Dueling Darlings ~ Are you Game?! :)


Hello dear blogging friends!  I've missed crafting and visiting!  With lil man's school starting back up full swing and the girls being on the go-go-go with their last week of Summer, there hasn't been much time to craft and blog/hop!

First up .......  It's the Dueling Darlings back with another card kit creation and this month, the hostess for the Divas was .......... me! :)  I had so much fun putting this card kit together!!  Our theme for this card kit was "Are you Game?"
Here's the card front - I'm Game!

A wee side view :)

The card inside - I continued the theme here, too!

A Close up of the Diva Challenge ~ my snow shimmered glittered Flourish wooden die!
Now, gaming can be anything from sports to board games to just plain 'o takin' a risk!  So for this card kit, I thought it would be fun to bring back playing cards - Whipper Snapper style!  I fell in love with this WS image (okay, ALL the WS images!!  tee hee!) and added them to the card kit filled with papers with red, black, yellow hues.  I'm in love with the papers I found to match the image - Graphic 45's kraft paper "all decked out" (I think that was my fave part of the kit!)  I also added to cache of embellishments and ribbons including the challenge I put forth for the Divas:  Use their wooden die cut flourish in various shapes from the deck of cards and "be game" to craft it in a creative way!  I added some snow glitter from MS to mine for some added bling.  I'm actually really thrilled with how this card turned out ~ inside and out! :)    Be sure to stop in and see what the other Divas created with this identical card kit and then stop in and see what the Dazzlers were "game enough" to create with their card kits!  You can find them on my sidebar right off the side!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  

Big hugs,

Bigger Blessings!

  12. WOW! Kelly, you gave us an awesome kit and you've created an awesome card!! Love how you used so many dsp patterns on this card in such a creative way, especially the angled panels both inside and out. Love the way you used the ribbon both insides and out too, especially layering the black bow with the prima flower and the wood "club". Your image and sentiment are terrific. Everything is bright, beautiful and fun! Love it!!! Thanks, dear friend!!!!

  13. Where to start! Oh, the card candy. They are just adorable. You are so not needing to buy a thing when you can create like you have!

    I cannot believe how many of the DP's you were able to pull together for your card! You rock that kind of stuff. Your card is perfect. Love the glitter on the wood charm. Great idea!

    Thanks, for an awesome kit this month and being our hostess.

  16. Kelly, I'm in the same boat... My girls started back to school this week (a freshman and a senior...yikes). I'm behind with everything! I think I've wasted more time thinking about when they were little girls and needed me... than anything else this week!
