Dueling Darlings

I am super excited, ecstatic, thrilled and positively giddy to join this cool group for 2017!

The Dueling Darlings have been creating on SplitCoast Stampers for a number of years. They are a group of friends who divided themselves into two groups to “duel” it out every month. Group A or B wasn’t cool, so they became the Divas and the Dazzlers. Every month, one person from each team works together to send card kits and a challenge out to the other members of the team. Despite being a duel, there is no “loser” in this game…we all get to create and celebrate our differences (and similarities).

I got to join Team Diva!

Tami and Terry L started us out this year. They chose not to create a specific challenge, but just sent a Valentine’s themed kit. It sure got me in the mood to “love” this challenge – and I got to work with one of my favorite stamp companies. Here is my creation:

This kit had so many cool elements to work with. Normally, I shy away from them, but there were so many cool things! I used an old Basic Grey sketch as my inspiration for this creation.

I’m thankful to the Dueling Darlings for letting me play along this year. All the Divas and Dazzler are linked on my right sidebar and you can take a tour on the 15th of every month to see what they’ve created.

See you again soon, lovelies!
