White on White with a Pop of Red

Happy weekend! It's been a really nice weekend for us. Both of our boys are visiting for the holiday. They may not be back for Christmas so we are soaking up as much time as we can with them. Today the twins came to our house for the first time. They aren't allowed in public but their parents came for a meal and they visited with the family while they were in town. The uncles (our sons) got to meet their niece and nephew for the first time. It was a really nice day with lots of hands around to help with the babies. Tomorrow both of the boys will be heading home. I will be sad to see them go but they have a life elsewhere and we just try to spend as much time as we can with them when the opportunity to be together presents itself. It's been awesome. I'll miss them again.
We have a new challenge beginning at The Outlaw CAS challenge. The challenge this week is quite interesting. I made two cards for this one; hated the first card I made so I found a little time to make another one this afternoon. This is what I came up with.


I won a blog candy on Kittie Caracciolo of KitteKraft. The candy arrived in the mail today and it included this Sizzix embossing folder of a door. So I decided to use that embossing folder and add the pop of red as the Poppy Stamps wreath die. The added banner, die cut with MFT Pierced Banner Flags is embossed on vellum and extends across the wreath. It certainly is better than my first idea so I am thankful to Kittie and the postal worker who delivered it today. 
I am entering these challenges:
I hope you'll join our white with a pop of red challenge at The Outlawz CAS. It was a real challenge for me. Hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend, my US friends. Tricia will go back to work this week so I'm not sure yet how that will affect my schedule. I would think I will be spending more time with the twins but we'll see. She still didn't have her schedule yet for work. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully crafty Sunday!

I've never seen an embossed door....very cool. I won something from her about a year ago. Sounds like you had a lot of live going on these past few days....how wonderful. Mi think your door expresses all the happy that was inside the house beyond the door.

Your card is very pretty, I really like the embossed door. I also won an embossing folder from Kittie a little while back.
So happy you all got to spend time together and family got to visit with the babies. I know how much you will miss your sons, I miss my family too!

I love door cards like this Donna, they make me think of home and family, which is what Christmas is all about. The red wreath adds a fabulous pop of colour and the sentiment is wonderful. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy
