Dueling Darlings - January

Welcome to the Dueling Darlings of SCS's first post of 2017!   We are back after a short holiday hiatus.  The Dazzlers and Divas are ready to share the love!

Terry and I were the hostesses this month.  We wanted to go with a simple theme, to create a card that everyone could use.  No special challenges, just plain ol' card makin'!

The Divas kit included an image from Riley and Company.  The image Heart Balloon Riley is just a cute guy on this card.

The hearts made me think of the group Heart .  Then of course the song Barracuda.  Oh come on, you know you sang 'oooohhhh barracuda'.  It was one of my first records when I was under ten years old!  Remember, I have the older brother - oh, and I am the good child.   Yet another song we ripped around the house singing.  

I also love me a good cover.  This version of Gretchen Wilson - yes the country singer - with Alice In Chains and Nancy Wilson rocks!

Please stop and see what the other girls have created this round - I can't wait to see what the created with their kits!  Their blog links are on the right side bar

Well, my friend...you ATTACKED this duel just like a Barracuda!! Love me some Heart, used to see them all the time in the PNW before and after they got really famous. Anyway - back to your gorgeous card.

Love Riley's little blush on his cheeks and that blinged-out heart balloon. Carol approves. All of your embellishments are perfect!
