Just A Note

Just a note to say hello!   That is what I was looking to do.  I need a card to say hello to a friend and went to see if I had any image fitting this criteria.

I found this cute House Mouse image, that I received in an image swap some time ago.  Who remembers 37 cent stamps {the amount on the image stamps}?  Wasn't that like so 2002?!

I ended up with some pretty cute images from some of those swaps long ago.  The only downer on this one, is that the paper was really thin and a bit of a challenge to work with.  For the life of me, those pearls are straight and then they move a smidgen downward!  Like the glue is pliable.  Ugh.  It is making me pearl crazy!

I used some DP scraps from my scrap bin.  Grandma paper!!!!!  For anyone who does not know, Grandma paper is DP that looks like it could be wallpaper in a Grandma's house.   Maybe not a hip Grandma, but a quintessential I am sweet and will bake you a pie kinda Grandma.  I just love me some Grandma paper!

Okay, off of card making mode and into gotta go get my tires rotated mode.   I know, my priorities are skewed!  LOL

Have a great weekend~

Dueling Darlings - March

Hello everyone!   I hope that you are all having a good week.   The Dueling Darlings from SCS are ready to post for the March duel.

LJ, was our hostess this month.  She sent a great kit.  It was filled with hot air balloon images, sentiments and great papers.   Thank you, LJ!

This past week has been extremely busy.  The best part of the kit was that the images were all ready die cut.  No fussy cutting for this girl!   I literally threw this card together.   I so wanted to use the grandma paper, but did not have the time I thought I needed to work with it and the image(s).

I cannot wait to see what everyone has created.  Hey, maybe someone used the grandma paper.   I love me some grandma paper!  You can look too - the blog links are on the right sidebar.

Dueling Darlings - February

Hello everyone!   I hope that you had a great Valentine's Day.  This week was a busy one for me, thus I am a few days tardy in posting my card for this round of the Dueling Darlings on SCS....sorry!  

Suzy, was our hostess this month.  We received the cutest image by Stampin' UP!.  The kit contained everything within theme.  I tried to use as much of the kit as possible.  Thank you, Suzy!

While this card did not get created in time for Valentine's Day, it is an image that can be used throughout the year - my kinda image!

Well, I am off to visit the other Darlings to see what they created.  You can too - their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Have a great weekend!

Wishing You Well

Now that our Dueling Darlings from SCS have dueled and posted, I get to have a treat!   Terry and I are partners in the duel and we gift each other a kit from our respective duel.

What a fun image to work with, that Terry sent the Dazzlers this round!  The image would go with just about any DP.  The wishing well was so cute. I just love how the hearts are the 'stones' of the well.  I dug out my Copic Markers, as I have not used them in ages.

There was a great sentiment included in my kit, but I created one on the computer, so I could have a get well card on hand.

Thanks again, Terry!

Dueling Darlings - January

Welcome to the Dueling Darlings of SCS's first post of 2017!   We are back after a short holiday hiatus.  The Dazzlers and Divas are ready to share the love!

Terry and I were the hostesses this month.  We wanted to go with a simple theme, to create a card that everyone could use.  No special challenges, just plain ol' card makin'!

The Divas kit included an image from Riley and Company.  The image Heart Balloon Riley is just a cute guy on this card.

The hearts made me think of the group Heart .  Then of course the song Barracuda.  Oh come on, you know you sang 'oooohhhh barracuda'.  It was one of my first records when I was under ten years old!  Remember, I have the older brother - oh, and I am the good child.   Yet another song we ripped around the house singing.  

I also love me a good cover.  This version of Gretchen Wilson - yes the country singer - with Alice In Chains and Nancy Wilson rocks!

Please stop and see what the other girls have created this round - I can't wait to see what the created with their kits!  Their blog links are on the right side bar

Dueling Darlings - November

Our last Dueling Darlings kit for 2016 was gifted to me from our sparkling, Carol!   There are so many things to be thankful for and this kit represents thankfulness so well.  Thank you, Carol.

I am glad to be caught up with the rest of the group.  My goal in 2017, is to stay that way!  I am thankful for all of the girls in the SCS group.  They are the best and make me giggle often.

If you have not had time to view the November cards from the Dueling Darlings, their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Go and have some fun.

Have a great 2017!

Dueling Darlings - October

No, we are not turning back time!   It is right after Christmas.  I am just now posting my October DDD card!  I am still behind.  I still have one more to go.  I still have my running shoes on.  I still hope to be caught up soon!

Kadie, we love Kadie.  I am going to miss her in our group!   She sent the cutest kit for October.   I will admit it is a little different coloring pumpkins at Christmas time, but hey it is like Christmas in July but reversed!  Thank you for a great kit, Kadie.

I am looking forward to visiting the other DDD's to see what they created - I know it has been a long time!  I did not want any design to influence me and it is fun to see what everyone used! If you have not already peeked, then do so yourself as the DDD's blog links are on the right sidebar.

Thanks, for stopping by!
