it is time for another round of Calendar Girls challenge, yeahh!!
Who are the Calendar Girls you may ask? 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.
Darlin Debbie -lovingly known as lil dj- is our Miss August and she challenged us to do the following: In Debbie's own words:
“SEW” Glad We Are Friends!!!
"Because I just love this entire group and it feels that we have been friends forever,
I just wanted to say…”Sew” Glad We Are Friends!
So for this month’s card here are the requirements:1. Please use the above sentiment on the card somewhere. Some of you may have a stamp with that sentiment-if so, that’s great!! But if not, just type it up on your computer and print it out. (Sorry…making you work.) LOL
2. Please use at least one button on your card. (Use as many as you like...but there has to be at least one.)
3. Please have stitching of some kind on your card. You can use a sewing machine, hand stitching or faux stitching using a pen. 4. Once your card has posted to your blog, please send your card to a friend telling them how much you appreciate them and that you are “sew” glad you are friends! If you want, you can tell us in your blog post who is receiving your card and how special they are to you.
5. I know there is a lot of cute DP and stamps out there with a sewing theme, so if you have those go ahead and use them. But if you don’t have them, don’t fret-they are not necessary. Just please have the sentiment, button and stitching on your card for sure...."
