This month our lovely hostess for the Calendar girls was Debbie...she comes up with wonderful, fun ideas and this month was no exception...This is her challenge:
JUNE 2013 CHALLENGE
Miss June: Deb
As I was trying to come up with a June theme...I
noticed the $1 stamps I always seem to pick up at Michaels and never
use. So I decided the June theme will be Dollar Days! However, I didn't
want anyone to have to go out and buy anything so...
I gathered up the UNUSED and UNOPENED $1 stamps I had and taped a sticky
note to them and put them on the table. Then I asked my youngest to
mark each stamp with a number starting with #1. She picked up the stamps
at random and numbered them for me. So the order in which you replied
to my email determines the stamp you get.
Sweet P responded first so she gets the stamp marked 1. April responded
second so she gets the stamp marked 2. And so on down the list.
(Jeanette, Terry, Linda, Kelly, Barb, Tami and Carol). I will be mailing
each of you the stamp that is yours.
The requirements for the June theme are:
1. At least two layers.
2. You must use the $1 stamp you receive on the card. However since the
$1 stamps are small you can use background stamps or other stamps to
create a background, and sentiment stamps of your own on your card as
well. But I would like the $1 stamp to be the focal point.
3. If you have any buttons, ribbons, or other embellishments that you
bought for $1 or less, embellishments that were gifted to you, or
recycled items, please use those products to embellish the card.
This is the stamp set I received in the mail from Debbie along with a cute card:
The challenge says to use at least 2 layers and I managed to do that...of course I used the stamp that she sent me...check...and the last was to use an embellishment I got for $1.00 or less. As luck would have it, I was shopping with my friend on Tuesday evening and ran across this pretty lace for .50 cents a yard...how perfect. I used stickles for the center of the little flowers on both the image and the trim. I also used am embossing folder for the background. It is a pretty simple card but I kind of like how it turned out..
Thanks so much for stopping by. Please stop and check out the rest of the Calendar girls cards as I am sure you won't be disappointed and it will be fun to see what $1.00 stamps each of them got...
Until next time,
