Calendar Girls - May

Oh did the Calendar Girls have fun this month.   Well, after a quick panic first!  Barb, was our Miss May hostess.  She gave hints as to skin, showing ours, bathing suits, shapes, holy night!!!!   All is good!  I do not have to pose in a bathing suit or anything of the like.  

Actually, we are challenged to use a shape or type of fancy fold that we have not used much or at all.   I know I am like waaaayyyy behind the times, but have only made one gate fold card evah and that was last month.   So, I decided to try it again.   I really like the fold and it lends a different type of card.

Our friend's son asked for a card for his girlfriend's birthday.  He asked for a music theme and said she likes purple.  Okay.   So here is my Calendar Girl card and in turn, will be her birthday card. I hope that she likes it!

Have a great day!

Dueling Darlings - May

The Dueling Darlings have been busy since our last posts!  We have since received the greatest kits to use.  Oh my.   This month Carol, was the Diva's hostess.  

Our theme is "The Perfect Blend".  This theme was chosen as our Dazzler and Diva team leaders love themselves some Starbucks!   Okay, they are a wee bit shameless about it, but we understand fully!  I would have to say I miss this is on the Big Island in Hawaii, Waimea to be exact.  It is the actual stop sign as well.  I had to take a picture of that!

Speaking of our team leader Kelly, let me just say a few things that I ♥ about her.   I think it is such an attribute that she is always so positive with situations and her outlook.   I believe that will get you far in this life and help others further themselves as well.  I like the fact that she uses the word 'holy' in front of just about anything, as I do the same!  The girl makes the best cards evah.  We are lucky to craft with her!

Carol on the other hand, sent us enough goodies this month to make 999 cards, so generous!   I had to really concentrate to not have a cluster fest!  LOL  I liked everything so much that I wanted to use it ALL!

I did have a little mishap, I guess I could blame it on a horrible headache I had when I made the card, yeah that sounds good!   I was not paying attention and cut the sentiment crooked - TWICE!  Thus, the sentiment on the card is computer generated, but close to what was provided.

I hope that you like the end result that I created.  Please be sure and visit the other Dueling Darlings.   Their blog links are located on the right side bar under the title Dueling Darlings.

Do You Think It Would Work?

So, do you think that a cupcake could make it better?   I was hoping so! 

Our friend recently had surgery and I thought this little card might help out.    The cupcake image is from Hero Arts.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC

Hope you all have a great weekend!
