City Crafter Challenge Blog Week#99 - Seeing Double

Hi there!
It's Ros with you this week with a brand new challenge... 
Are you ready to get out your punches and Dies?
I hope so because this week the Challenge I have set for you is
To use both the Positive and Negative of a Die or Punch
In case you are wondering ... 
The Positive is the shape you cut out with the Die or Punch
The Negative is the shaped "hole" it leaves in your paper or card stock
I'm looking forward to seeing where your creativity takes you ... Just play and have fun!

Week 99 ~ Seeing Double

Guest Designer

Get to know Linda.....

My name is Linda.  I live on Long Island with my husband of 23 years and our two teenage children.  By day, I am a public relations consultant. By night I am a scrapbooker who loves to make cards.  Or, am I  a cardmaker who loves to scrapbook?  I'm not really sure which it is but if it involves patterned paper, stamps, ink, adhesive and a couple of punches, I am happy! Thankfully my husband is very understanding of the fact that my stash has taken over two closets and is still growing.  In addition to paper crafting, I love to travel, bake, read (especially on my Kindle Fire) and bike in my local park when the weather is nice.  I am so honored to be guest designing here at the City Crafter Challenge Blog.  I have to admit that this challenge took me out of my comfort zone, a bit.  I often use positives and negatives but not usually on the same project.  So, kudos to you, Ros, for coming up with a great challenge.  Thanks for inviting me to play along!
