DD2 ~ Women of Strength


Hi friends!

Welcome to 3 am!

It's just me - finishing a card at this 

(as my mother always loves to say)

ungodly hour!

My ENTIRE LIFE I've never heard another person say that!

But, yep ... it's 3 am and

 I. just. now. finished. a. card.

So, today is reveal day for the Dueling Darlings 2!

Normally, we'd have 2 teams 'dueling' with ONE theme,

TWO different card kits!

This month, Jeanette graciously volunteered to send out ALL the kits!

Thank you, Jeanette!

It was a lifesaver more than you can ever know,

and knowing your OWN plate was full, I thank you extra!!

This month's theme:

Women of Strength

The image is from the adorable Hello Bluebird "Frosty Mornings"

and I've used a few of the papers, gems she sent as well.

I did use my own die to create a frame and my own copic markers

to color - the rest was the kit!

And I still have a lot left to make several more cards :)

Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the DD2 has created ..

here are the blogs

and the link to Lorraine's gallery on SCS.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty hugs,



  1. Kelly, I am sorry you were up at the ungodly hour of 3:00 am making this card... but oh what a sweetly adorable card it is. (I'd be cross-eyed and nothing would look right if I tried making a card at that hour.) I love that die you used for the background. It perfectly grounds the image! Thank you for your kind words for me, too.... you are so sweet!

  2. I too sometime finish cards (or comments) at that impossible hour :( Your card is adorable, love the cute girls and your design!

  3. Gorgeous card and obviously time well spent. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh Kelly we run in the same circles for sure. I've been known to craft
    In the wee hours of the morning as well as during a blackout by flashlight. I love your card both inside and out. The layout is over the top awesome.

  5. Fabulous card, and I love the sentiment with it. I should say I can't believe you would be up at 3 a.m. making a card, but I can trust that it was so.

  6. Hi Kelly a lovely card, I love the friends and their coffee image. A super design and colours, Kate x
