My Favorite Things, Dueling Darlings Style

NOTE: I have two blog posts today, so be sure to check out the one that follows this one, too. It's a Fresh Brewed Challenge and tells you how to get a free image!

This is December 15.... which means it is time for another DUEL! The Dueling Darlings were hosted this month by Terry and Laura Jean. They chose the theme "My Favorite Things" and challenged us to not only create a card with their marvelous kits, but also to post a few things that make us happy. Before I show you my card, I'll tell you just a few - a very few - of my favorite things.

I ♥ My computer - and the Internet (when it works!) hmph! Our internet was down the past two days so I'm really glad it's back! That's why this post is so late today. I'm sorry! I hate letting the Dueling Darlings down!

I ♥ Christmas trees/decorations - lots and lots of them!

I ♥ My Hideout - because that's where all my "toys" are!

I ♥ Designer Papers!

I ♥ My car - because I love to go places!

And I ♥ the Kit Terry sent to all the Dazzlers this month! You should see it! WOW!!! Such fun!

Here's the card I created
(and I just used some of the goodies she sent)

Now let's go see what the other Dazzlers created with the kit:


And we don't want to miss seeing the Diva's creations with the kit LJ sent them:
