June Calendar Girls--Hello Summer!

Welcome to another round with the Calendar Girls!

Who are the Calendar Girls? We are a group of bloggers who want to have a place where friendships blossom, creativity abounds, and encouragement prevails! In keeping with that dream, this blog group has been created so we will have a place to interact and enjoy being fellow bloggers. 

This month hostess is Carol.  Here are the directions from the wonderful Carol--The month of June brings many, many things...it is the beginning of summer for most areas...it is associated with weddings, graduations, picnics, swimming, VACATIONS...a whole bunch of wonderful things...so the task for us should we chose to accept, was this:

1. Make a card or a 3D item or whatever you would like and base it around something that you enjoy doing or plan on doing this summer...ex: a vacation, camping, family picnic, swimming, family reunion....you get the idea...

2. Write a short ditty about why you like or are looking forward to the theme you have on your card, when you post...

I am not sure if I will have the opportunity or not this summer—but I love to float on rafts or tubes on a lake or in a pool and if I have a beverage, even better!  We are headed to Alaska for vacation in July, so I am pretty sure I will not be able to do so there.  But there may be a weekend up north at a friend’s cabin later in the summer.  And, I will not be wearing a bikini!

Stamps--Whipper Snapper Poolside Chicken

Cardstock-- Gina K Designs White; SU Pacific Point, Marina Mist; Best Creations Surfs Up  

Ink—Palette Black

Accessories—Gold Scallop Velvet Ribbon, Copics, Beach Ball and Sunglasses brads

Please check out the blogs of all of the Calendar Girls—there are 10 of us, so it might take you a bit, but I am sure you will enjoy all of the June creations and the stories that go with them.  All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar.

I hope you enjoy looking at our cards!  Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!
