DDD Swing Into Spring


Hi Friends,
It's that time again for the 15th of the month (did you get your taxes done?) and another round of Dueling Darlings.
This month our Diva hostess is Suzy and her partner for the Dazzlers is Terry A. They chose a Swing Into Spring theme!
Suzy provided us with an awesome kit, that includes this image from a retired SU stamp set called A Kind Word.

We were also asked to share if we had a favorite Spring dessert and mine is LEMON BARS. Yummmmmm. :)

Hope you enjoy all the Spring themed cards this month and be sure to visit all the Darlings below:

DDD Man's Best Friend



Hi Friends!
Welcome to another round of Dueling Darlings!

This month Carol and Shelly chose a theme called "For the Dogs," and Carol sent us Divas a most FABulous kit to play with. There were so many fun papers to use that I just couldn't make up my mind and was inspired to create panels to play with them all.



We were also asked about our childhood pets and I had quite a few, but I will just share about the first one I remember to be my friend and that was Bandit the cat. My parents had both a cat and dog before I came along and they were not happy to share their parents with me, but Bandit came along after and was my cat. He was the sweetest and a good friend to wee little Kadie. :)

Thanks to Carol and Shelly for another fun duel and I hope you'll check out all of the creations from the Ladies' links below.

DDD Tutti Fruity


Hi Friends!
Welcome to another round of Dueling Darlings!

I know that you're expecting to see a little mouse on my card for today, but I just didn't feel right about working on my own kit until I had caught up on one very awesome kit that I hadn't yet had a chance to work on.
So, without further adieu, here is my card using Kelly's fun Tutti Fruity kit from (eeek) September.

Such a gorgeous kit and I loved every moment playing with it today. Thank you, Kelly for the goodies, for your patience and most of all for your sweet friendship!

I will be sure to post a little mousey card in the next day or two that goes with Paola and my "Being a Kid at Heart" theme for February. And I wanted to thank the Divas (and Dazzlers too) for their awesome cards today using the Feb kits. MUAH!

DDD Get Well Soon


Hi Friends!
I know it has been eons since I've posted anything, but the time has come!!
It's time for another round of the Dueling Darlings and it was just what I needed to get my mojo going.

This month's hostesses are Barb (for the Divas) and Tracie (for the Dazzlers) and they chose a SOUP---GET WELL theme.

Barb sent us Divas the most BEAUTIFUL kit! I love love the Stampin' Up paper that she sent and all the embellishments were super yummy too. And I can't forget the main attraction; the Whipper Snapper Chicken Soup stamp!
Thank you, Barb!

We also were asked to share our favorite soup. I must admit that I am not a big soup fan. But I do have a couple that I will eat on a day that I'm needing to feel warm and toasty inside. Tomato soup (with grilled cheese), chicken tortilla soup (with corn bread) and taco soup (atop tortilla chips). Yum!

Be sure to check out all the awesome cards from the rest of the DDD! See you next month :)

Falling Into New Friendships

Hi Friends!

It's hard to believe I've been away for so long, I almost forgot how to post :) Forgive me though, life got in the way and crafting was set on the way back burner.

I'm back today with another round for our Dueling Darlings group! But first I must apologize to our Dear Diva leader, Kelly, and all the Darlings for missing last month's round! I'm still working on that card. xoxo

Judy and Debbie came up with a really fun theme this month to incorporate both the change of seasons and celebrate the arrival of our new Darlings, Suzi, Tracie and Shelly--Falling Into New Friendships.

Judy sent us a real smorgasbord of papers and embellishments. Such great items to play with and TONS to choose from (thanks, Judy)!!

For my card I decided to take the die cuts and create a bookmark. I used clear poly "cardstock" (which is transparency paper from the office supply store) to create a pocket for the bookmark. This allows all of the great patterned paper to continue to show through and gives the allusion that the tree is among it's dsp friends :)



Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit all the other Divas and Dazzlers!! (see links on side bar)

Thank You, Sheri!



Hi Friends!
Today we have a very special post for The Pink Elephant. As some of you may have read, last week was Sheri Gilson's last post over at TPE. Sheri has dedicated her time and talent each Monday for the last 6 years and has inspired so many with her awesome creations and kind and thoughtful comments on all participant creations.

We wanted to make sure Sheri knew how much she means to all of us and give her a huge, huge THANK YOU!!

A few of us have cased one of Sheri's amazing creations. I could never, ever do her original card justice (see below), but I did my own simple style version (above) using stamp from PTI and papers from K&Company.

If you'd like to join us this week in creating thank you cards and submitting them to the TPE Blog, please do! We will consider all of your creations a tribute to Sheri!
