The Dueling Darlings are at it again. It's January 15th (which totally crept up on me) but that means it is time to post our cards for our friendly "little" duel this month.
Hostesses, Melina and Joan, chose the theme "The Little Things." The kits the Dazzlers received contained three images...a turtle (SU); a crab (SU) and a snail (Inkadinkado). And we had to use each image. The kits also contained little Marina Mist circles (SU), little lines & dp (DCWV); little dots paper (My Mind's Eye); baker's twine and Crumb Cake ribbon (SU); green pearls(Queen & Co.) and a white button and yellow clip (Wal-Mart).
Our hostesses also gave us two challenges with this month's kit:
1. We had to post the first thing that popped into our heads when we saw the theme title.
2. And since the three images all had shells we had to come up with a witty sentiment for our card.
So...here is my creation (and not so witty) sentiment:
What popped into my head when I read the theme? It was treasuring the "little" things that make my heart soar. The little muddy hand giving me a handful of half-dead dandylions. The times when my oldest daughter gives me a little glimpse into what her heart is feeling and what her mind is thinking. The fact that my DH isn't predictable...I don't get flowers every anniversary, birthday or Valentine's Day, but then one day, a day without much significance, I will get flowers with a note that says he loves me. And my two boys...one a teenager and the other one just a few years away from being a teenager, still love to hug their mom, even in front of their friends. Ahhh...the little things.
Thanks for stopping by. Please check out all Darlings' blogs for their creations. See my sidebar for a listing.
