My golly....We were out of power for 55 hours. I am so happy to have my puter back. Two days without my computer....ack....I was going crazy! Hee. We had snow, wind, ice and power outtages here. It is definitely winter.

This is my last week as Guest Designer for the CAS challenge on THE OUTLAWS CHALLENGE SITE. What a fun site. If you have not checked it out you should. You upload your project for the appropriate challenge to a thread. It is very personal. Everyone comments on the thread. Fun place. And always prizes.

This week's CAS challenge on The Outlaws Challenge Site is to use something NEW. So I am using my NEW THE ALLEY WAY STAMPS and my NEW crystal stickers from Doodlebug Designs.

The butterfly is from PRICELESS JOY and the sentiment is from JIBBER JABBER both from THE ALLEY WAY STAMPS.

This is the first time I tried this technique of using a die to cut from the bottom of my card only. So one side of the die is on the bottom of my card the other side is under my card. Then I pulled it through my Cuttlebug from the other side and only enough to cut the bottom then I brought it back the same way. Then I repeated with the embossing process. I used the same die set but a smaller size for my white panel.

STAMPS:Priceless Joy, Jibber Jabber (The Alley Way Stamps)
PAPER:Berry Blast, Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics YG23, YR04, RV14, B05
ACCESSORIES:Crystal Stickers (DoodleBug Designs), Spellbinders curved rectangles, dimensional tape
