Dueling Darlings - January

Hello Everyone!    I cannot believe it is already time to duel with the Dueling Darlings from SCS.  Since being down with the ugly cold virus, it seems the first half of this month was a blur! 

My Glittah Sistah Carol, sent out the most adorable kit to us for this duel.  It was themed 'angels'.   As soon as I took a peek at the image, it instantly reminded me of our cute neighbor, Grace.  She had a haircut like that when she was smaller.

As with all children, they grow up so fast.  She went from cute haircut girl, to TEN years old today.  Whhhhaaaatt?!  We went from watching Nemo, to iMessaging! 

She was hard to come by for her parents, from giving IVF trigger shots {That was a nightmare! You probably should not have asked me. I was a poor choice!} and such, she has always been wanted.  She has been a little angel, so I created this card to give her on her birthday.

Grace, was over last night showing us her talent show routine that was to audition today.  She was singing a song from Pitch Perfect.  The pitch was not perfect and that made it perfect!  I love that she still calls DH Pooh Bear.  If she was to say his real name, it would be weird!  Can we just stop her at ten years old?

Please be sure and see what our dueling angels created this month.....their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Holy smokes, will you just look at that?!!! Beautiful, gorgeous paper and paired with that image and your coloring - well - simply wonderful! Those flowers are the perfect touch too.

Grace does sound angelic and yes, maybe you should try to just keep her 10 years old!

Tami I love the embellishment on the halo! The panels of DP with the pearls between is equally as awesome. Great card. Grace sounds like a great young lady.
