Calendar Girls December Challenge

Yeahhh! It's that time of the month for the Calendar Girls to reveal their challenge...
Who are the Calendar Girls? ♥  You can check them out here:

Look what our dear Jeanette had in mind for this month....that woman is a GENIUS I tell ya! *wink*

 "Who loves a secret?  I know I do! Let's have a secret ONE-WORD challenge for the month of December. This is how it will work. Each Calendar Girl will come up with a one-word challenge for the Calendar Girl who follows her on the list. It can only be ONE WORD, but it can be any word (glitter, three, apple, blue, holiday, sponging, friendship.... whatever word you choose!) Then secretly email or PM that ONE WORD challenge to the next person on the list and she will create a card that in some way represents that word. On December 28th, she will post to her blog a picture of her card and the ONE WORD secret that she has used. Because it's a busy time, please email or PM your ONE WORD to your secret partner no later than the 28th of November so she will have ample time to create during the busy holiday season. Okay? "
So as not to confuse anyone:

Jeanette will send a word to Kelly
Kelly will send a word to April
April will send a word to Terry
Terry will send a word to Barb
Barb will send a word to Carol
Carol will send a word to Michelle
Michelle will send a word to Debbie
Debbie will send a word to Paola
Paola will send a word to Tami
Tami will send a word to Jeanette

This is the inside of the card....Noticed what I used as a golden strip for the inside of the card?
Yup! the gold sticky strip from a Ferrero box of chocolate that was opened
in front of me as I was creating and...voila'! Another recycling idea was instantly born...LOL

 Final result:
If you observe the first photo posted, you can compare it to this one and see that something was added to the card....I thought it needed something and this morning I added some golden baubles and a cute lil red and gold star. I hope you can see how beautiful this designer paper truly embodies lots of joyful cherubs and heavenly stars....

Would you like me to reveal the secret word given to me by lil dj??  It's about time eh??  ♥
The special word Debbie kindly gifted me with is  ♥ CELESTIAL ♥
and I simply LOVED her choice! ♥ Thank you Debbie .

I didn't want to use any blue (sky) background though....I chose to use one of my favorite colors instead (dark red) ....hope you like the result.

Can't wait to hop along and check what all the other Calendar Girls' words challenge were!!

Blessings to all!!

November SOTC Challenge

Hello wonderful peeps, I have a different card for you to view today...
                                      it's a round GIRL card!...specifically a TEEN's card...
November SOTC hostess, Maryann, asked for us to shower her with girls cards in honour of her
14 yo grandaughter's birthday which occured last November.
 (I know I know...made this card in December instead!) *sigh* 
Maryann also requested for something 'twisted' incorporated on the card...such as twine or a twisted placed image etc... well folks that's the part I forgot to implement....
yet I can easily say that my card DOES twist from side to side
so there! *wink & smile*
I am sticking by this version....hoping that IT counts...LOL *wink*

                                            Above it's a peek of the inside of my card...

I absolutly LOVED inking and coloring this
sweet image from Mo Manning...
Will definetly work with more Mo Manning's
beautiful stamped images in the future. ♥ Love them! ♥

Sakura Gelly roll was used to add a bit of shine and sparkle to the teens outfits.
  Hoping that whomever will receive these cards in the swap,
 will enjoy them as much as I did creating them :o)
