Double D, Punch

Good Morning! 

Darlene and Diane from the Double D Challenge Blog are celebrating their 4th Anniversary!  Can you believe that?  They are a dynamic Duo and are great to 'work for'.  Don't forget to wish them congratulations when playing along!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog

Here is your Inspiration Tile:

Here is what I created:

I created a lemon lime border by using an old 2" scallop circle punch.  I then cut them in half and sponged with corresponding ink.  Layered in a piece of Vellum on top.  Then I found a small lemon/lime slice stamp from Simon Says, Adult Beverages set. Using Versa Mark and White Embossing Powder I heat set an image on each 'slice'.  Inks in Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi and Amalgam Black.

Sentiment is from Gina K Designs, Sweet Strawberries.
I also used an old corner punch to round each corner of Designer Paper and card stock.  Cherries colored with Copic Markers and then I added Glossy Accents to them.  Buttons and Baker's Twine to mimic the cherries as accents.

We had a wonderful Christmas Holiday, even though we were all sick.  I am still fighting a powerful head cold and a horrendous cough.....blaaaaah.

May 2020 be healthier than 2019 for us all!

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!

You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!

When we were little, I lived in Southern CA where the summers were long and hot. My mom often made lemonade and put them in plastic popsicle "conveyances" of the day. those homemade popsicles were one of our favorite treats because we could not afford store-bought treats (smile).
