Dueling Darlings - December

It's a December duel!  The Dueling Darlings on SCS are spreading some Christmas cheer - join us!

Barb, was the hostess for this month.  She was also the Swapper of the Month on SCS.   Congratulations, Barb! 

If you know Barb, you know that she loves Whipper Snapper stamps.   Of course our image was from Whipper Snapper {Downhill Snowman}.  Isn't he just cute?!

Our kit was chalk full of great papers and embellishments.  We were actually very spoiled.  Thank you, Barb!

 
 


Another portion of our challenge was to share a little 'Winter Travel' story.   Okay, so during high school and after at our local mountain ski resort there would be an annual party called Pray for Snow.  Everyone went to PFS.  It was the biggest party ever!  Oh the things that happened there - it was like Las Vegas - what happens at PFS stayed at PFS!  The mountain is about an hour drive away.  It was like the city moved to the mountain.  There were people in campers, motor homes, trailers, ATV's, anything you could think of.  The PFS parties really kind of got out of control over the years and have since died down and have become more sanctioned events.   Probably for the good, but were a fun winter memory!  Oh, were we supposed to tell a nice family story.....LOL  :)

Please be sure to visit the other Dueling Darlings blogs to see what they created.  Their blog listings are located on the right side bar.  While you are cruising the blogs you may want to listen to this song by Bush, Sound of Winter. I really like it.

Do take time to chase the snowflakes!

Tami, your card is darling! (No Pun Intended)

I love the way you colored the image and the layout is perfect! Just way too cute!!!

I also thought the tale of PFS was interesting. I had no idea such things exist.

I'm so glad you Duel with us every month!

I love this layout! Will have to case it. Great color choices and perfect placement of the embellishments. I love the small ribbon across the corner of the sentiment, really sets it off.
