DDD: April Showers/May Flowers!

It's Monday!  
And in every sense of the word it was a Monday ~
Just one of those days when it doesn't seem much goes right :*(
 But I shouldn't say that ~  I mean, poor Monday ..
 what did Monday do! 

Let's start over!
It's the 15th of the month,
which means it's posting day for the Dueling Darlings!
I'm literally just under the wire here as I just made my card.
The kit took a detour getting to my house and I was scrambling today.
Judy and Deb were our hostesses 
and their theme is "April Showers/May flowers".
Judy sent us a fantastic kit filled with bright colored papers, images, etc.
It just burst with cheerfulness!

One of my wonderful blogging friends, Lynn, has a terrific segment
on her blog called 10 minute Monday. 
Her cards inspire me!
She gives herself 10 minutes to make a card,
then makes another card with 10 extra minutes.
Brilliant concept :)
So I 'did like Lynn' and set my iphone timer for 10 minutes,
pulled out the kit and had to have the entire card done in that time.
And I did it!

Judy's kit for us Divas is an absolute delight!
Be sure topeek at the Divas and Dazzlers 
and see what they made with this amazing theme this month.
You can find them in my sidebar

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
