I know it has a been quite a furlough for me as far as card making goes. But I have 3 Dueling Darlings cards to show you today! (I apologize in advance for the bad pics, it appears there's a smudge on the lense of my camera)
The first is for this month's Olympic theme, hosted by Judy and Debbie. Judy sent us an amazing kit filled with so many options--I think I can make a couple more cards with it!
I loved that Judy included the Olympic rings in her kit, so I couldn't resist using and making them the focal point of the front of the card. Then I colored up the super cute Scrappin Doodles image, Go for the Gold and included her inside the card.
We were also asked to share if we have a favorite event in the Summer Olympics. I think ever since I was little I've loved watching the gymnastic competition. I can remember being so captivated by the USA team in the 90's -- the magnificent seven!
The next card is from Kelly and Jeanette's Christmas in July DDD challenge. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Kelly sent us Snoopy. My son just celebrated his 2nd birthday and he had a Snoopy party, so this stamp was so fun to color up! And she sent us one of my all time favorite patterned papers, so I was in heaven! :)
Kelly and Jeanette asked us to share what the first thing is that we do each year to get in the Spirit of Christmas. For me, it's pulling out my Christmas cd's. I love Christmas music! In fact, each year I get a new Christmas cd. Nothing like Christmas music to get your mojo going to make Christmas cards!
My third catch-up DDD card is for LJ and Darlene's June theme of PETS. What a FUN FUN kit!! I loved the image and the colors SO MUCH! What a blast to get to play with the awesome kit that LJ sent (and I'm sorry it took me so long!).
Thanks for stopping by to see my cards and thanks to the lovely hostesses for their patience!
