Sit & Stay - Double Trouble Challenge #85 "Something, Anything, Everything" - and YoYo Fun

This is my Design Team Card for Double Trouble Challenge #85 "Something, Anything, Everything" and chose Crafting Happiness as my previoius partnering.  

My daughter and I went to her cabin for a weekend of crafting; but they don't have cable available so we have a limited use of hotspot and stash. Of course I hadn't decided what my inspiration was going to be for this challenge before leaving home.  

Twisted Sister has a great optional twist using a YoYo Trick for inspiration. All you need to do is pick one of the samples given in the post or choose from 50 YoYo Tricks HERE.  In my travels I came across "Over the Falls" trick and got excited... my inspiration was to make a Water Fall Card.  Unfortunately my die for cutting a Water Fall card was at home which would have made it so much simpler.  You Tube here I come... tutorial is Waterfall Card By Dawn

My daughter had a doggie stamp with cute sentiments and perfect for my waterfall card which doubled my inspiration with another YoYo trick "Walk The Dog".   

Followed the tutorial on the different cuts for the backgrond and water fall cuts and scoring.  Stamped images using Black Memento Ink and coloring with Copic Sketch Brush pens in a variety of colors, added images to scored flap and placed the waterfall to the background papers.  Masked Lucy and the dog food dish and added another sentiment.  Lucy's outfit was stamped on design paper, fussy-cut and pieced on Lucy's image.  Here are a couple more photos when the waterfall tab is pulled down.  

At Double Trouble Our Things 1, 2 and 3 sure bring on some wierd combinations but I like to challenge them all; however, you have the flexibility of doing just Thing 1 to create a theme "Something, Anything, Everything" to be eligible for our random draw. This challenge runs for one week only.  

For those that really like more of a challenge may want to include Twisted Sister's optional twist and choose to enter one of our previous partners... and you will be rewarded an addtional chance at our random draw.  

We have added another Special YoYo Bonus Entry including any recent or old photo or scrapbook page (backlinking accepted) to include a YoYo. If we have 10 persons participating in this challenge there will be a separate random draw and a $40 CloseToMyHeart product selection.  Please join us for this fun challenge too.

I love this! Waterfall cards are a great way to showcase a bunch of similar elements and the dog theme is terrific! Who needs a die when you can do it yourself!

I love what you did with the stamps on your waterfall card, Sue! As always, your work is impeccable and the card is fabulous!

Wow, I just love this card, Suzanne! I have been wanting to make this waterfall card for a little while. Thanks for sharing the tutorial you used (and you might have talked me into purchasing the dies LOL). Thank you for playing in my Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
