Happy Dueling Darlings Day! :)

It's the 15th of the month - and that means the Dueling Darlings are back for another friendly duel!  This month our hostess for the Divas is LJ!  She sent a super darling veggie themed kit with a theme of Garden of Friendship!  (Can I get an AMEN!)   Friendships are one of the greatest GIFTS He has given to us and I treasure the friends I've made off and online - like all of you!   

My card is pretty simple :)  I am still packing and scrambling and having an absolute wonderful (and exhausting!) time with my niece and nephew - we are getting ready to roll out on vacy so I do hope you'll stop back by even while I'm gone - lots of sneak peeks heading your way!! :)

Here's Flopsey!!  LJ sent us a smorgasboard of yummy embellishments and cute patterned paper ~ I love veggies, and a trip to the farmer's market for me is a rare but wonderous treat!  And I have about as far away from a green thumb as you can image - I think even plastic flowers are in danger in my house!  My dad was the most amazing person with plants and planting - wish I had inherited just a small fraction of that gene.   But at least I can grow this card!  LOL!!

Here's the inside verse: 

Be sure to check out the rest of the Diva cards!
