Dueling Darlings - August

The 'friends are the family we choose for ourselves' duel has begun for August.  The girls from the Dueling Darlings on SCS are back with some friendly fun!

Carol, was our hostess for this month.  She did something that I love....use what'cha got!   Our kits were created from Carol's stash. They were so full of fun things.   I was able to make two of this card and not even dent the kit!  Thank you, Carol.

So, I have an interior photo for you this time.   Little known fact...I do not like to photograph the insides of cards...they always fall and are a pain to I don't!  I for sure line and layer each card and decorate some, just do not photograph them!

I am so fortunate to have some really great friends!  I have thought of many of them during this challenge.

The Eye Batter had a birthday this week, so I called and wished her a great day and asked if she remembered when she drove her dad's car through a store front in downtown Portland {no one was hurt}. Clean up in aisle three....  It was a sad day, we really had a lot of fun in that Honda and it could not be repaired at that point!  We were good kids, just did a bunch of fun things.  Here we are years later and her 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree' son who has done some hair raising things, just made the Dean's List at his college.   All is good in the hood!

Hope you have some great friend memories too!

Oh Tami, I love your posts and I love what you did with this kit. Your card is amazing. Just perfect both inside and out. I love the stories about you good does sound like you really had some fun times. (If you use a flower frog and set your card on it to photograph they shouldn't fall over...I finally broke down and purchased one at Michaels just for this purpose...) Great job my sweet friend...♥♥♥

Awesome card, Tami! I came late to the party but so worth the effort! You created a dynamite card using so many elements from the kit in a very creative way. Love the use of ribbon and fibers on the panels and the great coloring and cutting of the "best friends"! The inside is fantastic too with that fun sentiment. Thanks for sharing stories of you and your BFF... Perfect accompaniment to this card. So grateful for the friendship we share as DDDs!!!
