It's the 15th and that can only mean it is time for the Darlings to be DUELING it out!
Debbie was our hostess this month and she picked a wonderful theme along with Carol!
They went with a theme based on the movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles where the main characters are trying to get home for the holiday!
Debbie sent two kits, because she couldn't did only have to use one kit, but I loved them both!!

The top card features Emelia by Kraftin Kimmie, "Hopscotch Boy Toys" from K&Co. And embellishments from SU!  The lower card shows off "Chevrolet 1957" by Clear Dollar Stamps and dp from American Crafts.

Debbie also wanted to know a favorite memory.  I must admit that Black Friday is fun on many levels.  We shop all day and then party all night.  Yep, we do Thanksgiving dinner all over again with the cousins!!  So much fun!

Make sure you check out the rest of the DUEL!

LOVE YOUR CRDS!! Shouts the early riser - so you will know that your extra effort was worth it. Blogger hasn't been cooperating with me for scheduled posts either the past few months. I dont get it.
But I do love both cards! Very creative with the '57 Chevy and love the colors on the Kraftin Kimmie image!

Judy McMullen said...

Wow! Two awesome cards!! You rock, April! Both are so bright and beautiful! Love the layout on both. Gorgeous coloring and cutting on Amelia and love how you made the tag hanging form the safety pin on the ribbon. Love that dsp and the colorful banners with that beautifully colored chevy! So much fun! So much creativity! Your recounting of Black Friday shopping stories sparked memories of the same for me! TFS!!

Terry Ladwig said... did both!!! I love them!! your layouts are great and I love the wonky way you cut out the Chevy! That is so cool, and so out of my comfort zone! Seriously, that cut is PERFECT for the image and the card!!

Love them ☺

Well, look at your cute Amelia Earhart card! It turned out great. I really like the 57 card too. Those types of stamps make great masculine cards. Great job!
