Dueling Darlings Feel the Love!

Life is a lesson, and know what I learned this past week?  Multiple rounds of shoveling heavy & wet snow, knocking icicles off of the roof and moving a refrigerator and pantry cupboard should never be jammed into the same 4 day period.  At least not at my age, haha!

So, hanging my head in shame here...I am late getting my Dueling Darlings challenge card done and posted.  Bufferin did its magic and today I was able to coax my fingers and wrists into some paper therapy.  Here is my card:
The Dazzlers' kit was sent to us by our dear Debbie and I am very grateful to have a few extras of that great image - thanks Debbie!!  The flowers, heart brads, both ribbons and the two DP's were also included in her kit.  I added a chocolate brown colored card stock for the base.

Our theme this month is "Feel the Love" and we are honoring the two founders of our group:
Jeanette and Kelly.
These two women are very special, each for many reasons!  But to me, they are special, spiritual friends, who are always compassionate and willing to lend a shoulder or a shout out, which ever a person may need at the time!  I am very thankful that they are my friends, and that they invited me into this wonderful group of women, and they all have blessed me with their friendship and support.

Debbie and Barb, thanks for a heartwarming theme and such a great kit.  I hope that you like my results.

Unidentified Image Swap Reveal!

Today is the reveal date for those of us participating in the Unidentified Image Swap on Split Coast Stampers.  Jody, our host for this round selected a Snoopy & Woodstock image.  We all received the images from her, make 4 cards & return them to Jody, who swaps them out, we receive 3 different cards back and the Unidentified Image for the next round.

Here's what I made with image:

Snoopy is too cool with his shades on, lovin on little Woodstock!  So I figured that some bright, summery colors and paper were just the thing.  Hopefully others agree.

Here's a view from an angle, trying to capture some of the shine and glimmer from the bright DP used on the background panel:

I tried to make this a general, all-purpose type of card, it seems like we can always use some of those.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's creations.

Next round has me as the hostess.  I'll be interested to see their reaction to the image and hope that they have fun with it!

Thanks for stopping by, life's been a bit hectic lately.  Hopefully things will settle down some and I can get in more card making time.  Fingers crossed!
