Dueling Darling 2 - August2022

The 15th of each month is such a special day here on my blog - it's Dueling day.

Not to worry; no blood is drawn in the duel. Well, unless someone punctures themselves with a paper piercer gets a deep paper cut or some other such hazard of this hobby we love. This is actually a friendly harmless duel. That's why we are called Dueling Darlings 2.

Not sure what that is? It's a concept that my friend Kelly came up with over a decade ago - two groups, two hostesses, one theme, and lots of fun. The hostesses choose the theme and then each hostess sends a theme-appropriate kit to the other members on her team. 

Each person creates a card and keeps it all a secret until the 15th, which is posting day.

Barb and Lorraine are this month's hostesses. They came up with a great idea for their theme... 


Lorraine told her team: Crafting is my hobby, relaxation and escape all rolled into one! While stamping is my first love, I also like to make deco mesh ribbon wreaths and repurpose and decorate various containers (coffee tins, Starbucks bottles, oatmeal containers, etc.)

Lorraine is definitely creative!!!

I'm on Lorraine's team so I received her kit, which is absolutely awesome! THANKS Lorraine!

This is what was in Lorraine's kit:

Images/Sentiments: Gina K Designs "Craft Notes" stamp set

Designer Papers: from Doodlebug Design Inc.

Ribbons: from Celebrate It and Offray

Embellishments: from Queen & Company as well as her stash

Now, let's duel...

Be sure to check out all of the Dueling Darling 2 cards:




Jeanette - that's me


Lorraine - SCS Gallery



Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only things I used other than what was in Lorraine's kit was some CS for my cardbase (SU Parakeet Party) and my MFT Stitched Rectangles dies.
