Dueling Darlings in the Garden

Today is the day for fixing things.  First my sprayer on the kitchen sink - cancel the plumber's visit tomorrow and save over $100!!  Plus I finally got back into my blog to post - or maybe Blogger decided to fix itself...Anyway, I'm on a roll here.

Today is also the day to post our creations for the Dueling Darlings.  Terry was our hostess this month and she sent the prettiest image (thanks for the extras, they will definitely be used!)

Here's what I came up with:

Isn't it a great image?  The papers and colors of embellishments that Terry picked out are perfect together.
Here's the contents of her kit:

  • Image - SU! "Love Is Kindness"
  • DP - The Paper Studio
  • Cardstock - Core'dinations "Sea Foam", "Merry" and "Jet Stream"
  • Enamel Dots - Want 2 Scrap
  • Trim - Michaels
  • Flowers - Spare Parts

Let me tell you about this crochet trim she sent:  it's adhesive backed!!!  I've been a little out of touch with what's new out there for over a year, but this is fantastic.  Now I need to go and find some for my stash!

We are to share what we like to plant in our garden.  Herbs, veggies, flowers of all sorts, trees, shrubs, bulbs, ornamental grasses...if I like it I try to find a way to plant it.  Obviously the weather here and specific requirements of many plants are not compatible.  I don't mind that.  It just means that eventually when I move there will be lots of new things for me to grow!

Well, I'm off to visit the blogs of the other Darlings and admire their cards.  Plus, now I can post my last two cards for the last duels.  Like I said - I'm on a roll.
