Dueling Darling Divas January-Three Little Things

We are starting another year of the Dueling Darlings and we are all ready for 2012!  Our hostess this month for the Divas is Joan and she sent us an interesting kit.  The theme that Melina, the hostess for the Dazzlers and Joan came up with is “The Little Things”. 

The required challenge is to select 3 images or sentiment on the face of the card.  Bonus challenge: Post on your blog, the first thought that hit your creative brain when you saw the Title “ The Little Things”

So, the card I created used two of the “interesting” images from Lockhart Stamps called  Corn & Green Beans and Tomato & Greens.  I added the sentiment as the third little thing on the front of my card.  You should have seen the other “dress” choices we had—like I mentioned already, they were interesting……......................

Joan also added this to our information:  I hope you like what I’ve sent for this challenge. I love small things, and The Lockhart Stamps is one of my favorite stamp companies. I totally fell in love with the images and they are so much fun to create wonderful cards. Take this journey of fun, creativity, and being the Divas that we are, you will shine.

So, what came to mind when I saw the title "Three Little Things"?  What did these two creative minds come up with?  Are we making a baby card for triplets?  Is Debbie really going to have quads? Just kidding....................  Yes, many thoughts went through my mind, and some I cannot put on my post.  I do like this images and the theme was fun to design a card around.  Thanks Ladies for a wonderful month!

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment— Lockhart Stamps Corn & Green Beans, Tomato & Greens, sentiments “Fresh from the Garden” and on the inside “Water, Weed, Wait”

Paper—SU Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery; October Afternoon Thrift Shop DSP

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—SU Daffodil Delight Ribbon with Green Ric-Rac on the top; Copics; Yellow, Green & Red Crystals, Metal Clip; 4 yellow brads on the inside

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. All of the blogs are on the left sidebar of my blog. I am sure you will enjoy looking at the “Three Little Things” cards.

Barb, I love how you used the multiple ribbons. I never thought to use the metal piece on them. It looks really good.

I like the multiple mattings and how they bring the colors out in the card. Great job!
