Our Calendar Girls challenge for this month was brought to us by Jeanette! And, always a hostess to have fun ideas, her challenge to us this month was...
If you’ve ever been any of the swap threads that I participate in, you know that I like holidays, normal ones, weird one, funny ones. EVERY day is worth a celebration. So, for this month’s Calendar Girl challenge, I want you to select a holiday that is CLOSE TO your own birthday and make a card for that holiday. If you need help finding holidays, check out this wonderful site.
My birthday is in June and there were several unknown, untraditional holidays in June that would have been fun to make a card for. About 2-3 years ago I bought a stamp set that I thought would make great boy cards. Sadly, that stamp set never saw ink. Well, until this challenge that it. As soon as I saw this untraditional holiday on the list, I knew I needed to pick this holiday so my lonely stamp could get some ink.
My untraditional holiday is Superman Days, June 12-15. And here is my card. (I again apologize for the quality of the picture. I tried using my iPad to get the picture as my camera is just not working but I am no good using the iPad.)
And the inside:
The stamp set ("Super Powers") and DP ("Super Hero") are both from Close to My Heart. The city skyline is a die from My Favorite Things. The inside of the card as well as the embellishments on the front are rub-ons that also came from Close to My Heart. The sketch if from Mojo Monday.
Please see my sidebar for all the Calendar Girls blogs and go check out their untraditional holiday creations. Thanks for stopping by.
