Calendar Girls March Challenge

Happy Monday!

Its time for our Calendar Girls Chanllenge! Our hostess April challenged us with three different elements this month...

1. To use an image..stamp or digital of something that we are looking forward to. Well I didn't quite do this, but you will soon see why.
2. We should use a technique/product that 'scares' us.
3. April also gave us a sketch to follow...which, with some abstract could work.

I am so wanting winter to be gone, so I have been thinking flowers. I also wanted to try punch art, which I have never done before, hence my new and scarey technique. At work there is card class going on that teaches how to make this flower, so I thought I would try to make it. I altered it slightly, and added Glimmer Mist to the whole card which is also a new and scarey product.

Hope you like what I came up with:

Tools used: Marvey scalloped circle punch, paper crimper, quik stick.
Paper: Kraft card stock as base from Archivers, DP is My Minds Eye and Basic Grey
Embellishments: Toile, Pearl (self-adhesive), Glimmer Mist

March Duel....

Hi Friends!

This month our hostess was Jeanette, and our theme is 'Bring out the Kid in You. We needed to add to our card something that shows off our childhood or favorite things we did as a kid.  The card kit was awesome, it had something of everything, and I only used some of the embellishments that she sent.

Some of the things that I did with my childhood/teenage friend was bike ride, board games, and card games...especially Crazy Eights and Rummy.

This is what I came up with!

Image: Me and My Big Ideas Kelly & Kelly
Cardstock: SU! Kraft
Designer Paper: DCWV The Guy Stack (blue paper), EK Success (Scrabble Paper)
Embellishments: Darice Rhinestones, Gartner Brides Table Confetti paper flowers, and Scrabble titles, and a playing card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
