Yep ... I have some exciting news to share with you today!  

Last month, Della at I BRAKE FOR STAMPS asked me to be her Guest Designer for October and I was thrilled to say YES!!  So EACH MONDAY this month I will have creations to share with you that were created from stamps that she so generously sent me.  With that being said ... and today being the first Monday of October ... here's my first creation(s) to share. 

This Card & Tissue Box Cover Set uses the image

The directions from the Tissue Box Cover are basically those shared at Splitcoast Stampers ... 
although I do my lid opening differently. 

Recipe for card & box:
Papers:  Paper Pizazz 'Red Holly' designer paper, red, green, & white cs
Stamps:  Great Impressions (outside card sentiment), Penny Black (inside card sentiment, Stampin' Up (box sentiment)
Ink:  Versafine Black, Versamark
Accessories:  Prismacolor markers, UTEE, Martha Stewart icicle border punch, Petaloo 'velvet hydrangeas' flowers, Spellbinder Classic & Scallop Oval dies, Red Stickles

Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you have any questions on this project ... just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.  Don't forget to pop on over to I BRAKE FOR STAMPS to see all the goodies they have and also check out their other sites:   IBFS BLOG , I BRAKE FOR DIGIS, and I BRAKE FOR CHALLENGES

Have a wonderful week!
