Dueling Darlings love the "Little Things" :)

Happy SONday!  It's the 15th of the month, and that means the Dueling Darlings are back for a friendly duel - the Divas -vs- the Dazzlers with a card kit theme!  This month, our fabby hostess for the Divas was Miss Joan - who sent us a whopper of a kit that stretched my mind, creativity and at times, patience ;)  Don't get me wrong - I loved this kit :) It was unique, interesting, special in a way that made me really think way outside the box and that is what us crafters, artists, creators should do!  What an awesome learning experience this was :) 





She sent to us a card kit filled with stamped inchie images from Lockhart stamps - in a vegetable theme!  When I saw them on hangers - resembeling dresses - my mind went straight to a clothesline ;)  I added the twine 4,5 different ways and just ended up wrapping it haphazardly through the window panes in the gorgeous paper that she sent to us to use :)  I really loved the Country Fresh trading card that she sent but added it to the inside since I couldn't find a way to make it work on the front.   Hopefully the Divas and Dazzlers won't be too disappointed in my card this month - it gave me a run for the money, but my mind is wrapped around a million little things and my mojo (which is running low) will be back from the garden soon, LOL!!

As part of the challenge, Joan asked us to post the first thing we thought of when we heard the title "The Little Things" and what came to my mind was children!  I thought of all the small things my kids have said and done and I would always think let me write that down - I want to remember the little things! :)

Be sure to stop on over to see what each of the Darlings have created using their card kits :)  And Melina, hostess for the Dazzlers this month, will direct you to her card kit recipients :) I'll be back later to hook up the links *smile!*  It's currently 2:20 in the morning and I have to be up in a few hours for church - oh la la, another all'nighter!  LOL!!

Blessings to you - thanks for stopping by!
Big Hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  8. Kelly, your card is GORGEOUS!!! I must say, and please don't take this wrong, I think the inside of your card is the most gorgeous part of your card. WOW! It's almost a shame to hide it inside the card, but just think of the thrill the recipient will have when he/she opens it!

    Love the way you incorporated the items in Joan's kit and stepped outside your comfort zone to create a fabulous card! Way to go my Darling friend!!!

  9. Good Morning and Happy SONday to you too, dear friend! I had to stop by before heading to church and so glad I did. Your card is spectacular!! No one is going to be disappointed with this card...No way! Love how you used the papers, cut and colored those yummy images and arranged them on the twine clothes line. That was my thought too when I first saw the twine and the images. The inside of your card is just as awesomely designed as the outside. Really, really yummy!!!
