The Little Things

There is just one moon and one golden sun

And a smile means friendship to everyone.

Though the mountains divide

And the oceans are wide

It's a small small world.

It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all

It's a small, small world.

Perhaps you're wondering why I posted the words to the famous Disney song. If you were here with me, you'd even hear me humming the tune. I just want you to know... it's all Melina's and Joan's fault! (snickering)

Who are Melina and Joan, you ask? They are two of the Dueling Darlings, and this is the day for the Dueling Darling post. In case you're new to my blog, there is one day each month (the 15th) that the Dueling Darlings post their kit cards. This month the hostess for the Divas is none other than Joan and the Dazzlers hostess is Melina. They put their heads together and came up the with the theme The Little Things! And their instruction to us was to not only create with the kits they sent us, but to also put onn our blogs the first thing we thought of when we saw the theme for this month's duel. For me, when I saw the theme, I immediately thought of the song "It's a Small, Small World."

Now that that's out of the way, here is my card:

The kit Melina sent was wonderful, so I had no trouble making a card... well, except for the sentiment. EEK! Melina's instruction was to "think of some witty sentiment for your card." I tried, really I did, but I came up with ZILCH!!! So finally I gave up and came up with something quite silly/dorky! Sorry, Melina!

Now it's time to hurry off to the other Darling's blogs and see what they made.

Lovely as usual, Jeanette! It's a stroke of genius to have the Dr. Suess quote on the inside! Big points for that touch. Of course the layout, coloring and finishing touches are great too. Another wonderful creation!

April said...

Dorky or not, I love it! Actually, I love the whole package ~ including you! I love how you show us the 'little rhings' each and every day and how to make them count!

I'm totally ROFL when I saw the Dr. Suess quote together with It's a small world - my mind instanly went to Island of Adventure where they have the Dr. Suess rides, lol! Your an original!

Your card is just beautiful! Such a delightful layout - like Terry's - I like the crispness and cleanliness of it. Pure elegance!

Blessings my friend!

Wonderful card, Jeanette! Love those darling mini animal images!! You and I must have been thinking alike 'cause we used the same layout only you went way beyond me by including the design inside your card as well. I think your sentiment is just perfect!! Beautiful!!!!

Inside and out, your card is delightful! What a fun challenge you had!

Jamie Sanchez said...

Such cute animals!! That is not a dorky sentiment either! I love it and personally I do think it applies to animals too! :)

Terry Ladwig said...

What a cute card Jeanette! Great layout and great sentiment on the inside! I couldn't think of anything clever either for my card, so don't feel bad!!

Thank you for getting this great group of ladies together for the monthly challeges! I really look forward to the 15th of every month!!

Wonderful Card Jeanette!

I love the layout and the colors are perfect! As usual, the inside has as much attention to detail as the front of the card.

Thanks so much for setting up this wonderful group of ladies--now great friends!
