I'm a CALENDAR GIRL

Hmmm....what's a calendar girl, you ask?

We are a group of SCS'ers that decided to support each other's blog and set out a monthly challenge to one another.  See my sidebar for all the "Girls".

We were 'asked' to make a card depicting our month.  I am Miss March and chose that because it is my birthday month.  It also is the month that makes me think of Spring and how the NorthEast is about to rejuvenate itself!

We were also challenged to use our newest tool - mine is a ScorPal, so decided on a card that needed to be folded!  I love this SpringFold card!  It looks so fancy, but is soooo easy!!

Thirdly, we needed to use our favorite embellishment.  I will be honest and tell you that mine changes almost daily, but lately I have been in love with these little half pearls! 

Thanks for stopping by,
Feel free to leave some love at the other Calendar Girl's blogs....
Huggz,
April

Awesome card, April! You've really done a STAND-UP job... even used a card fold that stands up! I love it! I've never made one of them. May need to give it a try!

April, this is so fantastic! I admit to being intimidated by my Scor Pal (I'm spatially challenged LOL) You have inspired me to give it a go sometime. The image is cute and your colors are perfect for March here in the NE. Great job!

Miss March you sure did your month proud!
Love the soft colors you chose to use and that sweet adorable image certainly spells 'spring' in my mind.One of these days I must try this intriguing card-fold that you used...it looks complicated though! It sure makes the image pop!! Love it!!!:o)
