It's the 15th of the month, and the Dueling Darlings are at it again! This month's hostess for the Dazzlers is Paola and she sent us some sweet goodies to work with.
4 swatches of pretty DP, two pieces of ribbon, two checkered butterflies, various beads, buttons and a ribbon slider. And the cutest image from Stampin Up: Serene Spring.
The butterfly has been painted with Diamond Stickles to give it a little bling. The flowers and little lady bug have been painted with Crystal Effects to give them some shine.
The shiny beads have been added to the checkered butterfly and the flowers on the DP were also painted with Crystal Effects, adding a bead to the center of one. The butterfly wings are folded out for dimension.
Paola included that pretty daisy with the pearl center, which I added right beside the sentiment, which I hand cut on the edges.
We were asked to post our favorite thing about the month of May. I would have to say that May always means starting my container gardens for our deck. Flowers and herbs mostly. We also set up the hummingbird feeders, little fountains, some soft lights, and another bird feeder or two.
It really feels like the summer season is starting when the deck is set up. We love it out there and spend as much time enjoying it as the weather and mosquitos allow! Summer is short up here, so we all have to make the most of the time we're given.
That's it for me for this month's duel! Be sure to use the links on my side bar to visit the Divas and the Dazzlers and admire their creations for this round. Thank you Paola, for giving us such a great kit. Thanks for visiting!
