I'm Miss February! :)




Hi there!  Today is a most exciting day - the premiere posting day for the Calendar Girls, a sensational group of blogging friends joined together by the fabulous Jeanette!  Her idea of having her own blog group filled with lots of fun chat, challenges and paper goodness blossomed and here we are!  We are affectionally known as the Calendar Girls because each of us have an assigned month from Jan to October - this month our hostess is Jeanette :)  

Her challenge?  1.  Make a card showing off YOUR month - since I'm Miss February, lots of red, hearts and even red hot came to mind!  (okay, so not red hot ...... bwahaha!) 
2.  Use your favorite embellishments - mine are buttons!  I cannot get enough of buttons!
3.  To use our new/newest tool or item that we have gotten - my shopping is down to zero so I have to use the newest thing that I remember and that's the wonderful paper trimmer from dh from Christmas - it's so special to me becuase he went into Michaels all by himself, lost as all get up, to find one!  I'm also using the scallop edge that is new-ish but already debuted last week ;)



My card is a reflection of my personality, too :) I LOVE color.  I love to use colors that are bright and fun and whimsical.    So my "Valentine" card is actually pretty out there as per non-traditional, lol, but I'm not a pink girly girly kinda girl ;)  I used my My Mind's Eye "Love me Do" dsp from (last year!)  and used a sort of spin off of a TSG sketch from a few months back.   The stamp is a sweet little heart bear from Elzybells.  For the heart, I carried over the dsp by paper piecing, one of my fave techniques!


I'm entering this card into the following Challenges:
  A Spoon full of Sugar -- Valentines
  Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge - Love is in the air
  The Beary Scrap Design - #18 Love or Friendship
Creative Craft World - Cute and Cuddly
Everybody Art - My favorite thing (teddy bear)
Creative Card Crew - country colors (red, white, blue + yellow for our soldiers)
Riley & Co - Hearts

  40. What an adorable teddy bear! Such a great card inside and out! I especially enjoyed reading about your wonderful husband going to Michaels alone to purchase your gift. He sounds like my husband - out of his element but willing to take the risk to find what he knows I'll like!

  41. Adorable! Thanks so much for joining our Beary Sweet Challenge to include "love" or "friendship". I love your card!

    Please be sure to link you challenge entry and not just your blog home page. As much as I love your blue and green butterfly card, I mistakenly commented there for this challenge. Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Susan
