Waaaaayyyy back in July the Dueling Darlings had their challenge and here is what our wonderful Jeanette (Forest Ranger on SCS) chose as our monthly challenge:
Through the years, through thick and thin, we've blessed each other in many ways and all these years later, we're still together – like a flock!
And here’s the challenge – Since we are celebrating 4 years together, you must have 4 of SOMETHING on your card - 4 flowers, 4 brads, 4 gems, 4 different designer papers, etc! Those 4 things must be the same ELEMENT (in other words, 4 different gems are okay but not 1 paper, 1 ribbon, 1 brad, 1 button = 4).
Here’s the kit I put together for the Dazzlers:
Image – Penny Black Chicky Work Out stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black (notice there are 4 chicks in the image.)
Sentiment – Great Impressions stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black
Designer Papers (4 of them) – from Paper Studio
• Happy All Over – Floral
• Poteeka Stripe
• Small Polka Dot – Pink/Cream
• Texture Yellow
• Paper Studio – Gemstones (there are 4 of these)
• Ribbon Boutique – Ruffled Ribbon
• Sew-Ology – a piece of an actual tape measure
• Spare Parts - Brads
• Spare Parts – Clear Starburst Brad
Spare Parts – Flowers (two kinds; 4+ of these)
And here is what I came up with:
3 of the four fun papers in Jeanette's kit are featured on the front, along with 4 yellow gems and the measuring tape.
Plus: the flower uses 4 pieces and her stunning large rhinestone brad in the center:
The inside shows off 4 of her other flowers and the 4th type of DP. It also uses the sentiment that Jeanette included:
What an amazing kit this was! Too bad I am marker-challenged right now. That's another story, one that we're still working on here...so my coloring isn't quite as good as it should be.
But what IS as good as it should be are the friendships and loyalty that these women have for each other! It doesn't get any better than that and I am so fortunate to have them in my flock!!
Look for other postings in the coming days as I slowly reassemble my crafting space and unpack all of my toys. And thank you to all the Dueling Darlings for your patience with my tardiness!
