Dueling Friends

Today  is the 15th, so it's time for a little duel... Dueling Darling style.

This month the hostesses are Melina (Dazzlers) and Carol (Divas). They chose a marvelous theme...

Friends Are the Family You Pick Yourself

Seems to me that is a VERY appropriate theme for this month, since this marks the 4-year anniversary of the Dueling Darlings, a group of friends who certainly "picked" each other.

THANK YOU Melina & Carol! We ♥ you!

Here are the details of the kit that Melina sent the Dazzlers:

Image: Whimsy Stamps "I Will Carry You"
Paper: Recollections &

Ribbon: Michael's
Buttons: My Favorite Things
Pearls and Brads: from my stash
I cut the clouds and embossed them with my Cricut & Big Shot.

Here's the card I created with Melina's fabulous kit:

Here is the inside of my card:

I had such fun with Melina's kit and I can't wait to see what the other Dazzlers did with it.
Let's go take a peek...

Let's check out the Diva's blogs to see what they did with Carol's kit, too:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only item I used that wasn't in Melina's kit was a piece of Stampin' UP! cardstock for my cardbase.

The touches of black you used set off the pastels on this card. So sweet. I love the yellow boots! Oh and some plaid fave! Great card, J!
