November Duel!

Once again, it is time for the monthly duel!  I am sure y'all know about this.....two teams (all friends) rock kits that we take turns sending to each other so that we can let our creative geniuses out!

Darlene sent:
Image: Art Impressions Lazy Boy stamped with Memento ink on Conqueror Diamond White 80# cardstock
Recollections Designer Papers: Light Blue Argyle, Green Argyle, Football, Black & White Plaid, Black Polka Dots, Black Shimmer, and Brown Shimmer
Recollections Embellishments: Brads and Washi Tape

And, I created:

Darlene asked if we had any funny Thanksgiving stories about the men in our lives....nope!  Well, I have funny stories, but none that are centered around Turkey Day....maybe this year??  I will share a bit about my childhood though.  Every year, we spent the holidays with my grandparents.  It was a long trip (next door) and we all had to be there before dinner commenced.  One year, I was probably eight or nine, we had to wait (and wait and wait) for my brother who was tracking a deer! I think it was the last year we had the rule of waiting for everyone to be at the

Thanks for stopping in.  Check out the whole duel (see my sidebar) and see ya back here soon!

Gotta love it!! This card is so much fun. Love the layout and the use of the washi. Great card and great kit! Have a super weekend, my friend!!

Darlene said...

Wow, I just love those banners behind the image in the top corner! The red really snaps up the color scheme. Good call on that one!

Had to laugh about your deer-tracking brother delaying Thanksgiving dinner. Good reason to change the rule!

Melina said...

Oh I love your banners! That is also a great way to use the washi tape! Great card April. Great story too :)

Barb said...

April--that image is just a hoot and so reminds me of Thanksgiving. Great coloring!

The banners look so good and the different DP's look great together and I probably would not have thought so on the onset.

Your brother is lucky! He would have been on the out program at our gathering! LOL

Perfect duel card, April.

Hi April!
I'm finally getting around to all the DDD's November cards!

LOVE that funny cute image and coordinating sentiment! The background paper, banner panels along with the angled placement of the image and sentiment panels make for a very dynamic card!
Thanks for sharing that holiday story. I wouldn't be holding dinner that long either!
