Dueling Darlings - June

Hello!   Or shall I say, "Boo"?!

It is time to Dueling Darlings Dazzler and Divas on SCS to post their June card kits.   The 15th is the posting date each month.  Kind of a nice break in mid-month!

Terry and I have a new month to host this year, June.  So, it is Halloween in June!   They do Christmas in July, so why not?!

You know I use what'cha got.   I have a stamp set from Red Rubber Designs and we all had used the girl in the set prior, so the boy stamp it is!  I did a serious 'go through' of my DP to come up with paper for the kits.   I made sure that there was the same DP in each kit for a few sheets, and the rest was coordinating.  The embellies were a Hail Mary from the drawers!

Now I do understand that I do not have time to create cards as much as I would like too and that affects how many supplies I use, but holy night I still have so much stuff!  It is a great challenge to add the extra element of maybe not having the perfect 'thing' to put on your card, but it makes me feel good to put what I have to use.  I mean I liked it enough to buy it so why not use it- or was gifted it from a kit, so that kinda is new - or new to me!

Okay, so I had to listen to this while I created - I mean it is Halloween!  I actually have all the KC & the Sunshine Band hits on my playlist.  I listen to it often.  It reminds me of when I was really little and my parents listen to it.  ....Shake Shake Shake was the front runner to drive my mom crazy, because you know we were not supposed to say booty, so we would sing "shake, shake, shake your" then we would point at her saying nothing that was perfectly timed for the word booty.  Or we would pop out from behind things and say, "I'm your Boogie Man".  Remember, I am the good child.

I cannot wait to see what the girls created this month.  You too can take a peek via the blog links to on the right side bar.

Happy Halloween!
