"I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Calendar Girls Challenge

There is a great little world out there...it's a website called splitcoaststampers.com (SCS). And this wonderful, creative world is filled with awesome papercraft ideas, projects, sketch challenges and color combinations.

Also in this creative world is a great group of crafters called the Calendar Girls. Each month one of the girls, gives the rest of us girls a challenge. Miss March challenged the group this month to create a card using a sketch (layout) challenge and color combination of our choice. However, the sketch and color choices were found on SCS in some of their challenge threads. Each sketch and color combination are given a number. We had to pick our sketch and color combination based on numbers in our birthdate. Great challenge Miss March!!!

My color combination is Ruby Red, Blush Blossom and Always Artichoke. My sketch is #6. That's the only number you get in my birthdate. ;) I used my tag die, a small pearl, baker's twine, scalloped punch, small circle punch, and the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to embellish my card. The sentiment on the tag is from the SU! set called "Well Scripted." And...here it is...(sorry about the poor picture quality...needed some daylight not night light. And it was taken with my phone as my camera doesn't seem to want to work.)

Thanks for stopping by. Please take a look at all the Calendar Girls creations. See my sidebar for links to their blogs.

March Dueling Darlings

Good Afternoon!!!

I apologize that I am late for the duel. However, I am finally here! The card on my blog today is for our March Duel of the Dueling Darlings. Our theme this month was St. Patrick's Day and we received a great kit from Michelle which included:

A green glitter shamrock die; desiger paper: Reminisce...ShamRock; button candy dots and ribbon by American Crafts. (There was much more in the kit but I have listed the supplies I used.) I added the sentiment which comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set from SU! I also used Black and Garden Green cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a chance to check out all the Darlings' creations...see my sidebar for a list of their blogs!
