The new CCL is Snow Much Fun

When Kelly started the Dueling Darlings over 10 years ago, I was super excited to be a part of the group... fast forward to last August when we celebrated 10 years of dueling! What an accomplishment! That is just incredible!!! I admire Kelly - she's the best! - so creative and kindness oozes out of her very being! Thanks for letting me join the journey, my friend! I've enjoyed being your side-kick.

Now, as I promised in the November Dueling Darling post here on my blog... there are some changes. Exciting changes! 

First, we have a new name. We are now Classy Card Ladies, but still two groups - the Diamonds (led by Kelly) and the Pearls (led by me).

We also are a bit smaller in size - saying good-bye was hard - but we are mighty!

Speaking of mighty... I'm mighty glad to share with you that Kelly and I are kicking it off this month (our first duel as Classy Card Ladies) with a fun theme...

Winter Fun

Kelly sent kits to the Diamonds and I sent kits to the Pearls.

Here's what was in my kits...

Image/Sentiment: CC Designs Snowballed Heidi and CTMH Flakey Friends stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Accent Opaque 120# White CS

Designer Papers: from the Recollections Fa La La paper pad

Ribbon/Twine: AMuse Studio, JoAnn's, Offray, and Target

Embellishments: Eyelet Outlet Rhinestones, Hobby Lobby Sequins, JoAnn's Wooden Snowflake, and a Charm and Snowflake brad from my stash

Okay, on to my card...

Be sure to check out the other Classy Card Ladies cards, too...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used in addition to what was in the kit was some CS (SU Rococo Rose) and the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Die

Oh Jeanette I love your card. I lpve the kit you sent the Pearls. Your card is perfect. I am so impressed with your clever use of the bakers twine and embellishments on the top of the image panel. This is amazing Jeanette. I am so glad we are in this group together. The best part is that you are my friend. ♥
