Calendar Girls ~ Garden Angel

It is the 28th,  and is also the last day of the month.  Please scroll down for my Crafters of Faith Post.
Being the 28th, so I am here to welcome you 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. 

Kelly is our hostess and her challenge is  *~* Share the LOVE! *~*

It’s February, the month of LOVE
I’m thrilled to be your hostess this month and offer you a challenge of a different sort Rather than go for the traditional Valentine’s card, I wanted to ask that you each make a card – as a reflection of yourself – and share a little LOVE!

This month, please create a card (or project) that shows what YOU love … something that when we look upon your card, we will know exactly what that ONE thing is that you love so much!

*You may use any colors you would like but extra brownie points for using non - traditional colors!!
* Please include one thing only – I know it’s hard {However, if it's fruit, for example, you may include a basket of it rather than just one fruit}

YOUR BONUS CHALLENGE: As a extra bonus, but completely optional part of the challenge, I would LOVE for you to send your card to a place/organization that you LOVE.
Share the LOVE
this month by sending your card to someone in need – OWH, children’s charities, RMH-- the possibilities are endless. Know that somewhere out there, your generous mailing of your card could bring a smile to someone in need

Have fun creating and crafting and I so look forward to sharing the love with you this month!

This is a wonderful challenge as we get to see the “one thing” that illustrates what we love.  I can’t wait to check out all of the other creations—however I probably should talk about my card first.  I love flowers and am getting so ready to get the seeds planted and putting the little pots under the grow lights in the basement.  Then—in April, we can move the trays out to the greenhouse.  This will be year 2 of that great structure and we will see what we learned last year.  Bring on the sunshine!  And—you all knew that I would probably use a Whipper Snapper stamp too.
Here is the inside with the sentiment--I am so ready for a Party!

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Garden Angel/Let’s Party

Cardstock—Gina K White; Stampin’ Up Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pebbles Ever After Little Princess Patterned Paper

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 creations inspired by what we love! All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar. Thanks for joining us!!!!!!!

Well, shucks, Barb! I thought sure you were going to say the thing you love is GIVING PRIZES to me!

Seriously, your card is so pretty - and it is certainly appropriate for you. I am anything but a gardener, but hearing you speak of your garden, flowers, etc. always makes me smile!

Your card is too cute! I love the image in the fact she has glasses!

I admire people that can keep a plant alive. If it was not for automatic sprinklers, we would be surrounded by dried up grasses ready to torch! LOL
