DDD: Bargain Hunters!

Hi friends!

It's the 15th of the month
and that means another duel between the Divas and the Dazzlers.
In a few months, the DDD card group will be 10 years old! ♥

Each month, there are 2 hostesses for each team with just one theme ~
and this month, it's Jeanette and I.
We came up with a theme of bargain hunters since we both like
thrift stores and shopping for bargains ♥

For my kit, I went with a "Hey Gnomie!" stamp and die.
I decided on this theme when I saw the Pink and Main huge clearance sale
as gnomes are e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e! 
I sent the divas a kit with stamped images and cut out ones to chose from.
I also included matching gnome designer paper from Photo Play
(clearance sale at Scrapbook.com) and  
mushroom ribbon and gnome brads from the clearance section at Eyelet Outlet.

So let's get started with my card!
I used the fun gnome designer paper for the top
and a striped for the bottom and seperated it with twine.
I decided not to use the gnome ribbon or brads - that will be another card later :)

And here's the inside ↓

And that's it for my huntin' bargains this month!
You can see the divas and the dazzlers cards 
at Splitcoaststampers in our card group called the Dueling Darlings!
There are too many blogs to list 
so be sure to check the gallery :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings!

  5. Kelly, yours is the first Diva card I've seen (by design I went to yours first since our theme was so wide open and I couldn't wait to see what you'd put together for your kit).
