March Calendar Girls


Ok, so I'm late, again?  The 28th slipped away from me, and by the time I realized it was "posting" day, I was away from home, my card and my computer.  If only my phone would allow me to post on my blog, but it's stubborn and won't let me post my pictures through my phone :(  This month we had to make a card with NO designer paper.  Not a huge challenge, I have lots of stamps, lots of different color inks, should be a piece of cake.  I thought of using one of my many background stamps, but I really wanted to put this Taylored Expressions die to work.  Tami also said to "use whatcha got".  I won this last fall during a release party and though I've put it through the die machine a few times, this is the first actual card.  I've made it for my husband's grandmother who turns 85 next Tuesday.

It is a gorgeous card! That die is great and I love the doily behind the sentiment. Very, very, pretty and so nicely done.

Oh Linda, these were the perfect things to use on the no DP card! I really like that die cut...gives great texture. You coupled it with the perfect sized sentiment. Great job!
