DDD: *Feel the Love!*

 
 
Hi friends! 
 I hope your Valentine's Day was the LOVEliest of days ♥



It's the 15th of the month which means the Dueling Darling group posts our
cards with a chosen theme. This month, our hostess for mailing out card kits was Barb and Deb - and as an added treat, both groups rec'd  the same sentiment to work with this round.  Thanks, Deb!  However, Barb sent us the card kits and oh me, oh my!  This kit was stuffed full of wonderment!  She included so many things in the kit,  I can easily make 3-4 more cards.  Thank you, Barb, for your generosity and for giving us so many things to play with. 
And Barb, btw,

So let me jump on in ... this is the first card I've made in a week!  It's been 'that kind of week!'  I love, love, LOVE being so involved in my kid's lives and being so active in volunteering at their schools.  Even though the hours add up, the meetings go long, the books to reshelf are stacked high (and so on and so forth!), I hold fast to my Year of Endurance!  I don't mind, really! They are little but just once ... the time flies by and before I know it, they'll be off!  So I absorb them, adore them, enjoy them! ♥  



My completed card with 4 dsp sheets, ribbon and buttons!
 


and the inside of my card - you know I couldn't forget that :)

 
For my card, I went with the dark pinks and tan dsp from Crate Paper - they jumped out at me the most.  I paired the striped pink paper with the lacey tans ~ and since Deb gave us this sentiment in several shades of ink, I chose the red to play off the colors of the dsp.  Some ribbon and a few buttons and voila!

The inside of my card is a continuation of the dsp, my border punch and minimal embellishment. 
Barb asked us to share where our card would be going and 'share the love' this month.  I am not quite sure where this one is going just yet, but have a pretty good idea ;)
 
Please be sure to stop by and see the other DDD girls and what they've created this month!   Thanks for your visit today!
 
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
