Dies R Us Challenge - Anything Goes


  Hello Friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.
Remember, our challenges are now ANYTHING GOES as long as you used dies carried by companies at the Dies R Us Store!

 Today's design was inspired by crafting friend Leslie Miller - Running with Scissors.  I spotted her design back in February but ran across it again today so just had to case her creation ... you can see it HERE

 I have used the following products:

Memory Box 'Wrapped Stitched Frames' (#30117)
Tutti Designs 'Scallop Stitched Nesting Rectangles' (#418)
Altenew Simple Rose Stamp Set
Impression Obsession 'Have a Nice Day' (#614)
Derwent Inktense Pencils

Don't forget to check out sister store in Canada . . .
Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts 


It will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

 I hope you will come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.

 I had so much fun creating today's card,  I just had to make a second one ...
