August Calendar Girls--Sew Happy

Inside of the card

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—Debbie.  Here are the directions from the Delightful Debbie:  SEW” Glad We Are Friends!!!

Because I just love this entire group and it feels that we have been friends forever, I just wanted to say…”Sew” Glad We Are Friends!

So for this month’s card here are the requirements.

1. Please use the above sentiment on the card somewhere. Some of you may have a stamp with that sentiment-if so, that’s great!! But if not, just type it up on your computer and print it out. (Sorry…making you work.) LOL

2. Please use at least one button on your card. (Use as many as you like...but there has to be at least one.)

3. Please have stitching of some kind on your card. You can use a sewing machine, hand stitching or faux stitching using a pen.

4. Once your card has posted to your blog, please send your card to a friend telling them how much you appreciate them and that you are “sew” glad you are friends! If you want, you can tell us in your blog post who is receiving your card and how special they are to you.

5. I know there is a lot of cute DP and stamps out there with a sewing theme, so if you have those go ahead and use them. But if you don’t have them, don’t fret-they are not necessary. Just please have the sentiment, button and stitching on your card for sure.

I do not have this stamp and did not want to print it out, so I “needed” to go shopping for it.  Did not find in anyplace—after like 6 stores of necessary shopping.  So, I found this cute paper as well as the felt stickers and the Tim Holtz die.  I know the sentiment is not what is expected, but it works for me.

This card will be given to my friend Claudia—I have known her since college and we were roomies for seven years.  She is great and as the inside states—We are Stickin’ Together!

Cardstock—Stampin’ Up So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirquette; Doodlebug Nifty Notions

Accessories—K & Company Stickers--Includes stitching and buttons, Tim Holtz Sewing Die, Quickutz Beads

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 August creations as I am sure they are SEW Cute!.  All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar.

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