The Secret Word is.....

Oh, I will share the secret word with you in just one moment...

But first let me tell you about the challenge for the card on my blog today. The challenge came from Jeanette and was as follows: "Who loves a secret? I know I do! Let's have a secret ONE-WORD challenge. 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." I received my word from Michelle and my secret word was....

"WILDERNESS"

And here is my card...(click on the image of the card to get a better look at the sentiment. Sorry it didn't show up better.)


I used Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke CS. My ribbon is Early Espress from SU! The tree image is from the SU set called Lovely as a Tree and is stamped in Always Artichoke. The wolf image is stamped in Chocolate Chip and the sentiment in Early Espresso. Both are from the SU set called "In Wilderness." I added a photo corner punch in Crumb Cake with an antique brad.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the Calendar Girls' "secret word" creations on their blogs. See my sidebar for a listing of their blogs.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Tee Hee! I love your word! Wilderness! Though you live in a huge city, when I think of Alaska, I think of WILDERNESS...... so this word makes me think of you. Perhaps that is why you were able to create such an amazing card with your secret word. I love the rustic feel and hat awesome image and coordinating sentiment. Great color choices, too!

I'm so glad you're a Calendar Girl with me!
