It's that time of the month....again....

Nope....not what you might be thinking.  BUT, it is time for my monthly Calendar Girl post!!


This month, Carol was our hostess!  Here is what she offered up:
The month of June brings many, many things...it is the beginning of summer for most areas...it is associated with weddings, graduations, picnics, swimming, VACATIONS...a whole bunch of wonderful things...so my task for you should you chose to accept, is this:

1. Make a card or a 3D item or whatever you would like and base it around something that you enjoy doing or plan on doing this summer...ex: a vacation, camping, family picnic, swimming, family reunion....you get the idea...
So, above is my card! A simple card, but it really conveys my summer...lol
2. Write a short ditty about why you like or are looking forward to the theme you have on your card, when you post...
I love summer and what says summer better than a cold drink in hand....the tropical umbrella is always a bonus!  Not sure I will actually get to a real beach this summer, but love this House Mouse image that one of the gang gifted me a while back.
3. (This part is optional)...
Now since here in the US Memorial day is at the end of May and the 4th of July is at the beginning of July and June is smack dab in the middle of two holidays that honor our nations heros....I would like for you to send your card to either a soldier or a resident in a nursing home...(Sweet P I know you don't live in the states but I do know you love and honor the elderly and your nations heros as well)...I think that there are so many people that have shaped our lives and have stood up to protect us all... often these people are forgotten....so if you choose to take the 3rd part of this challenge (Optional of course)...you will certainly put a smile on someones face that will certainly appreciate it...


The Calendar Girls are all listed on my sidebar {make sure you stop and spread your love}...

Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
April
