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!!!!!!!

Inside of my card:
Here is my card for round #12 of our very friendly duel.
Laura Jean—LJ--is our great hostess for the Divas for July and sent some awesome items for us to play with and create a sweet card. Terry is the hostess for the Dazzlers and they came up the theme of Garden of Friendship. This is for all things found in the garden, especially friendships that grow and grow! As a little extra this month, they would like us to share a friendship we have. First, I want to say I consider each and every one of the Darlings in our group a friend—even though I have only met three in person (and one will be added to the list by the time this is posted—Debbie!) We chat and chat in the DDD thread along with other threads on SCS, text and email each other—just like Real Life Friends!!! On my bucket list is to meet each of the wonderful ladies who are a part of this awesome group!

This is a card that I made for our monthly Sisterhood of the Traveling Card (SOTC) Swap on SCS. Kadie is was our June hostess and asked us to create a card for a girl's sport. Since I was the head girls volleyball coach for 19 years at the high school I retired from, I knew which sport I wanted to use. I love watching sports--and loved coaching them too!
