Posting to my blog

I must confess to everyone, posting to my blog is like taking one step forward and ten steps back. It took me over two 1/2 hours to post the blog for our DDD, longer than it took me to create my card. One day, I will get blogging correctly, learn how to add links simply, without typing each one in. Maybe, if I set down and just work with it, it would get better. Anyway, it was fun.

Good morning, welcome to the second round of Dueling Darling Divas. We are a gorup of fantastic paper crafters and decided to put a new twist on crafting challenge the "DUEL". We the Darling Dueling Divas have one image/card kit to work with and our other "DUELERS", the Dueling Darling Dazzlers have another image kit to work. What makes this so much fun, we have selected the same theme, but different stamps which leads to loads of creativity.

The theme this month is "CUTE AND CUDDLY". This month, I selected one of my favorite stamps "Fly Away" by Penny Black. Who can resist such a cutle little boy, with baggy pants, big hat, holding his airplane, with his puppy rubbing his legs, waiting for you to hug him and his puppy.

Each one in our group was sent CS by Kiwi Embrodiery Paper, ribbon by Offray, white paper clip, jump rings, brads and buttons by Paper Trey.

Let the Games begin.

I decided to do an easel card, and it was so much fun. I hope you like it

Please visit and enjoy the rest of the Dueling Darling Divas and then start with Ranger to see the great cards by the Dueling Darling Dazzlers.

Recipe Swap Card

I made this for a Recipe swap, mind you I do not LIKE to cook, but I really liked doing this swap and finding a recipe, which I actually tried and loved it.
