Irish Blessings

Today's the 15th! YAY!! It's time to get our DUEL on.... the Dueling Darlings have some fun things to show you.

In case you're wondering who the Dueling Darlings are, we are a group of crafters - two teams - who ever month have a little fun. Two women serve as Hostesses and they come up with a theme. They then send their group members a kit and we get to create. Then on the 15th we reveal. Today is going to be such fun!

This month's hostesses are April (Dazzlers) and Kadie (Divas). THANK YOU April and Kadie for giving us such a fun kit/theme!

Here's my card:

Here's the inside of my card:

Part of the fun of this month's challenge is to share a RAK that we've done or will do. I don't mean to be a rebel, April and Kadie, I normally like to keep those sorts of things secret. LOL! In fact a couple of years ago I decided to try to blog about my RAK Birthday project, and then became convicted that for me if it is a true RAK it needs to be quiet. So shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I won't tell. But be assured. I do believe in doing RAK's and do them often.

Yep, just call me a rebel.

Now...... it's time to go to the other DuelingDarlings' blogs to see what they made. Please be sure to leave them some love (they will be so glad you did!)



This is my 86th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Beautiful coloring, love the outlined image! Very sweet and elegant card - the gorgeous focal point flower is perfect!

I, like you, never tell about RAK's either but I dont' think rebel is the word I would use to decribe you, you silly girl!

*Irish* you blessings, my friend! <3 You!

Jeanette, your card is lovely!! I really love how you showcased this immie and the vines cascading from the flower is such a neat idea! I understand about keeping RAK's quiet. No worries there! You bless my life every day, so I know others are blessed by you and vice versa too and God gets all the glory! Love ya, Jeanette!

April said...

And I like how you added the twine....very neat idea!

Wow! What a beautiful card, Jeanette! Love those gorgeous papers, beautifully colored image and fantastic flower with the bit of attached twine!! That Irish blessing is so beautiful and the perfectly framed with those lovely panels.
You are a blessing to me, dear friend, in all you do to cheer, encourage and inspire!!!

I don't think you're a rebel at all ☺

Great card, love it as usual!

I am so admiring your layout and the look of the interior of your card! It is great!!!

You know what it says about telling your RAK - we both said the SAME thing!!! LOL I know that you do a lot of kind things, 'cause that's how you roll!

Super card!

The same two things that caught Melina's attention caught mine as well. Love her glow and the way you used the twine with the flower. Great idea to lint color her pants! I always stress about coloring
