Hello everyone ♥
I am one day late for the Dueling Darlings reveal...(still 11:11pm in BC/Canada!) lol
If you want to know more what Dueling Darlings are all about, you may check it here:
For the month of September, the challenge was to use a collection of all kits received since last January! ♥ This genial idea came from our delightful dazzling Debbie
(aka lil dj in SCS world)
The dish: Know how we do our kits each month and we have LEFT OVERS? Each and every one of us probably didn't use every single thing in the kit, every single time!
The recipe: KEEP your extra items! That's right! From this month on, when you complete the Dueling Darlings cards, anything you DON'T use, keep it in a SAFE PLACE 6 months from now, after all the duels from all the divas and dazzlers have passed us by and September rolls around, that is what you will use! From the papers, to the ribbons, to the buttons to the all of left over, that will be your kit!
The Sit Down: The final result will be a collection all things not used, recycling at it's best! When you get ready to sit down and play with your paper and beyond, it will be from all the kits - or some of the kits - that you've gotten and will reuse for the September challenge .
of goodies left for creating more cards in the future...
♥ Thank YOU Dazzlers! ♥
For my card, I remembered the 'strips' concept from another past DDD challenge of last year, and wanted to somewhat repeat it ...see link below :
This time though, I placed the designer papers strips vertically, using a total of 16 strips, two from each Dazzlers, thus formatting a colorful background, like a friendship 'blanket' to keep close to the heart to remind us what is important in life...♥
The wider grosgrain ribbon was leftover from April's kit and the dark pink grosgrain was from Debbie's kit. The pretty white flower was from Jeanette's kit and I added a few beads leftover from my own kit as well as the large pink flower petals. The front sentiment was cut out from Michelle's Irish's prayer from last March and propped up with dimentionals. A few more verses from same prayer are found on the inside of the card, as well as one of Debbie's sentiment at the bottom, which goes very well since this card is all based on lil piece from all of us ...
I hope you enjoyed my heartful interpreation of this FUN challenge...
God Bless Ya All...and now on to click the publish button
