LIM Challenge week 32 - Seeing Double!!

Happy Sunday everyone!!

What a sad day today is. 10 years since the terrible events of 9 11 happened. I can remember it as if it was only yesterday. My heart breaks when I think of all those who were killed, especially those 343 firefighters who died so that others may live. My thoughts are with all the families of those who never returned home that day!


So today I have a card to show you for this weeks LIM challenge. Chrissie and Mandi want to see a one layer card this week with the theme 'seeing double' where they'd like to see TWO of something.

Now I saw this card last week, created by the ever inspiring Vicky, so I had to CASE it as I just fell in LOVE with it! I adapted it ever so slightly so it met with this weeks LIM challenge.


I was so happy with the result that I quickly made another, just with a different sentiment (and the tree's closer together)....


and of course the very simply decorated insert, just to finish it off.....



Thanks so much for the inspiration Vicky!!!

Materials

CS: SU Naturals Ivory

Stamps: SU Trendy Trees, Thnak You Kindly

Tools: SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, Choc Chip, Cajun Craze, Bravo Burgandy, Old Olive
and Tangerine Tango Markers, Blender pen


Well thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm off to do a spot of baking before my husband gets up (he's on nights), so he can enjoy one of my infamous fat rascals with a cup of tea!!

Dont forget, if you want to purchase anything off of the last chance list you only have 19 days left and quite a few of the items are already sold out, so hurry before you're too late!!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~

Edited Post

Thought I would just share with you a picture of the delicious fat rascals I made this afternoon for my hubbie. Of course I had to have one to with a cup of tea so thats why there's only 4 left in this picture. I will probably regret it on wednesday when I get weighed, but boy was it yummy and worth every calorie!!

Hi Vicky - it makes me very happy to think I've inspired you but these stamps are amazing aren't they?! I love the way you grounded your trees and the sequence of your photos made me smile - it looks as if the trees have met and fallen in love! Perhaps I'm just in a romantic mood today! Vx
