International Day of Happiness

It's the 15th of March so it's time for a little Duel - Dueling Darling style. This month Dazzler Terry L. (I'm a Dazzler) and Diva Tami are the hosts, which means they put their heads together and came up with a theme, then parted ways and created theme-appropriate kits to send to their respective team members.

Terry told the Dazzlers that March 20th is the International Day of Happiness so she and Tami brainstormed about things that make people happy. They concluded that Coffee makes a lot of people happy so the March theme is...


Terry's kit included the following items:

DP: hand stamped by Terry using Concord & 9th's Coffee Blend Turnabout stamp set nd the flowing colors Dark Chocolate, Warm Cocoa, Warm Glow Amalgam, Chocolate Truffle Amalgam, Tomato Soup, and Turquoise Sea

Papers to Match: Gina K Tomato Soup and Turquoise Sea

Embossed CS: SU Close to Cocoa using Sizzix Alterations Embossing Folder

Coffee Cup Die Cuts: Concord & 9th Coffee Blend Dies

Sentiments: Hero Arts (August 2018 monthly kit)

Enamel Dots: The Paper Studio and Eyelet Outlet

Ribbon: Michaels

Thanks for putting together such a fun kit, Terry!

Here's my card:

Here's the inside of my card:

In addition to our cards, Terry and Tami asked us to share something that makes us happy (besides coffee)... for me it's the people who are important to me - my husband and children and other family members and of course friends, like the Dueling Darlings!

Be sure to stop by all the Dueling Darling Blogs - you'll find links to both the Dazzlers and the Divas in my left side bar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I only used what was in Terry's kit to make my card - thanks Terry!

I love the retro feel I am getting with your card. As always you cut you paper on a unique angle. The inside is awesome too.
