Time for our Dueling Darlings Challenge. Kelly is our hostess this month and our theme is "We are a rainbow!" Each of us brings a light and color to life. We are all an important "band" of the rainbow. We have all been given a randomly chosen color and our challenge was to use ONLY your color to represent our band of the rainbow.

Spring is here in the Midwest although this week feels more like summer. Typical up and down weather. I am enjoying all the beautiful flowers blooming right now so today's challenge is a little more reminder of the beauty around us. Today over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies we are being sponsored by Jan's Digi Stamps.
For my card today I am using the digital stamp from the stamp set "Spring Tiger Lilies".

Since today is the 28th, that means it is time to post my creation for our "Challenge Your Stash" group on Splitcoaststampers. So just like the title says, we are to find something in our stash to make a card. Sue is our hostess for the month of April and her challenge was to make an Earth Day card in honor of Earth Day on April 22. I have to admit that this challenge had me stumped. She said to think about all things that make this earth beautiful. Well that has endless possibilities. Of course I put off to making my card until yesterday because I was so torn on which stamp set to use. Ocean, flowers, trees, etc. came to mind but since I waited until the last minute to make the card I thought I had better go with a simple card.

It is getting to feel a bit more like spring here in the Midwest. I am enjoying seeing all the trees blooming and flowers ready to bloom. My favorite time of the year.

The 15th sure rolled around quickly this month. But this means I need to post my card for our Dueling Darlings Challenge. Terry and Darlene were our hostesses this month and their theme for the challenge this month was Holograms.

Yesterday was our day to post our Challenge Your Stash projects but since I had a post for PIP Challenges yesterday, I thought I would save it for today.
Jeanette was our hostess this month and her challenge for us was to make a spring card. I sure am enjoying seeing all the flowers pop up here in Kansas. Just noticing the magnolias, daffodils and forsythias are blooming here. I know tulips are right around the corner.

I just love digital images because storage has become an issue for me. I try to weed out my stamps and dies every once in a while but my inventory still creeps up on me. That is why digital is the way to go.

Barb and Lorraine were in charge or our challenge this month and what a fun one it is. They decided to come up with Team Coffee and Team Tea as our group challenges. Lorraine was in charge of our group and decided we are Team Tea.
I love myself a cup of tea so this was a fun challenge for me.
The image of the mug and heart is from Hampton Arts. The lemons are from Hero Arts. The mug was stamped with CTMH New England Ivy Ink. I colored the lemons with my copic markers. The Designer paper is from Papertrey Ink. Lorraine also sent us a Lipton tea bag so we could enjoy a cup of tea while we make the card. I decided to use the actual Lipton tag on my card. I colored the small coffee mug with my copic markers.
What a fun theme and I loved the challenge this month. I always love starting my day with a cup of coffee but in the evening I love a good cup of tea so it is hard for me to decide which I prefer. Both are good.
Check out what some of the other members did with the challenge this month.

I am really excited to share my card with you today for Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge #2203. Our sponsor this week is Polkadoodles. Whenever I feel the urge to color, I go through the images at Polkadoodles because they are so adorable and fun to color.
For my card today I am using the digital stamp "Fluffy Friends".

My card today is for our Challenge Your Stash Group on Splitcoaststampers. I love this group because everyone month someone will pick a challenge and you need to go through your Stash and see what you can use for the theme that month.
Barb was our hostess this month and she decided that our challenge would be to include a bird in our project. I thought oh that will be easy because I have so many bird stamps. Well 4 hours later I had cleaned out my stamps and sorted through. I now have many stamp sets ready to go to a garage sale.
\In my stash I came across this adorable stamp set called "Flamingo Botanical" that I have never used. I stamped the image our and then colored it with my copic markers. I then fussy cut the bird out. The background was formed by making a mask with one of my oval dies and then used the Farmhouse Basket stencil from Whimsy Stamps. I thought it made a nice background to the bird. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I sure everyone had a nice Valentines Day yesterday. It was a beautiful day here in Kansas and I got my favorite valentine meal. We have a Greek restaurant here that I really like.
Since today is the 15th of the month, this means it is time for our Dueling Darlings group to post pictures of what they have done. This month I was paired up with Carol to be the hostesses for February. I always like to look and see what special holidays are in February and I noticed that February is Library Lovers Month. I love to read so this theme really jumped out at me. I love our local library so this card is in honor of all libraries.

There are some amazing digital images in her etsy store. I sure hope you check it out. The design team was given the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set to work with. I do love butterflies so I was trying to think of a different way to use these beautiful images. I colored them up with my copic markers and then found some papers to coordinate with the colors.

I am so excited about our Challenge #2205 over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies. This week is being sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies. Newton's Nook Designs I am the owner of 2 orange kitties so this stamp company has always had a special place in my heart. They are just the nicest people also. There is an extra piece to the challenge this week and it is "Sunshine".
I was also excited this week because I got to use one of my favorite stamps sets from Newton's Nook Designs called Woodland Spring. I just love all the adorable animals.

I'm really not sure how the 28th rolled around so quickly. But today is our day to post our project for the challenge your stash group on splitcoaststampers.

Did you know that today is National Strawberry Ice Cream Day? I wonder if I could go outside and gather some of the newly fallen snow and make snow ice cream. Did you ever do that as a kid?
January 15 starts a new round with the first Duel as a Dueling Darlings 2 group. Kelly and Jeanette were our hostesses this month and came up with the fun challenge.

I am in a group on Splitcoaststampers called the Monthly Image Swap. I love it because I never know what the hostess will use as our image for the month. This month our hostess is Imke who is our moderator on the swap.
Imke chose this beautiful image from Simon Says Stamp called Butterfly Kisses.

Another year has arrived. I have to admit I was asleep by 9:30 and did not see the new year come in. Guess that is old age talking.
I have decided on my motto for 2022 and it is Choose Kindness for many reasons. I think if everyone would do a Random Act of Kindness each week they would be rewarded with a wonderful feeling and also help someone out in need. If you need ideas, I found this 100 Daily Acts of Kindness. Just pick one a week and see how it makes you feel.
Check back on Monday because we start our new challenges for PIP Challenges.
