Beach Time

  Welcome back Double D Friends!

Thanks so much for all your support!  We sure love seeing all the amazing designs you all share each and every challenge!  

 Before we share our next new challenge, we have some very sad news to share.


 It is with GREAT SADNESS that we learned over the weekend of the passing of our dear friend and team mate Kathy Krug (Stampwithk).  Kathy has been with us since the very start of Double D back in 2015 and shared so many beautiful creations that certainly helped make Double D what it is today!  She told me many times how thrilled she was that we asked her to join the team ... I believe she said it was the first DT she'd ever been on.  We were truly blessed to have her as a part of the Double D family. 
Rest in Peace dear friend ... we are sure going to miss you!
