Dueling Darlings - March

Round two - late.  Sorry!!!   Here I am though, with my card for the Dueling Darlings on SCS.  Our great group of girls have created some dog gone fun this month.

Carol, was our hostess.   She sent the most adorable papers and images to choose from.   I saw the little dog that I used on my card and laughed.  His little face!  Of course I have deemed him a boy.

Since the largest dog show is in the month of March, I had to share a great video that I watched earlier this month and tucked away in my mind for my post. Our friends have a dog that looks just like this one and I had to ask why she doesn't do this when we play AC DC!

Carol asked us to share if we had a pet growing up and what their name was.   I had a great Siamese cat named Su-Ling.  She was awesome.  I used her as my baby doll.  Really, I did.  I dressed her in a human onsie and would put her in the basket of my bike and we would roll out to play. She looked best in the yellow terrycloth, with the cute collar and snaps onsie.  We took her tree climbing, on the swing set, down the slide and I even tried to take her into 7-Eleven to get a Slupree once.   She was the best pet ever!

Here is my card for the duel.  Now I can go and check out the rest of the girl's cards - so excited!  You can see them too. The blog links are on the right sidebar.

Have a great day!

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!
