2 for Designed 2 Delight

As I mentioned yesterday, I have two more cards to show you, both of these using images by Faith at Designed 2 Delight where she always gives a free image on the first Friday of the month and then if you create something with it that week and link back to her, you will get the next week's image free as well. This is a progressive challenge and as long as you images. October's image is "Hope Butterfly".  I added a sentiment from her set "Peace and Comfort". We have a friend struggling with esophageal cancer at the moment and I plan on sending this to her.

At the D2D blog they also have a weekly challenge on Saturdays and this week we are challenged to use leaves in our image. I have had this one from D2D for a while and am not sure if I have ever used it, I can't believe that I have waited this long....I think that it is just gorgeous. It is simply called "Fall Leaves" if you go looking for it in her store.

I printed two of the images, resizing one a bit smaller. After coloring , I cut out the smaller one and mounted it with foam dots to give it some dimension. The copper ribbon is just some holiday ribbon in my stash and the sentiment is another one created by Faith for D2D "Doxology". Love how this one turned out.

Now be sure and stop by and check out the have until tonight to make something with the free Hope Butterfly and get in on their progressive challenge and a day and a half on the Falling Leaves. Hope you saw something you liked and that might inspire you to give it a try.

Both cards are beautiful! Love the butterfly and ribbon, so pretty and subtle. The second card is so pretty with the leaves and rich fall colors, especially printing two with the added dimension. Have a great weekend.

Hi saw your question on the movies, if you are a member which is free to join the price for premium seats are $12.50 and to upgrade to the plus which is the reclining seats, blankets, pillows, popcorn and waiter it is an additional $5 and you get to reserve your seats ahead of time. Here a movie ticket is about $10 and then about $5 for popcorn and soda, so IPIC is about $2 more, but so worth it. :)
