A New Card!


Hi Friends!

I wanted to post a card I made recently for a friend who came to visit Seattle. We visited a local store together, called Impress, and I couldn't resist picking up a couple new items.

So, I dusted off my old cuttlebug and paper piercer and voila, a card to remember this sweet visit with my friend, Barb.

It's a little hard to tell from the pic, but the die cut is a cell phone. Also the faux pic of Seattle is spritzed with shimmer to look like a screen.

Thanks for popping by!

Chickens!

Hi Friends,

I know it's been a while since I posted. I took a hiatus from crafting after my son was born and I'm trying to get back into it more regularly.

Here is a card I made for the Sisterhood swap group I'm in and the theme was to make a card that had anything to do with chickens :)

Thanks for stopping by!

DDD November


Hi Friends!

It's been quite some time, but I'm back because it's the 15th of the month and I've got a Dueling Darling card to share.
(I'm still missing cards for Barb's fun kit in September and my own in October and I really apologize for that)

This month's hostesses are Carol (for the Divas) and Shelly (for the Dazzlers) and they've chosen a "Give Thanks" theme.
I love that theme and I LOVE this kit! :) There's just something really special about Fall when all the leaves start to change color and the air turns a little crisper---definitely something to be thankful for.

Thank you to Carol for the beautiful kit and thanks to this whole group of Darlings for being so big hearted, inspirational and creative!

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving,
Kadie

DDD June, July and August

Hi Friends!
I know it has a been quite a furlough for me as far as card making goes. But I have 3 Dueling Darlings cards to show you today! (I apologize in advance for the bad pics, it appears there's a smudge on the lense of my camera)

The first is for this month's Olympic theme, hosted by Judy and Debbie. Judy sent us an amazing kit filled with so many options--I think I can make a couple more cards with it!
I loved that Judy included the Olympic rings in her kit, so I couldn't resist using and making them the focal point of the front of the card. Then I colored up the super cute Scrappin Doodles image, Go for the Gold and included her inside the card.



We were also asked to share if we have a favorite event in the Summer Olympics. I think ever since I was little I've loved watching the gymnastic competition. I can remember being so captivated by the USA team in the 90's -- the magnificent seven!

The next card is from Kelly and Jeanette's Christmas in July DDD challenge. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Kelly sent us Snoopy. My son just celebrated his 2nd birthday and he had a Snoopy party, so this stamp was so fun to color up! And she sent us one of my all time favorite patterned papers, so I was in heaven! :)


Kelly and Jeanette asked us to share what the first thing is that we do each year to get in the Spirit of Christmas. For me, it's pulling out my Christmas cd's. I love Christmas music! In fact, each year I get a new Christmas cd. Nothing like Christmas music to get your mojo going to make Christmas cards!

My third catch-up DDD card is for LJ and Darlene's June theme of PETS. What a FUN FUN kit!! I loved the image and the colors SO MUCH! What a blast to get to play with the awesome kit that LJ sent (and I'm sorry it took me so long!).


Thanks for stopping by to see my cards and thanks to the lovely hostesses for their patience!

DDD May Flowers



Hi Friends,
It's that time again for the 15th of the month and another round of Dueling Darlings.
This month our Diva hostess Tami provided us with an awesome kit, that includes this image from Red Rubber Designs.

We were also asked to share if we had a flower that we plant annually. I don't have anything that I plant every year, but I do have a few favorites in my yard that bloom once a year. My most favorite is our lilac bush. :)

Hope you enjoy all the Flower themed cards this month and be sure to visit all the Darlings below:

DDD Swing Into Spring


Hi Friends,
It's that time again for the 15th of the month (did you get your taxes done?) and another round of Dueling Darlings.
This month our Diva hostess is Suzy and her partner for the Dazzlers is Terry A. They chose a Swing Into Spring theme!
Suzy provided us with an awesome kit, that includes this image from a retired SU stamp set called A Kind Word.

We were also asked to share if we had a favorite Spring dessert and mine is LEMON BARS. Yummmmmm. :)

Hope you enjoy all the Spring themed cards this month and be sure to visit all the Darlings below:

DDD Man's Best Friend



Hi Friends!
Welcome to another round of Dueling Darlings!

This month Carol and Shelly chose a theme called "For the Dogs," and Carol sent us Divas a most FABulous kit to play with. There were so many fun papers to use that I just couldn't make up my mind and was inspired to create panels to play with them all.



We were also asked about our childhood pets and I had quite a few, but I will just share about the first one I remember to be my friend and that was Bandit the cat. My parents had both a cat and dog before I came along and they were not happy to share their parents with me, but Bandit came along after and was my cat. He was the sweetest and a good friend to wee little Kadie. :)

Thanks to Carol and Shelly for another fun duel and I hope you'll check out all of the creations from the Ladies' links below.

DDD Tutti Fruity


Hi Friends!
Welcome to another round of Dueling Darlings!

I know that you're expecting to see a little mouse on my card for today, but I just didn't feel right about working on my own kit until I had caught up on one very awesome kit that I hadn't yet had a chance to work on.
So, without further adieu, here is my card using Kelly's fun Tutti Fruity kit from (eeek) September.

Such a gorgeous kit and I loved every moment playing with it today. Thank you, Kelly for the goodies, for your patience and most of all for your sweet friendship!

I will be sure to post a little mousey card in the next day or two that goes with Paola and my "Being a Kid at Heart" theme for February. And I wanted to thank the Divas (and Dazzlers too) for their awesome cards today using the Feb kits. MUAH!

DDD Get Well Soon


Hi Friends!
I know it has been eons since I've posted anything, but the time has come!!
It's time for another round of the Dueling Darlings and it was just what I needed to get my mojo going.

This month's hostesses are Barb (for the Divas) and Tracie (for the Dazzlers) and they chose a SOUP---GET WELL theme.

Barb sent us Divas the most BEAUTIFUL kit! I love love the Stampin' Up paper that she sent and all the embellishments were super yummy too. And I can't forget the main attraction; the Whipper Snapper Chicken Soup stamp!
Thank you, Barb!

We also were asked to share our favorite soup. I must admit that I am not a big soup fan. But I do have a couple that I will eat on a day that I'm needing to feel warm and toasty inside. Tomato soup (with grilled cheese), chicken tortilla soup (with corn bread) and taco soup (atop tortilla chips). Yum!

Be sure to check out all the awesome cards from the rest of the DDD! See you next month :)

Falling Into New Friendships

Hi Friends!

It's hard to believe I've been away for so long, I almost forgot how to post :) Forgive me though, life got in the way and crafting was set on the way back burner.

I'm back today with another round for our Dueling Darlings group! But first I must apologize to our Dear Diva leader, Kelly, and all the Darlings for missing last month's round! I'm still working on that card. xoxo

Judy and Debbie came up with a really fun theme this month to incorporate both the change of seasons and celebrate the arrival of our new Darlings, Suzi, Tracie and Shelly--Falling Into New Friendships.

Judy sent us a real smorgasbord of papers and embellishments. Such great items to play with and TONS to choose from (thanks, Judy)!!

For my card I decided to take the die cuts and create a bookmark. I used clear poly "cardstock" (which is transparency paper from the office supply store) to create a pocket for the bookmark. This allows all of the great patterned paper to continue to show through and gives the allusion that the tree is among it's dsp friends :)



Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit all the other Divas and Dazzlers!! (see links on side bar)
