♥ Let Me Call You Sweetheart ♥


Hello Friends and Bloggers....
Yeahhh! It's THAT time of the month again! :o)
Each month, on the 15th day to be exact, we Dueling Dazzlers 'battle' with the Dueling Divas
to compare ideas, learn new tecniques, and creating DARLING cards together .
If you're new to my blog and like to read more details about what it's all about, please check the link here provided :o)

This month our wonderful dueling hostesses were Debbie (for us Dazzlers) and Carol (for the Divas) They provided both groups with a love themed challenge and kits to boot ♥
Debbie's kit was full of wonderful stuff and embellies plus two choices of images...and this is what I created with my selected  image. Sentiment was provided too....but I remembered
about it only AFTER I already stamped the inside of my card....yikes...:/
 I decided to go out of my comfort zone a wee bit and make my card somewhat masculine,
and kept it more simple ,so that it would serve a dual purpose and  gave it
to my darling hubby on Valentine's Day -without too much frilliness or mushiness...
(the latter is usually my style) LOL
Kit from DebBie:
Everything to make this card (unless specified) and so much, much more!     ♥ THANK YOU DEB!! ♥
 I added the following:
Grey C/S for the base, dimentionals (raised image)
Ink:Real Red,Soft Sky,Baja Breeze; SU markers
Tecnique:distressing,piecing,sponging


Hope you like my contribution for this month's *DDD Club* 
I'd love it if you could leave a sign of your visit...I sooo appreciate hearing from you and reading all of your comments...*wink & smile & thanks*
*~*♥Blessings to all of you♥*~*

So cute, Paola! I love what you did with the image, and your die cut turned out beautiful. I do have to admit, I ripped mine when I was trying to add it to the layout. Love how you used the embellishments.

Great job!
