A Huge Hello

August 31 is the fifth Monday of the month so it's time for our Double Trouble Anything Goes Challenge #65. The "Fifth Monday" challenge is usually one week in duration. For this challenge only, the dates are Friday, August 28 through Sunday evening, September 6, 2020, which is a switch from our usual start date of Monday.  There are three elements to this challenge:

1. Thing 1: Trouble Maker (required) is permitting you to play along with an Anything Goes project.

2. Thing 2: Double Dare (optional) has indicated that if you want to earn an extra chance at the random prize, then share your card at any one of the challenges where we have partnered previously. A list is provided on the challenge blog. I elected to go with Crafting Happiness #64, another Anything Goes Challenge.

3. Thing 3: Twisted Sister (optional) has decided we should celebrate Emma R. Nutt Day by placing a telephone on our projects. On September 1, 1878, Ms. Nutt became the world's first woman telephone operator. You will earn an extra chance at the random draw if the phone image you use is NOT a mobile phone.

I have a stamp set with a telephone that has never been used. I stamped and fussy cut the phone with a little heart and added it to the card with foam tape. The large hello was cut using a die set and the words at the top of the card are also from a stamp set but different than the one with the phone. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with blue cardstock strips.

We hope you'll visit us at Double Trouble Challenge #65 and Crafting Happiness #64 so you can read about our challenges and perhaps play along.

  1. Clean and simple always works. This is such a sweet card with the little telephone.

  2. What a fun card! Love the layered sentiment. :)

  3. Yes, a huge hello to you too... isn't it amazing when you find a stamp that you didn't know you even had and much less never used. Fun card.

  4. That big hello is perfect to go with the telephone! That's fun that you could get use out of that phone stamp when you hadn't before. I had to really search my stash to find a phone too! Love it when challenges do that for me :)
