What - Saturday already?

Good grief - where did this week go?? Can't find a satisfactory answer myself!

This week I finished my Calendar Girls June postcard. Below is the calendar page that we used this month as our inspiration. It didn't really do much for me when I tried out various ideas with fabric so I decided to work with card stock, patterned vellum, ribbon and stamping this month. Thank goodness we only use the picture as a starting point and we don't have to replicate it - that colour scheme is not one I find attractive. There are more details here about my postcard.

During the week I also received back my Itty Bitty (three inch square) collages from a Creative Chix online exchange. I am not sure how I will display them - I originally envisaged displaying them altogether on a canvas in three rows of three but now I think I might make a little book out of them so that each collage is it's own statement!

Maria's piece came separately and was accompanied by a lovely little tag book and this sweet teddy thank you card!

Your Calendar Girls piece is really lovely - a perfect interpretation! I'm loving those 3" sqare collages too - what a lovely collection!

I am really enjoying seeing the Calendar Girls swap go past each month, it's very inspiring, even if the months do fly past too fast.
