Double D - Lots of White

This is the second challenge for Double D this month of November 
and Darlene is our hostess.
She has the most beautiful pictures of white on white for your inspiration.  I did a card all in white with lots of texture. But when I took the picture it does not look all white.  That is because I used white ad cream card stock. I am currently trying to get rid of the cream as I prefer white.  Here goes anyway.

For this card, I used some dies that I have had for a long time, but used them in a different way. In the center panel is the Memory box Sheer Circle trimming and made a pinwheel sort of design.  The coffee cup is called Morning Cup. Along the side is the Dribble Dot die. The sentiment is Power Poppy called Short stacks. 

Go and see what the design team has for you HERE. 
                                          Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving from me. 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!

Double D Challenge - Christmas Joy

Christmas Joy is our theme for this first challenge in December.  How appropriate is that? 
But there is a twist, you must use the word JOY on your project. Diane, you are a tricky hostess. 

Here is the inspiration board for you. 

Lots of use of the word JOY. 

Well here is my story, I have a word die JOY, but it is in Flordia.  I know that I have it,  because when I looked in my bits box and saw it.  It was red card stock.  So I placed it on my desk and kept an eye on it. If I could not wait until traveling to Florida, I would use it. As you can imagine, I wanted to get this done and not have to worry about it, so I forged ahead with what I had.  

Here is the result
Too bad that you can't see the gloss on my JOY. I accidentally found this embossing powder in my stash and what a surprise for me. I will be taking this with me where ever I go. Seriously!

Of course, my friend Donna Phelan always does the inside and so I need to keep up with her. 

Supplies for this one are: Paper Trey Ink JOY die
The Greetery Botanicuts Pine Bough and Plaid background
Gina K Designs Festive Foliage for the sentiment.
Stampin Up embossing powder Glassey Glaze ( found this in my stash and I will not be without is again)

For anyone that enters this challenge, a random winner will be given this gift.
