Calendar Girls July Challenge

Good Morning Friends!

This month I challenged the Calendar Girls to make a card without using a stamped image. They could make it for any occasion, any season, any color....but just not use any stamping, except for the sentiment. I chose to make a card using 1sheet of patterened paper by 7 Gypsies, and ribbon.

The sheet of patterened paper is from 7 Gypsies...Lille Paper: Beautiful. I cut different pictures from the paper, mounted it on black cardstock (scrap stash), the card base is Natural (Archivers), and the ribbon is from SU!.

Thank you for stopping by today!

July Dueling Time....

Hello Friends, Welcome!

Our July hostess for our duel was Terry, and she sent us an awesome card kit! Thank you, Terry!

Our theme is 'Garden of Friendship', and our challenge is to give a story or memory of a good friend.

My circle of friends is pretty limited. One memory that I have is from high school, and I guess that has been on my mind due to our class reunion that is coming up. One friend that comes to mind is Judy, she was my BFF all through junior high and high school. We would do everything together, we even worked at the same cafe in our little town. I haven't seen her in years and hopefully this summer I will run into her. (My mom still lives in the town I grew up in.)

Now for my card:

The whole kit was so cute that I had a very hard time choosing what to use.

Items used in the kit.

DP: Flower Words, DCWV
Felt Flowers: Favorite Findings
Buttons: assorted
Doily Martha Stewart Crafts. (which actually was white, but I sponged ink over mine to make it pink)
