Dueling Darlings - July

It is time for the Dueling Darlings from SCS to post for July.   It is Christmas in July.   Has the panic set in yet?  It did for me!!!!  We are half way there.

We were asked to share the first thing we do to get into the Christmas spirit.   To be honest, things have been so busy with parents these past few years, we have not been the best on decorating.  We will work on that one.

Kelly, sent us the cutest image to work with this month.  The DP was that great pink for Christmas type of paper.  You know, the non traditional colors.   I really like them and I am not so much a of a pink girl!

I certainly like the little pink house that Snoopy has in this card.  I added a bit of sparkle with Stickles, to keep him festive.  It was a fun kit to work with. Thank you, Kelly.




You know it made me think of this song...Pink Houses.  I had a girlfriend who was smitten with John Mellencamp back when he was a 'Cougar Mellencamp' {remember he changed his last name}!  I especially like his high kicks while dancing in the field of this video!

Mr. Cougar Mellencamp just creates a lot of questions, like why did you change your name, why did you name one of your children Speck, why do I know that you named one of your children Speck, who are Jack and Diane, why do Jack and Diane suck on chili dogs outside a Tastee Freeze and has anyone ever seen a pair of Bobby Brooks jeans?  I mean I did a Google search and this is what came up....really?  I am thinking these are not what Jack had in mind!


Please be sure to visit the entire group of Dueling Darlings to see their creations this round.  The blog links are located on the right sidebar.

Have a great day!

OOps! Tami, we did not mean to cause a panic in your world when we chose the theme. Honest, we didn't!

I love your card - the sparkle is a GREAT way to make it even better!
