Double Down at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good Morning everyone! I know I have been MIA on my blog for the last few weeks, but our house has been hit so hard with illness. My oldest son Tristan ended up in the hospital, he is on the mend thank goodness. I am recovering still from my acute pneumonia, now I am just tired, tired, tired...LOL. Robin, Kaitlyn and my DH are all over the flu. Thanks for all the the support you continue to give me on here. It is going to be great to go blog hopping.

We are back with a new Challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks and lucky me I get to host it! My thoughts on the challenge this week is that we make something that has two things on it. It could be two images, two buttons, two ribbons etc... It could be quite a bit or just a little. The girls over at 4 Crafty Chicks have done a totally fabby job with Challenge #77.

Challenge #77 - Double Down (pairs)

On my card, I have two squares, two buttons, two strips, two twines and two images. I hope you enjoy the creation.

The sentiment says: And the came where the risk it took to stay tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom - Anais Nin.

Recipe: Stamps: Happy Harmony (SU retired) and sentiment is a Verve stamp; Paper: Marnia Mist, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Whisper White; Ink: Marina Mist and early espresso; accessories: crumb cake buttons, twine, glue dots

I would like to enter my card into Make It Monday - #76 Anything Goes

Boy oh Boy! I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge. Lori, Leanne and Melissa have done an amazing job. Our GDT Heather has a fabby creation to show you too. So please take some time to join us. We love coming to see your blog.
