"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

The card on my blog today is actually the card I would have made for the July Calendar Girls Challenge.  However, last month, I mistakenly followed the challenge for August and posted my August card.  So now that it is August, I am posting my card for the July challenge. 

The July challenge was:   

"Cute and Cuddly". The cuddly being a huggable moose, or a raccoon, or a bear, etc. 

Here's my cute and cuddly:

I used Whisper White and Baja Breeze card stock. The DP is retired from SU! and so are the felt snowflakes.  I embellished the snowflakes with silver cording and a rhinestone both from SU!  The image " Bundled Up Mike" is from Whippersnappers and colored with Copics and SU! markers.  

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

Dueling Darlings August Challenge

The Darlings are at it again.  The Duel this month was hostessed by Terry, for the Dazzlers and LJ for the Divas.  The Dazzlers received a great kit from Terry!  Our theme for this month and the kit contents were:

"Fall Kick-off"

LJ suggested to put together kits with a fall kick-off theme.....not specifically football, but anything that would start the fall season. I chose to put together a school themed kit for you all to work with, I hope you all enjoy it!

In your blog post, please share with us a favorite memory of the fall season!

Your kits include:

Image: Stampabilities: House Mouse "Smarty Pants" stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Recollections: "Back to School" paper pack
Bakers Twine: Target dollar spot
Candi Dots: Craftwork's
Ribbon: Michaels

Here's my creation:

And I even did a little on the inside!
