Double D Challenge and a Celebration!

We have lots to celebrate this month as we are staring our third year of the Double D challenge.  That is very special to the team and I hope to you as well.  Read on for an extra Anniversary surprise. 
See what Team Diane and Darlene have made for your inspiration.
We are also starting a new year with a challenge that you will love
Our Challenge is "It's on the Menu."  Use anything that you might find on a menu, let your heart follow your stomach.  I found the top left picture this summer and had to send it to our team as the restaurant was called Double D.  What fun!
Here is the card that I made for your inspiration.

Must have a matching envelope.


The restaurant where I took the picture, was a little coffee shop, so I was thinking of that when I did this card.  Here is what I used on this card.
MFT Coffee Date stamp and die and Perk Up inside
Gina K Coffee Therapy sentiment
Spellbinder dies Curved border
Gina K cardstock in Dark Chocolate, White,  Embossing powder in white
Distressed oxide ink in Walnut stain and Faded Jeans
Spellbinder background stamp, tiny dots, and Nuvo drops in ivory and red.

Remember if you enter a card, you may win a prize! Here they are.
 
 
 
Yes, there are three prizes for you to win from Double D Challenge.
Surprise, I am also offering a Gift Card for Dies R Us to a random entry in this challenge. 
What a good reason to enter in this challenge.
The winner of the gift card will be announced in the winners blog for this challenge.

  7. Oh, now this is cute! There's just something about the warmth of coffee and friendship. Love how you used the stamps for a background. And those sweet little hearts... I've got a thing for hearts. It's been hard getting back in the swing of stamping since Christmas, but I'm feeling more inspired every day. It's been a great year at Double D with you and all the rest of my teamie friends!
