Dueling Darlings


It is the 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For our July Challenge, Suzy and Deb are the hostesses! They decided on the theme-Christmas in July! Deb is one of the Dazzlers and Suzy is a Diva, like me, and we are all Dueling Darlings!  And, we have been doing this since August of 2010--a long time!

Suzy sent us this sweet older Stampin' Up image called Christmas Lodge.  She included two sentiments--the second one is on the inside of my card.  She also sent us some pretty Christmas patterned paper along with a variety of fun embellishments. This was fun card to make.


Here is the inside of my card:





I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. We will be here in July, so be sure to check back!  Kelly and Jeanette, our leaders, are the hostesses for August!

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team and Debby who is a Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!

Christmas in July

This is my second post today. To see my Three Musketeers card, please scroll down.


This is the 26th week of A Card a Week Challenge. One card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month. July is Christmas in July--make a Christmas Card.  Every Tuesday I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge. This is my second Christmas card for July!

I really like the font in this image from Gina K Designs.  I paired it with some fun Christmas patterned paper!

I really like the look of this card and hope you do too.  


Here is the inside of my card:


I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  Christmas In July will continue all month--so be sure to check back to see some Christmas cards!

It is time for another The Three Musketeers post. We are ready to showcase the card we all created with the image that Kelly sent for July-for Card #59!  That means we nearing the end of year #5--can you believe that?!  All three of us sure have enjoyed the challenges every month and we hope that it continues for a long time!  Jeanette will be up next for the August challenge.  Be sure to come back to see what we create!  


For our card this month, Kelly sent us this image that is a "bit large" as she noted--like it almost fills the entire front of the card!  When she bought the stamp, a friend of hers said "That stamp IS the card!  Just have fun coloring it."  I did!  The states are pastel shades, there is a light blue camper, being pulled by a Pink Cadillac!  Kelly said that July is often a month of traveling and vacations, so our image this round reflects that.  I hope you enjoy my card and your summer of fun trips!



Here is the inside of my card, with some fitting washi tape:

Glittery Background for One + Twelve


This is my One Plus Twelve, month 7!  This is the brainchild of Kelly and she asked Jeanette and me to join her in this challenge. We are to use just one stamp, to make a card every month--but we may add a sentiment if we want!  One Stamp/Twelve Months-here we go into our sixth month of one plus 12--we are half way through!  We are to post on the 3rd of each month, reflecting the three of us and our three challenges we currently do together--3 Musketeers, our first challenge along with Ready, Set Go and now this one! 

As a mentioned for my first card in January,  I picked my favorite Stampin Up set--Lovely as a Tree.  It is now retired and it does make me a bit sad.........  For my challenge this month, I used a new to me item--Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel.  I love it!  I used another new to me item--Taylored Expressions Mosaic Leaves stencil.  I love the glitter and glimmer on the background!



Please be sure to check out the other One plus Twelve cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog. I am sure you will enjoy checking out what stamp set is picked and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! We will be back each month, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd of August.
