Calendar Girls June 2012

Here we are again with our monthly calendar girl challenge...this month the lovely Michelle saved me by coming up with a theme. We were in the process of moving and I was way behind ....I am so grateful Michelle...I truly thank month I will pick the challenge with the switch...but in the meantime this is what Michelle challenged us with:

June Challenge...

For most of us, June is the month that starts summer...many events are ending, graduation, weddings, flowers blooming and family vacations.

My challenge is...using SC 388 (found in the SC thread), with any color combination create a card that best suits your beginning to summer, or summer plans. It could be a trip you are planning, a flower that is blooming, a wedding you are attending, or a graduation gathering. Whatever it could be...have fun creating a card to go with it.

Michelle (the "new" 2012 Miss June)

As I said above we were in the throes of moving so that is how my summer started....what fun

Here is the card I came up with...

The card sketch is a 6x6 but I made my card a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 size...I used the Mo Manning image slumber party and thought it gave the idea of moving. I hand wrote the sentiment. The pretty black and white ribbon was gifted to me and the bag background dsp is Imaginise...I had to remove and reattach the main image and it made a mark on my card....since I didn't have time to remake it I had to photo it and post it...

If you have a chance, please stop by the rest of the calendar girls blogs and check out their summer cards..

Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,

Oh, this is too cute! I love that image....... and it is definitely what is happening in your life this summer!

I know some of what you're going through, since we moved a year ago this week - into a much MUCH smaller house. I wish you well. Hope you will find a place for everything that is important to you and that you'll have the strength to part with those things that aren't that important.

Such an adorable card!

Perfect sentiment for your current situation and a great idea to use the image in a different way.

I do hope that your new place is feeling more like 'home'. It really is where the heart is.
