She is offering 3 of her wonderful designs, winner's choice to one lucky blog hopper that responds on each of the Calendar Girls along with her facebook page,, commenting that you hopped with the Calendar Girls.

Lynne will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner a surprise package to someone that remarks and gives bloggie love on each of the participants on your worst prom memory.

The days I chose to do projects for are Father's Day and Sunglasses Day!

My husband is a musician, so I decided to use a music theme in making a father's day card for him. I found one font with various instruments and one that is piano keys (which I didn't end up using). If you'd like to hear his music, check him out on YouTube.

I found a sunglasses svg on the BeaOriginal blog and created a shaped card using MTC. I created a glint with a 5mm crystal AB rhinestone. The sentiment I typed up using Comic Sans and Wingdings fonts.

You have come to the end of the calendar, we are so glad you could join us. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on July 13, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
