Fire! Fire!


Now that I have your attention...

It's time for this month's Dueling Darlings to post their creations.

The Dazzler's Team Hostess this month was none other than our own Sweet P - Paola. She sent us a delightful kit filled with gorgeous papers and embellishments and the most fun FIREy Penny Black images.

Take a look at my card:

We were also given the instructions to happily celebrate a brand New Year Birthday with a bit of humor.

Fun & Laughter for ever after!

I'm not sure I got the laughter right on my card - the embellishments are just so gorgeous, KWIM? But the image is absolutely hilarious... so I hope Sweet P isn't too disappointed in me.

One last instruction from our hostess was to share a New Year resolution that you NEVER kept so far, but really wanted to. hmmmmmmmm... can't do it, Sweet P. I've NEVER made a New Year's Resolution in my life. I do set annual goals though, and one of my goals last year, that wasn't met, was to try to get a card published in a magazine.

Okay, enough talking... let's go see what the other Dueling Darlings created.

First, check out my fellow Dazzlers:
