Dueling Darlings - February

Hey, hello!    I know I am tardy to the party, but I was able to take a bit of time and create a card for the SCS Dueling Darlings.   We had a post date of February 15th.  Well, that is about right - I am running a few weeks behind!

Thank you to our great hostess Kadie, for waiting so long.  She sent an adorable Disney themed kit for us to create with.  

My first Disneyland experience was when we drove to Disneyland when I was a small child.  I just HAD to take my crayons, in my dad's lunchbox {what you did not want me to use a ziplock and not a cool, black lunchbox with latches did you?} and they all melted.  I think I had a meltdown because if it.  I remember that and my mom screamed like a banshee on the teacup ride for cripe sake!  I think it was our last 'road trip' vacation!  My poor dad.

My second Disneyland experience, which with what little I remember from the first, was my actually really my first experience.  We had a sales contest at work and a group of us were able to go to Disneyland for the week.  We were fortunate that our Director took his kids there a few times per year and knew the park layout.   We hit all the great rides and had so much fun eating $23 corndogs!  My friend's husband had his wisdom teeth pulled right before we left.  We just kept giving him pain meds and took him on rides.  I know, nice friends!  There was another girl from our region and she drank too much, smoked a cigar and fell back in her chair at the bar one night.  Her dress flew over her head and we laughed until we had to give our friend even more pain meds.  That one was a drinker, she was!  .....I have pictures.....

Our challenge was to use a heart on our card.  Kadie was sweet and gave us a little heart brad.  I used it with the super fun to glue on word 'smile'.  As in smile your finger is glued to the page holding the word down.  I am so out of card creating practice!  Oh and I put some layers on the interior and a cute little die cut in the kit of Micky's ears.

I am excited to now be able to go see what the other girls created.  I made myself wait until I created my card.   I am sure the are spectacular.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Have a great day!

Oh Tami... I do love your card. It is adorable and all things Disney! But even more than that, I loved reading your post! You can tell a story better than anyone I know. You have me in giggles.

Tami--what a cute card and a perfect way to use the heart. Your stories just crack me up and I did laugh out loud! and I thought the song "It's a small world after all" playing over and over on the rides is bad--but I can just hear the mom yelling at her kids in the teacup next to me!
