Mother Nature Is Laughing

Okay... am I the  only one that thinks this scenario is funny? Darlene lives out east where they've been getting blasted time after time with HUGE snowfalls. Seriously! I have lost count of the inches, but suffice it to say, the snow they've received in the past 2-3 weeks is deeper than Darlene is tall.

Wait for it. That's NOT the funny part.

The funny part is Darlene is the one of the Dueling Darling Hostesses this month. She and LJ came up with the theme for the duel and then sent kits to their fellow team mates - Darlene to the Dazzlers and LJ to the Divas.... and they chose the theme for the February challenge...................

We're celebrating a little-known February Holiday...

Umbrella Day

Sheesh! Of course it's little-known.............. this is FEBRUARY!

And then to celebrate, Darlene's region has received more snowfall than I can even imagine.

So, tell me............ am I the only one who thinks that's a tad bit funny?

Darlene's kit isn't funny though. It's fabulous! She sent the Dazzlers:

Image/Sentimets: Penny Black April Showers
Designer Papers: ???
Gemstones: Paper Studio
Flowers: Paper Studio
Brads: Paper Studio
Assorted Ribbons: from her local craft store

Thank you , Darlene and LJ for a FUN theme! And thank you, Darlene, for the GREAT kit!

Here's my card:

Here's the inside of my card:

Please be sure and stop by all of the other Dueling Darling blogs to see what they've made. You'll find links in my left side bar.

The only thing I added to Darlene's kit to make this card is cardstock - Recollections Black and Stampin' UP! Perfect Plum

Super cute and fun! Love the patterned papers and that big flower. Yep, that's funny about the umbrella and Darlene and all that snow! I really don't think the umbrella would help with all that snow falls around her. Very pretty card Jeanette.
