April 15th, and better than taxes - it's time for the Dueling Darlings to face off!! This month our Darling Hostesses, Kadie for the Divas and April for the Dazzlers, picked "Girls' Night Out" as our theme! Here's what April sent to the Dazzlers:
"Who doesn't like to spend time with their bffs?" We were also asked to post who our longest friends are and what we like to do when we spend time with them.
Here is my creation with April's kit.

Cardstock: Sugar & Spice, Coffee and Fuschia Fizz by Coredination.
Her kit also contained an ample assortment of embellishments, of which I used the pink ribbon.
April, I have to admit, here are the first things I said when I looked at your kit:
"Ohhhh, cute image! WOW, that's a LOT of pink!"
Anyone who knows me knows that I really don't do pink. Never have. The closest I can come is using it for flowers and I can use the various coral shades and some with redder tones.
However, I do like combinations like brown and pink, turquoise and pink, etc. So I decided to use some Tempting Turquoise from my stash.
Here's a closer look at our party girl. Of course she'd get her glam on wearing sparkly clothes and shoes for her girls' night out!
I also added some sparkle to the 4 corners of the brown scalloped rectangle to set her off from the background a bit.
April, my friend - your kit challenged me, hehehe, with all that pink! And that's good! I hope that you like what I came up with.
I am blessed with many friends, scattered all across the country. My absolute longest friend is Cheryl in Seattle. We count more decades together than either of us cares to admit! And when we are together it really doesn't matter what we're doing, we just enjoy each other so much. She's my treasure.
I am also fortunate to have a tight circle of friends near where I live and we get together a few times a year, usually for a meal at one of our houses. We've been there for one another in good times and tough times.
And of course, there are my talented card making friends from the US, Canada and New Zealand! These women in the Dueling Darlings and Stamp Addicts are an important part of my life. We share our challenges and our triumphs in life and in our craft. What could be better than that?
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the Dazzlers and the Divas blogs for their creations this round. You won't be sorry, I promise!
