The hop starts with Laura ( You won't want to miss a single calendar event not to mention the weddings, graduations, birthdays -- ok, you get the idea!!!!  On to my projects...


Rather than create a card with a camera in it, I decided to do one of my favorite things...and add a photo to my card projects. It adds a nice personal touch. I like to use photos on my thank-you cards. Below is a thank-you card I made for guests at my daughter's Princess bday party.
Then, I took a cute photo and a window stamp and some floral embellishments to make this simple card for my girl's grandparents. Grandparents LOVE photos...
For my son's school, I helped organize their Dance and Graduation. For those events, vendors and some parents donated free items as give-aways. I took a group photo of the students at their dance and used that to cover the Thank-You card.
Just adds a nice touch...

Did you know that June is Fruit and Veggie Month? ... I didn't....Summer time is my favorite time for produce, like melons and strawberries!  I made this card previously, using paper that my daughter decorated with markers.  

Ok, below is a card I made special for this hop, but it needs some help!  To win a $15 Michael's gift card, leave me a comment with sentiment and embellishment ideas...
If, chooses you...I will finish the card using your idea!  Thanks!

Have Fun...and continue hopping on to the next amazing Calendar girl...

The line-up for JUNE includes:

Laura: <--A great place to start our hop!
Angie: <-- You are here.
Lynne: <-- Your next fabulous stop.

Great cards! I love having the one berry out of the basket for a miss you card. You could say something like - life is berry sweet right now but 1 berry is missing you.

Sentiment- You are berry special, or You are berry sweet. Bling Gold Gelly roll pen for seeds on berries. Some pearls on the folded side of the card 3-5 depending on size.
I love your card that you wanted ideas for. It is so cute. You are berry cute would be another good sentiment.
I like that you personalize the cards with photos. They are all so special. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
