Girl's Day Out

Hi Friends!
Happy 15th of April!
Today isn't just about taxes, it's also about the Dueling Darlings! On the 15th of every month it's the Divas versus the Dazzlers, as we take on a friendly duel of creativity in which each group gets the same theme but different supplies.

This month my Dazzling partner, April and I decided on Girl's Day Out/Girl's Night Out. I sent the Divas a kit filled with goodies from MFT, Crate Paper & Bo Bunny, Prima and PTI. I can't wait to see what all the ladies came up with for our day-to-night themes!

We also asked the ladies to share a little bit about one of their Besties and what they like to do when they get together. Well, my long time dear friend lives in Siberia...yes, for real! We became friends in college and then after graduation, we BOTH went to Siberia for a year and then she and her husband decided to make it their home. So, with that said, I don't get to see her very often, but when I do, it's always a great time of laughs and reminiscing and picking right back where we left off.

And I also just happen to get to collaborate duels with one of card Besties! Even though April and I have yet to meet in person (it's in the works :), I consider her a close friend and am so blessed that our paths crossed. She is one of the sweetest people I know and she has a great sense of humor too---she always knows how to make me laugh. I love that lady SO MUCH!

Hope you have fun hoppin along and checking out today's Duel!
Kadie (me)

Thank you so much, for the great kit. I really enjoyed working with it!

I so wanna color like you when I grow up! You make me want that gray skirt!!! LOL

I like how you varied the colors and were able to use so many of the papers on your card.

Not too many can say their BFF is in Siberia, but I think if you asked April, she might think she was there this winter too! ;)
