Late, but not Too Late


As you might recall, last Tuesday I had "technical" issues - a.k.a. I'm computer-challenged/illiterate. So, I was unable to create a card for the {PIN}Spirational Challenge. But not to despair. Deanne, the owner of {PIN}Spirational Challenges helped me figure out how to fix my problem (well, that problem, anyway). THANK YOU, Deanne!

That being said.............. hurry over to {PIN}Spirational Challenges and check out the details so you can play along, too.

Happy Birthday Duel


Today being the 15th, it is time to get our "duel" on! What does that mean? The Dueling Darlings (a fun group) is going to show what we've made for this month's duel.

Each month a Diva and a Dazzler serve as the hostesses and they choose a theme. Then they each send kits to their respective group.

This month Dazzler Deb and Diva Judy chose this theme...

BIRTHDAYS


Deb sent an amazing kit! Here's what was in it:

DP - American Crafts, Confetti - Banana Cream Brady and Peanut Butter Benny.
Images - Whippersnappers "Little Girl and Dotted Present" and
                Stampin Up! "Birthday Whimsey" (cake)
Sentiment - A Muse "Itty Bitty Birthday"

Images and sentiment stamped in Memento Ink black and cocoa

Button - SU!
Ribbons - SU! Rose, crushed curry, orange, bermuda bay



THANK YOU, Deb!


Here's the card I made:
