It is the 15thof the month and that means we get to show off another Dueling Darlings challenge. Kadie and April are the Darlings who came up with the challenge and theme for the teams this month.  Kadie is a Divas and April is one of the Dazzlers.
 
These are the details that Kadie sentThe Diva's them is Girl's Day Out and the Dazzler's get Girl's Night Out.  Who doesn't like to spend some much needed quality time with her Besties!?  In addition to making your card, we would love for you to also share who your longest friend(s) and perhaps your favorite thing to do with that person.

I really like all of the papers that Kadie sent to match this cute image.  There were many papers related to shopping!  There were also some awesome sentiments along with sweet embellishments to go with the image and papers! 

Here is the inside of my card:

Fisherman and Shortage of Poles


Here is a card that I created from a kit I received in February from Carol.  This project is a "card of the month kit" that was just started by Jeanette on SCS. Each month, one of the ladies will receive a kit from each of the other participants.  There are 11 of us in the group, so each person will get 10 different card kits the month they are "up"!  Well--I was up first--for February.  We get all of the kits by the end of the month and then we have the next two months to create a card.  So--I have until the end of April to make and post all of the rest of the kits.  I have three more to go!

Carol sent two images for me to chose from and I went with this cute Whipper Snapper image.  There were many, many embellishments and some great papers to use too.  I loved everything in this kit!  I even added some silver glitter pen to the fish--as Carol loves glitter!  Too bad it does not show up better.




Here is the inside of my card with the wonderful sentiment!

Unidentified is Revealed


This is the card for the 12th round of the Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we are to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--that is today!   The images for this round were provided Darlene.    She will swap the cards and include the next image that Kadie, our next hostess, provides in our return envie.  And then we get to do it all again!!!! 

The image and sentiments the Darlene picked out just crack me up.  There are so many people in my life that I know I can send this card to!

Here is the inside of my card:
 


If you check some of the other blogs listed on my sidebars, you may find some other swappers who have posted their creations today or in the next few days.

Snoopy!


This card is for Tamara's Pets swap on SCS.  I love this paper and did not want to cover up much of the design, so I went with a smaller Snoopy image.  Though the ribbon is quite wide, I thought it was perfect for this card!
