Calendar Girl's blog hop - April 2013

Welcome to our April Calendar Girls' Blog Hop. Its absolutely amazing when you do a google search the interesting facts you may find. Such a find is special and unique occasions throughout the year!!! These unique holidays are our inspiration. As Neil Sedaka sang in his song "Calendar Girls" - "April, you're the Easter bunny when you smile". Yes, I know that Easter came early this year, in March actually, but Neil Sedaka sings with April as the Easter Bunny ...... can't blame the lyrics!!

The hop starts with the beautiful and very talented Kimberly. The entire line-up is available just in case you get bogged down with all the holidaze and craziness!!!!  So you should be arriving from the very talented Janet.

The Stamping Chef is our wonderful sponsor for today's blog hop and has designed three of the images that have been used in today's hop. 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, https://www.facebook.com/groups/TSCRecipes/, 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.

For my card I went with the holiday that I loved the most!!!  That's NO HOUSEWORK DAY!!!!!  Yup I would totally love that holiday to be all year long... well we can't have that but a girl can dream right?!?

I used the wonderful digi Auriel from the Stamping Chef  I just thought she was just PERFECT for this!!!
Please click the read more... for the rest of the post...


For this card I used paper from Jillibean Soup - watermelon Gazpacho Soup.  I thought a clothesline really represented well the housework day right?!?  I used some mini clothes pin that I had in my stash forever!  I used my Label 29.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  I used a Dylusion sentiment.   Just thought this was the right one as well for this card.
What do you think?!?  Would she be excused to not clean her house?  I'm thinking that her man won't care much about the house... lol

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is the fabulous Jearise. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on May 11, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
