Monday GSG Challenge and More Stuff

This is for the GSG Monday challenge. Today Jessie came up with a great sketch, and here is what I came up with! I used Mark the Date along with Full Calendar as they haven't seen ink for awhile. I stamped the calendar in bayou ink, filled in the circles with soft sky ink, and hand wrote the numbers with olive marker. I adhered that to the main panel with dimensionals. I punched out the sky and olive circles, and also punched out a 1" circle to put on the sky circle to serve as a guide for piercing in a circle. I added the flower treatment and adhered the circles to the card.

In other news, my counter hit 25,000, so I am rustling up some blog candy! Also, sadly, this is my last week being in my 20's. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, it's weird. Lauren Meader is my birthday twin, though she doesn't know me from Adam!

I love this stamp, but have not seen many ways to use it. Now, you have gone and done it. Making me want to purchase another stamps.;)

The card is really cute.

I LOVE this Becky!! What a great take on Jessie's sketch! The 30s are awesome -- too bad I only have of a few more months of them, lol. Congrats on the hits - you're always an inspiration!

30's are GREAT! Seriously, WAY better than the 20's. Much better than the 40's that I'm entering in July. grr.

What a cute card! I really like how you used so may circles and also how you colored in the days instead of just numbering them... very clever!

Congrats on the hits! :D And don't sweat the 30's... they're by far the best decade yet. ;) Unfortunately, like some others have said, I only have a few months left myself! LOL
