Swing into Spring :-)


It's just me - swinging by with the Dueling Darling post today :) 
 It's the 15th of the month, the day we (the Divas -vs- the Dazzlers)
 post our cards with 1 theme, 2 hostesses! 
 Suzy and Terry are 2 of our newest group members
came up with a wonderful card kit theme:  Swing into Spring!

It's already HOT here.
really hot.
Like summer hot!

We missed spring.
We also missed winter.
And fall.

So, I'm glad for a 'paper' spring!
And I'm glad for Suzy's kit ♥

The papers are so vibrant and lush and gorgeous!
I drooled over the paper at Michaels but didn't buy it
so this was a wonderful surprise!
Everything on my card came from Suzy's kit,
except the card stock and little button
 (it was calling out for one *wink!*) 
I still have to try again with this image so she doesn't 
look like she is floating in air.
 I did go with a different sentiment on the inside of the card,
one I had in my stash :)
There was enough paper left over for another card(s),
and I'll use the wonderful flower stencil and paper flowers another time :) 

Thank you, Suzy and Terry, for a wonderfully fun month!

They also asked us to share our favorite dessert that
we like to make in the Spring :)
We love them ALL!
But a few days ago, my youngest daughter and I made
some wonderfully yummy vegetarian cupcakes 
with beautiful pink, yellow, green and blue springy flowers piped onto them.
They were so pretty!
I can't find the picture I took, but I'll keep looking :)

Meanwhile, please stop in and see what the rest of the Dueling Darlings
have created this month -
you can find them all in my sidebar :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
