Tutti Fruity

NOTE: I have two blog posts today, this one and the {PIN}Spirational Challenge one that follows it, so be sure to keep scrolling. You won't want to miss the fun at the challenge!

...Dueling Darlings...

After taking a couple of months off for a break, the Dueling Darlings are ready to duel again. YAY! And we have some new duelers who have joined us, too... Welcome Tracie, Shelly, and Suzy!!!

Kelly and I are the hostesses this time - so we put our heads together and came up with the theme...

Tutti Fruity

Here's what was in the kit that I sent to the Dazzlers:

Stamps  (Recollections 110# White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black ink)
Image – Penny Black “Hedgy Gift”
Sentiment – Riley “Apples Are Dangerous”

Designer Paper
DCWV My Sunshine Stack

Darice Rhinestones
Hobby Lobby Decorative Trim Ribbon
Hobby Lobby Natural Hemp Cord
Recollections Apple Brads
Sew-ology Apple Button
Spare Parts Apple Shank Button
Paper Clip from an unknown vendor

Here's the card I made:

Here's the inside:

We also are giving the Dueling Darlings a little challenge... we've asked them to share a favorite fruity recipe on their blog posts.

Hmmm... I guess one of my favorites is "Snickering Apple Salad."

8 ounce of Cool Whip (thawed)
small box of instant pudding (Vanilla or White Chocolate)
4 – 6 Snickers candy bars (chopped into bite size pieces)
4 – 6 Apples (chopped into bite size pieces)

Mix together and refrigerate until chilled. 
Keep in cooler at the picnic until time to serve.

NOTE: This recipe does NOT include milk!

Be sure to check out what the other Dueling Darlings created - both the Divas (with Kelly's kit) and the Dazzlers (with my kit). You can find links to their blogs in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used on my card that wasn't in the kit was the Recollections Black Cardstock and Stampin' UP! Green Galore Cardstock.

Look at this beauty! You have knocked the challenge out of the park with this cutie! Such an amazing coloring of the hedgie friends, sharing some apple goodness! What a cute layout, card design - and I'm LOLing that we did apples, of all the fruits in the tutti fruity spectrum ♥

What a yummy sounding dessert! Anything with fruit is good in my book :)

So thrilled to back dueling again and your card is an amazing start to the Fall apple goodness!

Outstanding! I think your card is awesome Jeanette--you do the layers and the diagonals so perfect! Love that! And, the inside of the card just cracks me up.

It looks like such a fun kit that you sent to your team--can't wait to see all of the creations!

Yummy recipe too!
