Dueling Darling Divas June Card---The Great Outdoors

Here is my card (and a 2ndsurprise card further down on the post) for round #11 of our very friendly duel.

The theme this month is “The Great Outdoors”. I am the hostess this month, along with Michelle, the Dazzlers’ hostess. As in all past duels, there is a twist as well as a request for a story…… First the story—we are to share an experience about the Great Outdoors: In 1986, I drove my mom and dad out west to visit some relatives. We visited Glacier and Yellowstone Parks as well as the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, the Corn Palace, etc. It was a wonderful trip and the last vacation we all had together. We did not camp, but stayed in hotels as well as with relatives. It was a fun road trip as we shopped for food and had picnics often along the way.

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Anna Wright Great Outdoors, Bo Bunny Roughin’ It

Paper—SU Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi; Gina K White, Bo Bunny Roughin’It Paper

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—On the Road Again Twill, Green button with yellow ribbon, Yellow and brown brads, Copics

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas created and then you can read below about the link to take you to see what the Dazzlers have fashioned!

Barb:You are here!

But, here is the twist—Michelle and I also traded packets, so I also made a card with the items the Dazzler’s received. And, we were so close to having the same image as I too have this stamp and thought about using it—how funny that would have been!

Here is the card I made with the awesome supplies she sent:

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Roasting Mellos Bear, WS Anna Wright Great Outdoors

Paper—SU Chocolate Chip; Gina K Fresh Asparagus; Neenah Solar Crest White; Imaginisce Happy Camper Paper

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—American Crafts brown ribbon with jute tied above it, October Afternoon Campfire button with jute, Pinecone brads, Copics

AND--now for the Dazzlers: Please start at Jeanette's blog and enjoy the travels through the other blogs. I can't wait to see what Michelle has created with my kit.  Thanks for joining us!!!!!!

I hope you enjoy looking at our creations! Thanks for joining us!!!

Oh Barb! Your card is wonderful! The more I see that little camper, the more I appreciate it! (My aunt and uncle actually had one that looked similar to it.)

Your story of the trip with your parents sounds marvelous, too. I'm so glad you have that awesome memory!

And you tricky one........ trading kits with Michelle! How fun!!! I love the card you created with her kit, too! Very creative.

Of course, had YOU managed to send me MY kit, too, I could have posted two cards as well. Tee Hee!!! Thank you for being a good friend who always manages to take my teasing in stride! I ♥ you!!!

You have a pine cone brad! I am beginning to think you might have a thing for brad! It is too cute. Love the DP on Michelle's kit.

Your card is so cute. The layout really features the different DP's you used.

Road Trippin' with your parents sounds like a great trip. Glad you were able to do it.

Thanks again, for a great kit this month.
