Yes! It's that time again!!!! It's Dueling time. Bring it on!
Little Ms. Debbie is the Dazzler's hostess this month and I adore the kits she sent!
Yes! I said "kits"! She sent two. It was hard to choose but this is what I created...
I embossed the the rust card stock she sent with my SU! square lattice folder. Then, distressed and inked it.
The K & Company paper is adorable! I distressed, inked and sanded that.
The little Kraftin Kimmie airplane stamped image was colored with copics then cut out and mounted atop a Natural white SU! piece of punched card stock. That's what my card base is also. I followed that with a matching piece at the bottom for my sentiment (using SU! Petite Pairs).
My favorite part of this card is my button "treatment". :) I used a MFT hot fudge button, cut a piece of the green ribbon and linen thread Debbie sent and made, what I think is a cute accent.
Thank you Debbie!
Debbie and Carol (the hostess for the Divas, our dueling team) asked us to share a memory of getting to our favorite holiday. An adventure you might say.
Well, the one that popped into my mind immediately when I saw this was a few years ago when North Alabama experienced a large amount of snow on Christmas Eve and Day. There were lots of roads closed and iced over. In my mind, we were going to have a relaxed Christmas at home and visit family at a later date. My husband however had other plans. He said "I've never not been at my Mom's at Christmas and this snow and ice is not going to keep me from doing so this year!" He was on a mission! So, we bundled the kiddos up, loaded them and the presents in the car and headed out. A trip that usually takes us 50 minutes, took us over 2 hours! We have to cross a very long, 4 lane bridge on the way that is quite elevated. It was super scary to say the least. Of course we made it and had a wonderful time with family, but I will never forget the "adventure" we had to take to do so.
Until next time...
