Feel the LOVE ♥

 ~♥~  Hello wonderful Peeps,
here we are once again to celebrate the monthly friendly Darlings' duel between the Dazzlers and the Divas. This month's hostesses are , respectively, Debbie and Barb and both challenged their group with continuing the (Valentine) love for one more day...hence 'Feel The Love' theme.

Debbie sent a great kit to all of us Dazzlers , and I truly enjoyed fully exploring many possibilities on how to use it. She stamped the wonderful sentiment seen here , in several colors. I chose the one in a brown shade, a tad subtle perhaps, but love its final combo paired up  
with red and sky blue mix.

 The above is the inside of the card with just enough space for a hand 
written note , reflecting the doily heart shape in front of card.

The  distressed flowers were made using designer paper from the kit with the addition 
of the lil roses (from the kit) inside -the white mini rose was dabbed with same 
blue ink as the sponging around the sentiment-
Also  lrg white brad and the lrg brown velvety brad inside mini shabby paper roses.
Debbie kit included the following:
Stamp Sentiment - company unknown , Ribbons from Stampin' Up , Doily - Wilton cake decorating

Flowers - Joann's , Lg white brad/brown brad - Stampin' Up , Heart brads -Her stash

Plaid DP - Hot Off the Press - Christmas Plaid , Heart DP - Hot Off the Press - Lots of Love
"Love" DP - me & My Big Ideas
   " This month we are honoring each of our founders, Jeanette and Kelly.  (They are getting a different set of details, without this part).  So—please use the theme Feel the Love to show your love to your leader or to both of them if you wish.  You can tell of some of the things you “love” about them or point out some of the things you know they love—books, family, God, coloring, etc. "

There is LOTS to be said about our DAZZLING gal Jeanette....but the best part is already said in the sentiment of this card : She IS patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle....yet , SOMETIME....
her 'self-control' switch becomes faulty...ask BARB why!! *J* couldn't resist it! ♥
 ♥ Love you muchly dear friend!
 More dazzling loving thoughts about our leader Jeanette here:

I really like the sentiment in a circle die cut with the scalloped layer. Those roses you created are just perfect. I like how they look a wee bit shabby chic. Great job!!!

Super sweet card creation, Sweet P! I love the blue shading, what a wonderful touch and a pop of color against the red! This is a beauty! Wonderous DDD creation, as always! ♥

Hi Sweet P! Wow! Another gorgeous card with so many lovely, unique elements! I love the whole design inside and out. I love how you chose the more subtle stamped image and enhanced it with blue shading, die cut and mounted on chocolate brown scalloped die cut. Love the heart shaped doily die cut tucked beneath the sentiment panel and the lovely created paper flower enhanced with the kit flowers and brads!!
Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts on Jeanette. So right on! Hugs!
