but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Feel the Love

It's that time...the Dueling Darlings are at it again!

Barb and I were hostesses this month.  Barb for the Divas and myself for the Dazzlers.  And since we are posting the day after Valentine's Day, we wanted the love to continue another day.  So, our theme was...FEEL THE LOVE.

AND...THE SPECIAL PART...

This month we are honoring each of our founders, Jeanette and Kelly.  (They are getting a different set of details, without this part).  So—please use the theme Feel the Love to show your love to your leader or to both of them if you wish.  You can tell of some of the things you “love” about them or point out some of the things you know they love—books, family, God, coloring, etc.  

FUN!  Did we get you Jeanette and Kelly?

Both of these lovely ladies truly love the Lord and it shows in all they share.

Our leader for the Dazzlers, Jeanette, is a true friend.  She is always there supporting everyone and sending up prayers when someone is in need.  She truly reflects God's love.

I kept my card simple this month because I really wanted the verse to stand out.


Our kit included:

Stamp Sentiment - company unknown
Ribbons from Stampin' Up!
Doily - Wilton cake decorating
Flowers - Joann's
Lg white brad/brown brad - Stampin' Up!
Heart brads - ???? My stash
Plaid DP - Hot Off the Press - Christmas Plaid
Heart DP - Hot Off the Press - Lots of Love
"Love" DP - me & My Big Ideas

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar for all the Dueling Darlings blogs and check out all the love.

Your card is gorgeous! I love the way you did the strips of DP behind the image. Beautiful! And what a fun kit you sent. I loved the image, of course - and all the wonderful items in the kit, too.

Hi Debbie! Wow! I just love the theme and the kits you and Barb sent us this month! I especially love the beautiful sentiment image using my favorite Bible verse...I'm wondering if it's still in production 'cause I would love to have it! Your card highlights it so beautifully with those wonderful dsp banners, background dsp and the cluster of flowers!!
I love that you chose to honor our leaders, Jeanette and Kelly! They truly inspire us and reflect the fruit of the Spirit in their daily lives. Thanks!

What a wonderful stamp to have, I'll bet it's one of your favorites.

I love how you made banners behind the sentiment, it's so pretty.

Your friendship is a blessing to me!
