Dueling Darlings - January

It's a new year and the start of the Dueling Darlings from SCS posting the 15th of each month. Happy New Year!  We have some new members in the Dueling Darlings group, joining the girls you have seen each month.  Be sure to check my blog side bar to visit their creations.  Should be a lot of fun!

LJ was the hostess for the Divas this month.  Our theme was to take a provided calendar image and add our own stamp to it, to make a 'new year' theme.  Thank you for the kit, LJ.

Well, I took it literally!  I had a new year stamp that I had never inked up, so I dug around my bin to find it.  It is one of those $1 - well, I think they are like a $1.50 now {inflation!}, stamps at Michaels, by Studio G.  It also gave me a chance to open that Stickles bottle I have had for years and never used!


2017 was a very long and heartbreaking year for me losing my dad.  I am looking forward to 2018 being a better year.  I hope it is for you all as well.

~ Happy New Year!

Loving your "new" additions, Tami. It's always great to use up some of the things you bought and hadn't used. I have a lot of that! Love that sparkly champagne bucket. Great card!

Oh I just love using stamps that have not seen ink yet! I love your champagne bucket, and really love the gold stickles you added to it. Such a pretty group of DP for an elegant card!!!

Wow look at you go Tami...my sweet friend. I love that you used a stamp that hadn't seen ink but I really love the use of the stickles...(hee hee). I bet you didn't see that coming. You did a wonderful job on the kit and making so much use of it. I know this year has been a struggle for you and am hoping that 2018 brings you the best of everything. Big hugs to you!!!

Hi sweetie. What a wonderful card, great job showcasing those gorgeous papers from the kit. Stickles, huh? Carol approves (and so do I). I was trying to find champagne glasses or a bottle image but came up with nothing, so went to Plan B. I like your better LOL
Here's to 2018 & better months ahead.
Peace my friend!
