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)

There you are! And back with a WOW factor with this beauty! I was sure when you saw Judy's kit that you would just love it as we did - and this is a beauty to behold. I love how you got so much of the kit onto your card ♥

I can't wait to see what you'll do with Tutti Fruity, too! I'm sure it will be wonderful!

Glad we were able to "fall" into friendship! Blessings! ♥

Fantastic card, Kadie! You always come up with unique, eye-catching designs and this one is spectacular! Love, love, love how you used the tree and leaf diecuts along with ribblon and sequins to create this awesome book mark!! The stitching on the tree dsp panel, the cut out and rhinestone embellished "Friends" and the twine embellished buttons are terrific details for this autumn spectacular card!!

So very blessed to have you for a friend, Kadie! LOVE YOU!!!
