A Girly Duel

It is the15th...... You know what that means....
A duel between the Dazzlers and the Divas!

Kadie and I (as hostesses) decided to go with a more general theme rather that a seasonal or holiday one this month.

We are having a "Girl's Night Out"!  

Who doesn't like to spend some time with their bff's??  On top of making your card why don't we share who our longest friend is and our favorite thing to do with that person.  

The Dazzler kit includes:
Wood Embellishments ~ Prima's Princess Collection
Metal Index Tabs ~ Making Memories
Asst'd Ribbon ~ my stash
Card Stock ~ Sugar N Spice, Coffee, and Fuschia Fizz  by Coordination
DP ~ Pink Swirls and Pink Gingham by Paper Pizazz
     ~ Paper Jazzy by ColorBok
Sequins ~ Teresa Collins
Stamp Set ~ Ginger Snaps Celebrate by C.C. Designs stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black

My BFF, Cheryl, has been my friend since grade school!  We have gone to the prom together, learned to drive at about the same time, been in each other's wedding, vacationed together.....you name it.  We just like to spend time with each other!!  We scrapped together and she introduced me to stamping!  We even get to do that on occasion together!

I think I will even send this card off to her!

Make sure you visit the rest of the Dazzlers and the Diva team.....they love luv too!

Hugs, April

All God's Children

The Carriers of Faith April Challenge from Carol is: "All God's Children".

For your card/project and/or photo, please create something depicting a baby, child, teen, adult ("as we are all special in his eyes")

Scripture: "And Jesus took a child and put him in this midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me. " ~Mark 9:36-37
The DP's are from Prima and the card stock was from my stash.  The only embellishment I used was some SU! Dazzling Details.  I didn't think it needed much more.  The darling image was a gift from someone many moons ago, so if you know where he is from, let me know.  And, the sentiment is part of a great set (hand scripted) from amuse|studio.  I used the current challenge #309 at Techno Stamper.

Check out our hop and these Lady Carriers of Faith all love luv!!

A Week of Challenges

I finally took time to craft!
Decided to do a different challenge each day.....pretty cool that I actually pulled it off!
You will notice the same purple used on two different days...lol...that is what you get when you don't clean up from a project!  Also, the same yellow comes into play too....not sure I am a creature of habit or just too lazy to get out new card stock when a scrap is staring me in the face??  You decide!

So, here is my week in review:

Thanks for stopping by!

Hoot, Hoot!!

I am late.....and I apologize.  Life got in the way of crafting and blogging this week.  Plus, I had no clue that yesterday was the 28th....my bad!

The Calendar Girls were hosted by Tami this month.  Here is her challenge to us:
Oh girls, we are going to create a card this month! I thought of a few things that might keep us busy for March.

Did you know that March used to be the first month of the year on the Roman calendar? It was changed to the third month by Julius Caesar. The calendar we use today is refined from the Julius to the Gregorian. Sadly, we only gained like the wee bit of a percentage of more time to craft with the change! In theme of the original first month, let's use one button on your card.

Let's make a card based on a sketch. I saw this sketch and wanted to use it at some point. It's time! Please note, the sketch challenge is still open, so be sure to join!

Speaking of Romans, purple is the color of the day. Please use the color purple on your card somewhere. Purple was worn by Roman Emperors and magistrates. It is also the color worn by those cute little ladies you see out lunching together, wearing purple and red and a bunch of hats!

Since history was after lunch for me in high school, I really had to put my 'dig deep to remember' thinking cap on for this one! Here are the CliffsNotes: one button, use the sketch and purple somewhere on your card.

Hope you have fun! I cannot wait to see what you create!

So, here it is:

Please check out the creations by the other Calendar Girls.....check my sidebar for links.
