DDD – Dueling Darlings Turns 10


Yes, you heard right.  Dueling darlings turns 10 this year.  It’s been two years since I joined the dueling divas and dazzlers.  To mix things up our hostesses for August, Kelly and Jeanette, and the founders of the group, have decided to randomly place players on the same, or different teams.  Even Kelly, who sent out my package, didn’t know who was on what dueling team.  I remained on the Dazzler side and have TICKET #509794 to be entered into a contest.

Some of us participated in on-line behind-the-scenes games and contests this month.

I was overwhelmed by this month’s kit.  There was so much to use that I am going to make a second POP-UP BOX card.  I coloured my cute image with Copic and pencil crayons and adding a little bit of bling onto the celebration cake.   Doesn’t it just look yummy?

I had balloon dies and cut out four balloons with the paper from the kit, and embellished with ribbon.

Because I live in Canada and Kelly had to send through Customs (most of us know how slow customs is since COVID), I only had three days to create a card.  Working full time, it gave me a small amount of creativity time.  I want to add more dies to this box and will repost when I do.


I hope you like what I came up with.  I encourage you to see what the other ladies did with their kits.  Thanks for stopping by.

Your pop up cards are always great. This one is so much fun. WOW, 10 years, that is something!

Hope you are doing well. PS, I just used your code to purchase from TJ. Had to have pixie spray and then ordered a few stamps too.
