Double card day = Riley and the DDD :)

Hi friends!  I have two cards to share with you today - my 2nd Riley and Co sneak peek and the Dueling Darlings so if you are stopping by for either, you are in the right place :)

First up, the sneak peeks continue at Riley and Company where 35 fabulous new Funny Bones stamps are about to hit the store!  Exciting!  For my card today, I used the new Funny Bones stamp "Seeing a spider" and paired it with Miss Muppet Sophie ~ eek is what I'd say!  Luckily, this little spider is as cute as can be!

Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Riley and Co DT to see what sneaks they have for you today!

And in case you wanted to play along, you still have time to enter your cards in the biweekly Riley and Company Challenge at the blog. The challenge this week is to use Sophie on your card, keyword 1413.

Also, just as a reminder, the Riley and Company blog hop will be at 10 PM EST on Thursday, July 18th!  Hope to see you there!!


Next up, it's the 15th of the month and that means the Dueling Darlings post our cards created from the kit sent to us by the monthly hostess.  This month, our hostess is the fabulous Barb!  Her kit was absolutely delicious and she was so generous with the gorgeous supplies ... I can easily make another 2 cards with her kit!  

Using the image she sent to us, I colored it up with my prismacolor markers and used the brightest, boldest and most fabulous papers of the kit ~ love these fun, summery colors!  She sent us the Whipper Snapper Ice Cream bear image to color along with a plethora of ribbons and embellishements, it was really hard to chose!  I used a scrap of one of the front papers to add a little to the inside of the card.  I supplied the cardstock for this kit and used the In colors:  Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit ... exactly what color is Summer Starfruit? I love it!  I can't tell if it's a yellow or a green or a little bit of both! 

I hope you get the chance to stop by the rest of the Dueling Darlings blogs and see what they made with this card kit!  
You can find them in my sidebar :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  13. Kelly--first your Riley card is adorable--and so true.........

    And, your DDD card is too cute. I love how you used so much of the kit. I really like the layers of the ribbon at the bottom and I love the inside of your card. AND--great use of buttons!

    Thanks for the awesome creation that month--and keep eating ice cream!

  14. I love both of your wonderful cards! I have to say that the sentiment of the first card is so very true!! Of course, if all spiders were as cute as this one it wouldn't be so bad...
    Your ice cream bear is adorable and I love the awesome green fringed flower!

    Isn't summer starfruit the coolest color? Initially I hated it, but it looks wonderful paired with other colors! Kind of morphs with the surrounding colors...

  15. Oh Kelly this is fabulous - love the Riley card - it really made me smile as there is nothing worse than a White Tail spider getting away (they have a toxic nip)!!
    Love the Duelling Darlings card too - so glad we are now half way through winter!

  16. Both cards are adorable!! Your ice cream card makes me want a big bowl of it....and the spider...oh, so not a fan of spiders so I completely relate to that sentiment! LOL!!

  17. The Riley card made me giggle, love the sentiment on that one! Adorably colored!
