We have a super sponsor this month - The Stamping Chef,, who has graciously offered 3 digis of the lucky winners choice who comment on the Design Team Blog at become a follower.

For Thank a Mailman Day I made a card for my mail lady. I used a digi that I got for free from being a fan of Fresh Brewed Designs on Facebook! I printed the digi directly on the card, colored it in with Crayola markers (cause I still can't find my Prismacolor pencils), poked a few holes to add some flowers, added some 7mm bling to each corner from my supply shop, and a Thank You stamp from Stampin' Up.

My other day was Random Acts of Kindness Day. I am in an amazing group on Facebook called Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) in which we send each other mostly cards, but sometimes other things. I thought I would make a nice card to randomly send someone in the group. Here it is:

The bracket svg I got here. The sentiment is from the Hot Air Balloon Collage set from TPC Studios. I then added a button (which I colored with ink) and a charm (attached with a brad) both from that I have received from people in the RAK group. The 7mm clear bling and the 5mm light brown bling are from my supply shop.

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Vicky! Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on March 9, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
