It's a Spring Time Duel!

Hello!  Busy day on my blog today, so if you are looking for my Cottage Cutz card post, it's HERE! :)


For Riley and Company's new challenge card, it's HERE! :)


And it's the 15th of the month and that means it's time for another friendly duel between the Divas and the Dazzlers!  The Dueling Darlings are a group of friends from SCS that send card kits to each member of the group with just a theme - it's always a surprise to us until it arrives!  The opposing team sends a kit to their members and this month, the hostess for the Divas is Judy!  She sent us one of the most scrumptious kits evah!  It was just bursting with Spring time goodness and so much fun to look through all the wonderful papers and embellishments :)  You might remember I made a COF card with this image that she sent but it was fun to color it up again and create a card using Judy's fabulous papers!  She adores butterflies and it was evident to see so much of her tastes all through-out this kit :)  Thanks, Judy!  I hope I did it justice!!


Here's my card:



Look at this ribbon!!  It's luscious!!

We were also asked to post what we love about the Month of May :)  If you've known me for awhile, you'll see my answer has always been the same and I post it everywhere :)  I absolutely LOVE having my babies home for the summer.  I miss them so much when they are at school and it's just bliss to have them near me and home!  We have so much fun when we are together and I've been dubbed 'the fun mom' by every one of their friends so I suspect they enjoy it as much as I do :)
And Tuesday's also mean it's time for another challenge at the

This week, Melina asked us to create a card:  long and tall 
  and the twist:  Make a chain!

I added the felt flower chain that Judy sent in the kit as my twist to my card
and inadvertently made the card 5.5 x 5.5 before I remembered the long and tall - ooopsie!  Remember if you upload your cards, follow the link to the blog and you may use the keyword 2TC7!

Be sure to stop by and see what the other Divas and Dazzlers have created using this wonderful vision of Spring!  You can find them listed in my
sidebar :)  

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
