3challenges, 2 Cards....Still on Vacation!!




The color challenge today is to use Kraft, vanilla, and Bravo Burgundy. Wasn't it lucky I had this gorgeous Anna Griffin paper with a vanilla bg, and variegated flowers containing the burgundy.

DH and I went out early this morning, and I spent some time (and money) in two stamping/craft stores. One of the things I bought was a fun package of primas, and used them here. I also used my favorite new punch, the EKsuccess Curve punch.
I also did the combined DDc and MMTPT67 challenge.


The hostess for this week's Doubledog Dare Challenge is Charlene (LilLuvsStampin), who DARED us to make a card to go with the MMTPT67 story, ending with our weekly tea party. I bought some fab silver gray metalic dp and used it with Classic Pickups, and a pkg. of clear stamps that have words for transportation.
My story is that the truck is the color of the dust in the attic where our poor teddybear has been languishing for years. After picking up supplies and a host of seamstresses to repair Dusty's fur, we'll have tea, and discuss who will be custodian of our re"fur"bished bear. Join us and be sure to put DDC and MMTPT67 in your keyword.
I'm having fun on vacation...especially because I can take part in card making too!!
