You all probably realize it it the twenty eighth and are wondering about my title.

Well, today is posting day for the Calendar Girls and Tami's challenge was (in her words):
Our October Theme
We are all about the month of October! I have three little challenges for the girls this month.
It is the tenth month of the year, so please have exactly ten ( 10 ) items on your card. No more, no less! The ten items do not include your card base. Your image stamped on a piece of card stock is counted as one item.
Our due date is the 28th. So, that is going to require two ( 2 ) circles needed on each card and a minimum of eight ( 8 ) different colors.
Are you scared yet?! LOL Start taking a peek….there are a lot of different elements and colors on our cards! I am so looking forward to what you all create, as I do each month.

I will now show you my math skills

Two circles:
1) behind bird
2) with sentiment (GIVE THANKS does show up better IRL)

Eight colors:
1) brown
2) olive
3) lt green
4) yellow
5) burnt orange
6) blue
7) lt prawn
8) dk orange

Ten items:
1) and 2) base layers
3) and 4) leaf panels
5) and 6) sentiment and scalloped circle
7) leaves
8) ribbon
9) sun ~the yellow circle
10) bird

I hope the other Calendar Girls had as much fun with Tami's challenge as I did. And, I hope you will stop by their blogs (found on my left sidebar) and check out their math skills!

Thanks for stopping by!
