The Duel is on! Here we are again. Back with some luv for ya! The Dueling Darlings are working with some pretty cute stuff this month. Carol, is our hostess. The kit she provided had so many cute things!
Topping off the list is that our image is from Mo Manning! In case the cyber police are out there, Carol did obtain permission to gift us the images. Since the theme is all about luv, we have the image Young Love.
I had all of these seemingly great ideas on what to do with this one. My end result is totally different than I had envisioned! I swear I am always a Nestie layer too short. What is up with that?! Also lately my images have been too large for the Nesties that I have. For Pete's sake! My coloring went in a whole different direction too....oh well.
I am sure that you are tired of hearing me say this, but really it is mostly to reinforce the idea to myself, I am looking through my stash to see what I have for each project and what would possibly work, before any new purchases. I did the same for this duel. I promptly found a stamp that I had mounted and never inked from Stampin' UP! to use for the sentiment. Are you ready for this? Yep, circa 2003! Holy night!!! That's EIGHT years ago. I used the Fun Phrases sentiment Husband, Wife...Happy Life! on the interior of the card. What a blast from the past!
I did use one extra embellishment that was not included in the kit (pink flower), but thought about it and I actually received it prior from...Carol, I think! So, I thought that would kit count for sure!!! Speaking of Carol, do you know her? Yes, she is the one that hand made ribbon flowers for our kit - 'just made them up' she said! Like I could even do that. I had to hoard them. Here is my luv card:
Our extra portion of the challenge is to share if we are doing anything special for Valentine's Day. DH and I were kinda the boring couple this year. He had to travel out of town. I will say that I am a way happy camper with the THREE boxes of Sweehearts he brought me yesterday morning. I never eat them, so should be pretty much in a sugar coma by this evening. They are so wrong, but so right. Oh and no knock-off Sweethearts. They just don't taste the same. They have to be the Necco ones! I know, there is a good chance there is something wrong with me! LOL
Please check in on the other Dueling Darlings. Their creations will be posted to their blogs as well. Their blog links are on the right sidebar.
Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!
