The Duel is On!

Kind of late in the day, but here I am!

And, I am the hostess this month for the Dazzlers....oops!

Kadie and I decided on this theme:

Globetrotting and Getting Down to Your Roots

For September we decided that since there are so many cute stamps out right now with different country themes, that we would travel the globe and celebrate culture!
Please find enclosed in your kit, a stamp that represents a certain country and papers and embellishments to match this travel theme. Feel free to make this month’s challenge your own in any way. Whether it be with a sentiment or embellishment that reflects your own heritage or just by sharing with us in your post what your heritage is and what traditions you have in your family that celebrate those origins.

I added: To tell the truth friends, I loved the heritage and tradition theme and chose to send generic people that you can customize! I hope you don't mind!

I kept the accessories in black and white theme so they can coordinate with your design!

The stamps are from two sets from
CTMH:
Family Ties - Adult
Family Ties - Children

The embellishments are from Michael's


So, without further ado, my card:



I customized a family to look like the flag of Ireland.....my last name is, after all, O'Connor!

Check out the rest of the duel.....links are on my zany sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April

Awwww... this is so cute, April... and it's your family! I love the way you included a mom, a dad, and a son.

Your theme and kit were great fun, too! Thanks for being a great hostess this month!

April, your card turned out super duper cute! I suspect Kyle is a little bit taller than that these days though. ;)

The colors of the Irish Flag - very creative!! Love the images and how they represent your family, although Kadie is right, Kyle must be taller than that, hehehe

Great kit, really got us going in many different directions. Loved it!

I like how you have 'customizable' peeps! Yours turned out great. I like the extra flourishes. Cute card!
