Calendar Girls - January

Anniversary time!!!!!  The Calendar Girls from SCS are starting another fun filled year.  Didn't I just say that...oh, did I say that aloud?! 

Our hostess and group leader is, Jeanette.  Our challenge this month was to choose a national holiday that associated around our birth date, and use that theme to create a card. Thankfully, we were provided with a website to aid our choice.  I decided to go specifically to my birthday, September 17th.

There were some pretty funny ones to choose from!  I seriously considered National Rehabilitation Day for my hoarding paper tendencies, but settled on a holiday that reminded me of a few things and some card inspiration from, Jeanette.

I chose not just national, but International Country Music Day.  Who knew?!  Jeanette, is currently doing the 100 cards in 100 days challenge.   I admire those who can complete that challenge. She has put up some pretty cute Riley cards, so that made me go diggin' through my image files and I found the perfect countrified Riley.  Then recently someone had a card that had apples as the theme {sorry I cannot remember who}, so I went through my scraps and found some apple and wood DP to create this card.

Of course I had to get my Pandora One on while I made this. Country of course!!!  It makes me giggle that the Pandora country station is called Country Cra*!  Here is a song that is a unique collaboration that worked.  I have it on my 'Slo Mo' playlist on my iPod.

Please be sure and visit all of the Calendar Girls to see their creations.  I cannot wait to see what holidays they came across.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.   Have a great day!
