Calendar Girls - May

It's Calendar Girl time!   For the month of May, April is our hostess.

April, challenged us to do three things.  First, create a masculine celebratory card, as she likes to celebrate her father this time of year.  Second, use a sketch from the SCS Sketch Challenge Forum.   The chosen sketch needed to end with the number 25, the year her father was born.  I chose to work with sketch SC125 due to the size of the items for my card.

Well, there is nothing that my dad probably celebrates more than fishing!  It was the first thing that came to mind.  I then had a little inkling that I had some older than dirt fishing pieces in my stash.  I had not looked at them in ages. I pulled them out and used the word graphic and two picture pieces that I must have gotten at a scrap booking store along the way.  I worked the pieces around a bit and intertwined them.   I added a little safety pin that was from a clothing purchase. Added some fatty grommets and put some embroidery thread - 'cause you know I don't embroider with it - on the card stock and glued it all up.

Please be sure and visit the rest of the Calendar Girls from SCS.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.   Thanks, for stopping by!

Tami, you are so creative. Adding so many fun elements, including a "treasure" from a clothing purchase. What a nice card!

I'm glad you're a Calendar Girl!

What a cool card! Colors are perfect for a masculine card. The word graphic is so cool over the images.
