Dueling Darling Divas October--Treasured Friend

Here is card #3 for our Battle!

What are the Dueling Darlings?  We are a group of friends that met on SCS, travel in each other's swaps and have taken a new twist on crafting to "duel"!

We, the Dueling Darling Divas, have one image/card kit to work with and the other half, the Dueling Darling Dazzlers, have a different image/card kit with the same theme! The object is to see what we came up with using this theme, what stamp was picked and how the divas/dazzlers created with it!

The theme this month is Treasured Friends.  The hostess this month is Carol, who sent us these great supplies!   There was a twist this month—you had to use a treasured recycled item on the card.  So, my mystery item is the blue binder clip that the ribbon is tied around. (just so you know--this clip is not a treasured item-I missed that part when I got the info-I read recycled and obviously skippd the treasured part--oh well)

Image— Whipper Snapper Ike & Mike go Fishin'

Cardstock—SU Night of Navy, Shimmery White, DSP that Carol sent

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—Nesties, Copics, Smooch Iridscent--on noses, White-Lt Blue-Navy Silver Edged Ribbon, Rhinestones-large & small, Scalloped edge punch, Snowflake/Brad, Blue Binder Clip.

Now make sure to stop by to see the other Divas ladies and then your final stop will be a link to take you to see what the Dazzlers created!  We are a big group of 14, so this might take awhile ~ and this is just a friendly joust ~ no winners, certainly no losers! Just a craftin', loveable group of friends taking on a monthly joust at card making!

Barb:  You are Here!

AND--now for the DUEL! Please start here, at Jeanette's blog which will bring you to the 7 Dazzlers' creations.

I hope you enjoy looking at our cards this month!  Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!



Oh my goodness Barb, the sheer fabulousness of our cheery card just made me smile huge! This is beyond adorable! Your layout and coloring are, as always, spot on! I love the contrast of the navy with the white and the perfect balance of the embellies Carol sent us - wasn't it hard to chose?! OUTSTANDING! So happy to see you blogging, my friend! x0x0
