, Summer sunrise, white, Ripe Avocado: PTI
Ink: Pumpkin pie: SU, First Snow: PTI
Accessories: script guttlebug folder, foam dimensionals, SU scallop circle punch, circle punch

And I also wanted to share with you the wonderful project my DH Kent just completed for me to use for my "His Holy Name" challenge 6"x6" pages.

Every other Sunday I'll be hanging a new page on this beautiful wooden rack. I'll be able to flip them over - back and forth - forth and back - so I can keep reviewing them throughout the year. Since there will be 26 of them - he's going to make me a 2nd rack so I can put 13 on each one so neither gets too full. He earned a BIG kiss for this one!!

Short post today - I have a church meeting at my house so gotta go!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

Ooh, love your card but I REALLY, REALLY love what your hubbie made for you!!!!! I have purchased a couple online but this one is the MOST beautiful I have seen with the rounded edges the smooth wood, and it looks like he sealed it in something. He really needs to sell these. I am ready to purchase. Ha! WOW!! What a wonderful guy you have there! Thanks for sharing! It will be beautiful when it is done for sure!
