10 Years of Dueling - Let's Party

Woo Hoo!!! There's a PARTY going on! The Dueling Darlings are celebrating! This group was formed 10 years ago - the FABULOUS idea of my friend Kelly! I am so glad that she invited me to be part of this amazing group 10 years ago. THANK YOU, Kelly!!!

We've actually been celebrating all month in the Dueling Darling thread on SCS - with party games, trivia, and more! 

Normally each month the Dueling Darling, which is two teams, has two challenge leaders who choose a theme and send kits to their respective team members, but this month Kelly did it all! And for a bit of fun, she randomly placed us on one of the teams. So those who are always Divas or Dazzlers may still be... or they may not. If I understand correctly, Kelly doesn't even know which of us are on which teams.

The kit Kelly sent the Divas was full of lots and lots of embellishments - ribbons, buttons, enamel dots (CC Designs), twine, sequins, etc. The image/sentiments we received were from the Cat's Pajamas Forget About the Cake stamp set. The designer papers were from Photo Play and Simple Stories. It was an amazing kit! Thank you, Kelly!!!

Be sure to check out all of the Dueling Darling cards - you'll find links in my left side bar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used to make my card other than what Kelly included in the kit was some CS for the base (SU Blueberry Bushel) and two dies: MFT Wonky Stitch Rectangle and Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Stitch


  1. Oh my goodness. This is a fantastic anniversary card.
