It's the 15th of the month, and that means it is time for the Dueling Darlings : ) This month, Jeanette and Kelly are the hostesses, and they chose the theme, 'Christmas in July'
I had a blast coloring this sweet image- I used Copic markers and the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday. The die for the main panel is Gina Marie.
Jeanettes Kit contained:
Recollections 110# white CS
Sugar Pea- Merry Makers (Image and sentiment)
DP- Recollections= Christmas Noel Paper Pad
Recollections brads- can =you see the timy red brads on his shoe tips?
I thought I'd create another : )
I saw this technique on Stamp TV today, and had to try it...... I used SU cardstock Real Red. I placed 1/4" Score tape every 1/2". I used Red Deco Foil. How fun. This sweet card looks better IRL, The button & Washi tape were also in the kit.
What gets us going in the Christmas mood? I think a couple of things- of course, the tree- once it is up and the lights go on, we turn on Christmas Music and that gets you going! I like it when one of the kids, at least one, is home : ) And the second- the religious dinners with motivational speakers- cause I really like to keep Christ in Christmas : )
The Dueling Darlings are a group on Splitcoaststampers. We are divided up into the Divas and the ***Dazzlers***. Each group receives a kit, and we all create with a like theme. Then, we hop to each others blogs to see what everyone has created. The links are on my sidebar- stop on by and see how the other ladies interpreted the theme : )
Thanks for stopping by!
