but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

May Calendar Girls Challenge

Happy Summer!!  FINALLY!!!!  Yes we have had sunshine and the grass is even turning green.  All I can say is it is about time!!!!

Our May Calendar Girls Challenge was to create a card reflecting something we wished to accomplish this summer.  And since I did not plant one single flower last summer, I know, I hate to admit it, but I didn't...I have promised myself I will get flowers planted.  My goals this next week is to get our yard cleaned up, dump a bunch of garage and plant those flowers!!!

Here is my card, which we made at our last stamp club, but oh so perfect for my flower card!!!  Card base is Early Espresso.  I also used Whisper White, Certainly Celery and Primrose Petal, all from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and check out all the Calendar Girls creations.

Hope you had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend!

Making Memories, Celebrating Moments!

It is time to get our duel on....

Kelly and Jeanette, the hostesses for this month, came up with the wonderful theme "Making Memories, Celebrating Moments!" And, WOW!, did Jeanette send the Dazzler an incredible kit!

The kit included: 
Image: Art Impressions Picture Perfect  
Designer papers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Hampton Art Flashback
And embellishments of Washi Tape and a Photo Frame from Recollections; Kathy Davis Designs adhesive pearls, KI Memories rhinestones, Me & My Big Ideas Mambi Stick (camera), and Michaels ribbon and paper clip.  

With all this Making Memories kit goodness, I just couldn't bring myself to make a card.  I decided to make a 8 x 8 scrap book page...and, here it is....

I left the photo frame empty and will crop and put a small picture in there when I use this page.  One very special, recent memory I have is from about this time last year when my oldest DD graduate from high school!  Thanks for a great theme and great kit Jeanette and Kelly.
