Dueling Darling Divas December Card--My Favorite Things

Here is card #4 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 My Favorite Things.  The hostess this month is Laura Jean, who sent us these great supplies!   Isn't this a cute image?!  Thanks LJ for making it easy to make such a cute card.  She also asked us to write in our post some of our favorite things--so here goes:  my hazelnut latte made at home every morning, snowshoeing in fluffy new snow, the Christmas Season, making my friends laugh, my flower gardens--especially lupins and lilies, a glass of wine with a great meal, and of course my family, roomie and SCS friends! That's enough for my list.....................

Image—Inky Antics Sliding Sweetie, Warm and Cozy

Cardstock—GKD White, Lipstick Red, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black and Red

Accessories—Sizzix Basic Grey Frost, Copics,White Ribbon, Rhinestones, Silver Snowflake Brad

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.
