Hello Friends! It's time again for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #85 , and oh what a fun challenge we have for you!   This week's challenge is called "Hide and Seek!"   For this challenge you will create a card where the sentiment/words are hidden at first glance.  I'm thinking tags, pull-out card, T-slide card...hidden messages!  Don’t forget to STAMP! Afterall, we don’t call this STAMPtacular Sunday for nothing! 
You will have from now until midnight (EST) November 6th, 2010 to complete this challenge.
This week's fabulous prizes are donated by:
PRIZE: Winner’s choice of FIVE Digital Products!

Our Very Own...Dee

Here is my card for this challenge.  Both the image & digi designer paper is from ROBYN’S FETISH

Give a little pull on the chimney & pee-a-boo!  There's my message!

Here is a closer view of the flowers & grass below the window. 
I gave the flowers in the long flower planter a 3-D look
& I found a teeny weeny flower pot punch to go with my teeny weeny handmade flowers!
Although you can't really tell from this picture, the image is encased in acetate - to make it look like a real window.  I used my scallop border punch & more foam dots for the roof.

What a fun project this was!  I hope you will join us for this fun & fab theme at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  I know that I, along with my DT Sisters can't wait to see what you create!
