Time Spent with Cats

     Today, I have the honor of being a Guest Designer with the Double Trouble challenge.

     Here are all the details you need to know to play along.

Challenge #54 - "It's Hip to be a SQUARE"
THING 1: Trouble Maker says, "Click It's Hip to Be a Square to sing and play along with Grover and Friends from Sesame Street.  To show us how many squares are out there, make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or other square creation... or use design papers, stencils or embossing folders which have squares.  The more squares... the more hip you are.  You can use other shapes but we must be able to see at least one square on your project."
You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below to earn additional chances at our random draw.

THING 3: Twisted Sister says, "I'm Hip but not necessarily Square.  Since many of us, like me, have organized craft rooms (haha), select one of your older stamp sets (no digis) that you have not used in a year or more for your project.  Please don't make us guess... add the approximate year to your blog post with the link to our challenge.  

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.

THING 2: Double Dare says, "Sometimes stuff just happens and things get crazy. Our challenge partner has notified us that their team is unavailable to participate as planned. But we are remaining "hip" and upbeat! So we'll stand up, "square" our shoulders and ask you to participate in the same manner as you do for Something, Anything, Everything challenges. In other words, link your project to one of our previous partners listed below for another chance at the Random Prize. 

     I'm linking up with a previous partner, Crafter's Cafe!  I found an old, clear-stamp, set hidden away in a drawer in my craft room.  It was from Stamping Bella and it has to be at least 4 years old.  I'm sad to admit that I had never even opened the package nor used the stamp but now I've remedied that with this square card.

Congrats on the guest spot!!!
Wonderful card and I love the way it looks like the image is recessed. Almost like a shadowbox. So pretty and a precious image.

Hi NC, this is my kind of card.That stamp is gorgeous and I'm sure judging by the sentiment is one you will use over and over.
