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 is the first month of the challenge and it falls on the creator of this group—Jeanette—to offer the details of the first card.She wanted us to focus on our new name and there were three components that needed to be met. 1—The card is to be created reflecting the month we are hosting—my month is May and that month is always great for our flower gardens to get ready for the summer blooms.It also is the month when I plant the baskets and pots we have on our deck and front porch. 2—We are to use our favorite embellishment—that is not hard for me as ribbons and brads are usually on every card I create. 3—We are to use out newest paper-crafting tool—I just got the new Scor-Pal and love it!I have used the first edition of this tool, but got the new one as it has more lines for scoring.I used it to make a grid on the background of the card.
So here are the details on the May Flowers card I created:
Image—Tim Holtz Flights of Fancy
Cardstock—SU Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and GKD Ivory
Ink—Rose Red with Pretty in Pink sponged on the image and the sentiment
Accessories—Nesties-Labels 11, Nesting Tag, Rose Brad, Rose Ribbon, Scor-Pal
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 the creations for this first challenge. All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar.
I hope you enjoy looking at our cards!Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!

Here is the birthday card (and the inside with the sentiment) #6 for our Battle!
What are the Dueling Darlings?We are a group of friends that met on SCS, travel in each other's swaps and have taken a new twist on crafting to "duel"!
We, the Dueling Darling Divas, have one image/card kit to work with and the other half, the Dueling Darling Dazzlers, have a different image/card kit with the same theme! The object is to see what we came up with using this theme, what stamp was picked and how the divas/dazzlers created with it!
The theme this month is Fun and Laughter—Forever After. The hostess this month is Judy, who sent us these great supplies (and there were many to choose from!)And, the twist this month is to tell of a New Year’s Resolution we’ve made, but never kept, but really wanted to.So, my New Year’s resolution in the past has been to get healthier, but I have done OK in the food part, but not the exercise part.That is to change this year—going to go to the gym more and keep going—I started last January and did fine for 6 week-then I fell on the ice and it set me back.This year, I will go 3-4 times a week.
So here are the details on the fun card I created:
Image—Rubbernecker Edna-Kicking Up Heels, inside sentiment CTMH Growing Old
Cardstock—SU Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White and a sheet of the DSP that Judy sent
Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories—Nesties-Big Scalloped Rectangles, Copics, Blue Button with variegated fiber in it, Metal charm with “Wish”, on turquoise ribbon. Inside-glimmer brads, flower with rhinestone center
Now make sure to stop by to see the Divas and then your final stop will be a link to take you to see what the Dazzlers created!We are a big group of 14, so this might take awhile ~ and this is just a friendly joust ~ no winners, certainly no losers! Just a craftin', loveable group of friends taking on a monthly joust at card making! :)
I hope you enjoy looking at our creations!Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!
