July Calendar Girls--A card without ink?

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 our Miss July--Michelle  Here are the directions from the Marvelous Michelle--This month is a free for all....any theme! But.....there is a catch.

Our cards can be created using anything BUT a stamped image (sentiments are okay). Here is where you can get creative...examples would be punch art, stickers, embellishments, patterned paper, whatever you chose.

So, this was a bit of a challenge for me as I rarely make a card without a stamped image.  So, off to check the Patterned Paper bins and found this great paper as well as some stickers I also had in the same spot—Whoopee!  Ready to create! 

Cardstock-- Gina K Designs Red Hot, In the Navy; Moxie Red, White & Blue Designer Paper

Accessories—Karen Foster Patriotic Parade Stickers, Blue and White Star ribbon and White Star brads

Please check out the blogs of all of the Calendar Girls—there are 10 of us, so it might take you a bit.   I am sure you will enjoy all of the July creations and how creative the other ladies are without getting inky this month.  All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar.

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

Well, I think we should go imageless more often if our cards look like yours! It reminds me of the 'country' look. Great layout and choices in materials. Love it!!!!
