AUGUST duel





Hello Blogland Friends ♥
I am finally posting the dueling card for the month of August and yeahhh.....with this I am actually now all caught up! ( Posted my July's duel card right on the 15th of this month though! lol)
This month's hostesses are Carol (for the Divas)  and Melina for us Dazzlers. They came up with a GREAT theme....
                         here it is in Melina's own words :

" Friends are the Family You Pick Yourself
We are so happy to call you all our friends. 
We've been dueling for 4 years now!
My image, the mouse and turtle, just went right along with the theme I thought. Friends of a different kind helping each other out! We darlings are all different but it works! I'm so glad it does!



KIT CONTENTS:
Image: Whimsy Stamps "I Will Carry You"
Paper: Recollections & Sassafras
Ribbon: Michael's
Buttons: My Favorite Things
Pearls and Brads: from my stash
Pair of dry embossed clouds

** I only added SU card stock (Barely Banana, plus white and blue c/s from my remnants c/s stash), the inside sentiment and dimentionals to pop up the cute immie which was colored with Copics and SU markers **






On the inside of my card I added this sweet sentiment from 
Art Impressions. 
I thought that it goes so well with the sweet image 
that Melina sent.





 I love the pair of clouds included in the kit and , just for a wee twist, used the opposite embossed side 
 on my card...

Thank YOU Melina for such 
a fun kit to use...
I hope I did it justice ;o) 

Until next time....



♥ BLESSINGS TO ALL♥
