It’s my day to post for Connie Can Crop, so I thought I’d share a project I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time using Bugaboo Stamp’s Stella Calendar images.
You’ve all heard of the Fruit of the Month Club, the Wine of the Month Club and the dozens of other monthly gift clubs. Well now there’s a Card of the Month Club, too. My version of one featuring…Stella!
Who is Stella you might ask? Well. if you look in the dictionary under cantankerous, you would most definitely find a picture of Stella there! And you might find reference to her under surly, disagreeable and ill-tempered as well. Stella is older…old enough to have an opinion about everything and no qualms in sharing it with you, whether you wanted to hear it or not! And here’s what I did with this outspoken lady:
When I was young, about 7 or 8, I got a card in the mail from a Secret Pal. I was thrilled to get a card like this and racked my brain trying to figure out who sent it. At that age, it didn’t occur to me to check for a return address or examine the handwriting for clues. The following month, another card arrived. The next month brought a third and so on until I got the 12th card when my Secret Pal revealed herself to be my aunt.
Now, about this card bundle; I used the calendar images to make a dozen cards, one for each month, that a woman “of a certain age”, like myself, would appreciate. If you’re interested in seeing the sentiments on the cards, just click on each image and, you’ll be taken to the gallery.
As I mentioned before, this card bundle has been on my “to-do” list for a long time. I had such fun making them I don’t know why I waited so long to get started but better late than never as they say. Unless it was Stella and then she’d say, “you’re not getting any younger, ya know.”
Before I go, I want to remind you about Connie Can Crop’s monthly challenge. This month the theme is, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” You can find all the details about it right here.
I also submitted one or more cards to the following challenges:
