but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Calendar Girls March Challenge

Today is the day to post our cards for the Calendar Girls March Challenge.  Out hostess, Tami, came up with this challenge:

Um, I hope I do not hurt anyone's feelings here but we are all a little bit of paper hoarders!!! 

Well, we are going to have to give up the security blanket for March. I would like to see your best created card with NO designer paper. *gasp*.....*thud* {I think J just hit the floor}.

So go ahead and grab your 'old school stamps' - yep, like a set you have not used in years - and create a card for the Calendar Girls.

Oh, and let's try to keep in theme with 'use what'cha got', please no new purchases for this round. Use what'cha got...well, everything but designer paper that is!

Say it isn't so????  No designer paper!!!  ***GASP***.  Believe it or not...it is doable.  

I used a layout and ink colors that we used for a card we created at a recent stamp club.  (I love the white on white!)  I did change the card stock color, sentiment and images from the original card we created. The ink colors are Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, and Garden Green. And, as instructed, I used what I had. I did not buy anything new to make this card.  Stamp sets are from A Muse and Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please check out all the Calendar Girls creations.  See my sidebar for their blogs.

February Calendar Girls

Our February Calendar Girls challenge from our hostess, Kelly, was this:

It’s February, the month of LOVE ♥ I’m thrilled to be your hostess this month and offer you a challenge of a different sort Rather than go for the traditional Valentine’s card, I wanted to ask that you each make a card – as a reflection of yourself – and share a little LOVE!

This month, please create a card (or project) that shows what YOU love … something that when we look upon your card, we will know exactly what that ONE thing is that you love so much!

You may use any colors you would like but extra brownie points for using non - traditional colors!!
* Please include one thing only – I know it’s hard {However, if it's fruit, for example, you may include a basket of it rather than just one fruit}

YOUR BONUS CHALLENGE: As a extra bonus, but completely optional part of the challenge, I would LOVE for you to send your card to a place/organization that you LOVE. Share the LOVE this month by sending your card to someone in need – OWH, children’s charities, RMH

I could have done a card about crafting, but loving that is a given about me.  I also have done a card before that reflects reading, because I really love reading...but this card shows something that you may not know about me.

Yes, I do love Candy Corns!!  However, I only try to eat them in the fall, when its Candy Corn Season, of course!!! ;)
The images and sentiment are from an A Muse sent call "Candy Corn Kisses" and the sketch is from MFT.  
Thanks for stopping by.  See my sidebar for all the Calendar Girls blogs and to find out what they love!
