Oh my! Can you believe it? JessicaLynnOriginal is being recognized by CardMaker magazine! That is SOOOOO exciting! And as part of the celebration, there's a BLOG HOP today, which is probably why you're here on my blog. If you came from MARIA'S BLOG, then you're at the right place. If you just  jumped in here (because you love me) then you'll want to go back to the BEGINNING and hop all the way through.... because............

We will pick one winner for a $50 Gift Card good for ANYTHING at our website. The only rule is they need to comment on each blog in the hop.

Didn't I tell you this is exciting!?!?!?

I love Christmas so I decided to use two JessicaLynnOriginal stamps/sets to make my card - both with a Christmas theme: Brentwood Owl Merry Christmas Santa and Reindeer (on the front of my card) and Christmas Celebrate the Season with Santa (on the inside of my card).

Tutti Fruity


NOTE: I have two blog posts today, this one and the {PIN}Spirational Challenge one that follows it, so be sure to keep scrolling. You won't want to miss the fun at the challenge!


...Dueling Darlings...

After taking a couple of months off for a break, the Dueling Darlings are ready to duel again. YAY! And we have some new duelers who have joined us, too... Welcome Tracie, Shelly, and Suzy!!!

Kelly and I are the hostesses this time - so we put our heads together and came up with the theme...

Tutti Fruity

Here's what was in the kit that I sent to the Dazzlers:


Stamps  (Recollections 110# White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black ink)
Image – Penny Black “Hedgy Gift”
Sentiment – Riley “Apples Are Dangerous”

Designer Paper
DCWV My Sunshine Stack

Embellishments
Darice Rhinestones
Hobby Lobby Decorative Trim Ribbon
Hobby Lobby Natural Hemp Cord
Recollections Apple Brads
Sew-ology Apple Button
Spare Parts Apple Shank Button
Paper Clip from an unknown vendor


Here's the card I made:






Here's the inside:




We also are giving the Dueling Darlings a little challenge... we've asked them to share a favorite fruity recipe on their blog posts.

Hmmm... I guess one of my favorites is "Snickering Apple Salad."


8 ounce of Cool Whip (thawed)
small box of instant pudding (Vanilla or White Chocolate)
4 – 6 Snickers candy bars (chopped into bite size pieces)
4 – 6 Apples (chopped into bite size pieces)

Mix together and refrigerate until chilled. 
Keep in cooler at the picnic until time to serve.

NOTE: This recipe does NOT include milk!


Be sure to check out what the other Dueling Darlings created - both the Divas (with Kelly's kit) and the Dazzlers (with my kit). You can find links to their blogs in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used on my card that wasn't in the kit was the Recollections Black Cardstock and Stampin' UP! Green Galore Cardstock.

Looking Cool


Are you ready for a new challenge? I hope so because the {PIN}Spirational Challenge Blog has a new one and I'm sure hoping you'll play along.

Try Something New


For quite a while now I've thought I wanted to try the technique where you ink up an embossing folder before using it to emboss a piece of cardstock. Today is the day!






What motivated me to do it today? The new MelonHeadz Friends Challenge did!






September 14 - 27

Theme: Try Something New


See, I just HAD to do it!

But SHEESH! I did it wrong. I am pretty sure I inked the wrong side of the embossing folder... but not to worry. I used it anyway. LOL!


Here's my card:









Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
I can't wait to see what "new" things you try when you participate in the MelonHeadz Friends Challenge.

Thank You, Thank You Very Much


I recently found (and joined) a facebook group that I love - Stamping Enablers. The members are so friendly - and chatty! And they are an inspiration to me, too.

I have shared a few pictures there of cards I've made in the past couple of weeks, including the Elvis cards that were on my blog. Well, one of the members of Stamping Enablers asked if I could/would share a few images with her, so I did.

While stamping the Elvis images to send to her, I just had to stamp another one so I could play, too. ;)





Here's the inside:
