Dueling Darlings - October

It's duel time!   How great is that?!   Well, I have been on the catch up as of late.  So, I went Monday to the mail to pick up my waiting ever so long kit that Judy sent.   Much to my surprise....no kit.  Lost in the mail.  Sheesh!  I feel so bad that Judy went to all that work and it is lost!

I did have the email with the details of the kits from, Judy.   I went ahead a made a card with her theme, thus my card is different than the other Divas, I hope you don't mind.

I do not have any Halloween stamps, so off to my trusty digital files.  I found this cute Witch Peeker image from Bugaboo.  I decided to use her.   I colored her up and used Spicas to highlight her.  While I love the finished look using Spicas, they sure are a bear to try to photograph!  I need an app for that!  LOL

I used a computer generated sentiment and get this...washi tape!  Yep, me.   I put the washi tape around the sentiment and then punched it out.   I am usually so washi inept!

Judy, asked us to share our thoughts on Halloween.   We try to have some friends over for dinner, which is always chili, and hand out candy.  We then go out and walk the neighborhood.  It is so good to see everyone and the costumes. The neighbors are all strolling around with a warm drink and chatting.  It is really fun! 

Please be sure to check out the other Dueling Darlings, to see what their kits contained.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Happy Getting Ready for Halloween!

Oh Tami! This is an absolute gem! What a precious image, makes me smile! I love all the bright fun colors on your card and the whimsical style - out of the park, baby!

I'm so sorry you didn't get a kit this month! But way to grab the reigns and create, thinking outside the box - You get the YOU GO GIRL award!

So blessed to have you as a DDD sistah! ♥ you!

Tami, you are certainly resourceful! Not having a kit and not having any Halloween stamps.... and you still made a beautiful card! Love everything about it!

I also loved reading about your Halloween tradition of dinner guests and chilling and strolling, etc.

What a cute card Tami! Bummer that you didn't get your kit, but you put together a great card with what you had!

Hi Tami! I'm so very sorry you didn't receive my DDD kit! And so far it hasn't returned to me. Hopefully, you'll get it someday. I love the card you created on your own. The background paper you used is very similar to one of the dsp in the kit. And that image is just adorable!! I can imagine it looks even better IRL with the spica coloring. Terrific sentiment panel with washi tape.
Thanks for sharing your Halloween celebration. Chili...Yum!
