Calendar Girls - March

This year is off to a quick start.  We are already posting for the Calendar Girls on SCS for March! 

I am happy to be the hostess for the month of March.  I asked the girls to create with three things in mind.   Use one button, have the color purple somewhere on your card, and use this sketch.  It is always so fun to see what these Calendar Girls come up with.  Please take a peek for yourself.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.

Below is the card that I created for the challenge.   I had not worked with a Magnolia image in some time.   They are a favorite of mine.  Even though my husband always asks where their mouths are!  LOL  All other elements of the card are scrap pieces from my 'use what'cha got' phase!

Thanks, for stopping by and I hope that you have a great weekend.

Card entered in the following challenge(s):  Deconstructed Sketch

Dueling Darlings - March

I wasn't sure I was going to make the due date for the duel this month!   Just in the nick of time, this round.  

LJ, was our hostess this month.  She sent the most adorable image and sentiment.  I just had to use both!  The kit was full of great papers and embellies.  Thank you, LJ. 

In real life, the umbrella is not quite so orange in color and her skirt is blended a bit better than in the photograph.   I was on the run, so had to go with what kept showing through. 

I was taking the picture of the card and I hear this odd noise in the living room.   Oh...that would be our cat Mia knocking down all of the pillows off of the sofa like a bulldozer. You know the sofa she is not supposed to be on. I walk over and Mia does this 'wanna pet my cute self' thing.  How can you get mad at that?!

Please be sure and check out all of the Dueling Darlings.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Have a great day!
