Calendar Girl Fun


Today being the 28th of May means it's time for the Calendar Girls blog group to have a little fun.

This month April is "our Calendar Girl" which means she chose the guidelines for our creative challenge.

Well, it is May and I always like to honor my father this month.

So, to celebrate him (and fathers every where) let us make a masculine celebratory card with any SCS sketch that ends in 25 (the year he was born).


Please let us know which sketch you used and a memory of a special man in your life!



THANK YOU, April! I had a lot of fun with this challenge.



Here is my card:




I used the SC225 sketch:







I liked how the inside turned out:

Oh, I love it! I was going to use this sketch, but my center piece was too big.

The wood DP and the touch of black look great. I am a fan of the uncolored image as well.

Great card!!!

Wonderful masculine card. The wood DP is fantastic. I love how you used both the DP and image on the inside and out.

Oh Oh Oh, this is divine! What a great masculine card, the wood paneling is just perfect! Great sketch, this one was my 2nd choice :) Love the tractor image -- makes me think of our friend, Lorie! ♥

This is a fabulous man card. I love the rustic background and inside of your card.

WOW- this is so awesome! The wood grain is the perfect backdrop for the tractor. My Mom and husband grew up on farms, so I am so drawn to tractors!
