FINALLY!! I'm posting!! Sorry it's been so long since I posted!


This post , I was asked to be a Guest Designer for this month on the Dueling Darlings. The kit was sent to me to make this card, with the idea to make a card with something you would NOT wear on it. So.....




The image used is from American Art Stamp (Body By); and it made me think of previous years in my life. Copics were used to color the image. In the background, I made a pattern of blocks, with a color band down the middle - similar to a quilt. That's why the word REMEMBER is used - remember those times. I would not wear a quilt to a party! Of course, the brad used is a coffee cup as these ladies are drinking coffee while they eat cookies and ponder.... and the DP used with chocolate chips is so good to frame the image with since cookies are in the image!


I've really enjoyed being a Guest Designer this month!!


And I promise not to wait so long between posts on my blog!!

  8. Janet, your card is gorgeous! I love the panels using all those designer papers. What a great way to showcase them, yet hide the fact that they don't match. And your placement of every element is amazing! The end result is an absolutely beautiful card. I don't know how you did it, because that kit was truly atrocious! Tee Hee!

    Thank you for playing along this month as our Guest Designer! I appreciate you and am glad you have so much fashion sense!
