I had National Nude Day, so my project has naked people on it. I made the card before really thinking about what it would be a card for.
After making the card I thought they looked like Adam and Eve and my friend Jenny agreed and so we came up with the sentiment ,"We were made for each other." I cut the people using the Cricut cart Dress Up Paper Dolls and the sun is part of a cut from Country Life. The bushes and the clouds were cut by hand. All of the paper is Stampin' Up card stock. I added Stickles to give the clouds a silver lining.

Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on August 11th for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!


  1. Cute! I thought of Adam and Eve as soon as I saw your card. Then I read your post. The sentiment is perfect. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
