Winter Birthday for the DDC and RESQ#25


This week I am the hostess for the Doubledog Dare Challenge. I DARED the team (and you, if you want to join in with us - add DDC to your keyword) to make a winter birthday card. I kept it simple.... we have enough stress these days! This card is for my aunt in Arizona. She hardly misses the snow and ice of New England, and I feel it my duty to remind her of what she HAD!! Her birthday is Christmas Eve, and I always send her a card like this!!


The base is Going Gray. The next layer is Caramel to match the two deer, then silver mirror paper. The main panel is cut from a card I received last year and couldn't bear to throw away! There is sparkling snow all over the front...hard to get a good photo! This is also for the SC257 today at SCS. The layout is wonderful, and oh boy! yesterday I bought the EK Success Fleur-de-lis punch, so I just had to use it.



Also for the SC with a slight variation, I made this card for the RESQ#25 challenge. The directions were to use: polka dots, pink, something round, and food. I think this matching paper is DCWV, but I can't be sure because there is no printing on it, and I've had it for ages. The ice cream is from Stamps Happen, and an Amuse sentiment plus some punches and dimensionals finish it up. I love this saying.....but Carol (Bobbiesgirl) ends it with.....on the good dishes. WOW! That's it. I'm done for the day!!

  5. Anne, I really enjoyed reading your blog in the early morning hours this morning. Loved the story about your Valentine card--that was a funny line! The winter card is beautiful. I save elements off of "store bought" cards too. The punch looks great. Your RESQ card is perfect. There was a lot to "digest" there and you managed it wonderfully. Thanks for being such a great friend of the RESQ.

  7. I love your ice-cream cone card! I think I have a piece of that dp somewhere too! This is one of my favorite sentiments, and I like the addition of "...on the good dishes" too. Super card for this week's Res-Q Challenge. Thanks for playing and come back soon.
