The Dueling Darlings are a group on Splitcoaststampers. We are divided up into the Divas and the ***Dazzlers***. Each group receives a kit, and we all create with a like theme.  Then, we hop to each others blogs to see what everyone has created.

Shelly, that is such a perfect card for this time of year! I really love that stamp which is perfect with the burlap. Hope you had a great Valentine's.

Uh-oh, Shelly! Looks like the truck driver is losing some of his load of hearts. ;)

I love the way you put those hearts, like they're falling out. Great card!

Too cute, Shelly! Fabulous masculine card.

What an adorable card Shelly! I love the truck with all the hearts. Would be a real guy card for sure. That sounds like such fun to get a kit and see how differently everyone uses it. Hope you've had a great week so far. They go so fast for me it's all a blur.

Love this cute truck full of hearts! Now I've got one with punkins, got one with a Christmas tree, but never seen one with hearts! What a delicious image to make for a special guy. I love the way you've done the borders & corners, load of texture & the vintage red with the tan made a great color combo too. TFS & Hugs

Laura said...

Hi Shelly, I'm in Love with your card. That adorable truck is so Cute. Love it!!

Darnell said...

I was born and raised in Iowa so I swoon over any card with a cool old pickup, especially red, and I love yours filled to the brim with hearts, Shelly! The burlap twine and buttons are perfect embellies! Thanks so much for stopping by my place and leaving me some love!! Hugs, Darnell

Oh that scalloped edge punch! I love it and how you used it. Such a rustic, yet not too country feel to your cute card. Great job!

Kristie W. said...

Super cute card!! I traded for this set years and years ago, its still uninked. Maybe I will dig it out for a holiday card someday soon :)

Terry Andress said...

I love your card Shelly! I love the use of the scalloped edges and the cute red pickup truck!

Tracie said...

Definitely a WOW card. The red truck just stands out. You did a wonderful job with the challenge.

Darlene LeTavec said...

Shelly, the card is very sweet, I love the layout and how you used that scallop as a corner punch with that DP - seriously pretty. I also love how it looks like a few hearts have bounced out the back of the truck! Too cute!
