Welcome to our June Calendar Girls' Blog Hop. It’s 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" - "June, they’ll let me take you to the Junior Prom”. Ahhh, yes, remember those prom days, let alone the prom pictures?? I remember my Senior Prom – went with one guy and came home with another!!! I
wasn’t a very nice person and some say still not!

The first day I chose to celebrate was National chocolate Ice cream Day, what yummy day that is. Now I must confess My favorite ice cream is Black Raspberry and chocolate chunks,  LOL Any how here is my card, had to throw a little pink in there for my favorite.  

The image was cut from Cricut Alphabet on my E2 at 3.5 inches I used scraps from my enormous scrap pile to cut the 4 layers, I embossed the bottom half ogf the Kraft card stock layer ro resemble a sugar cone,  I printed the sentiment on my computer using 
candy Randy font and colored each letter a different color to match the papers added a piece of brown ribbon and done.

The next day I chose to celebrate was Red Rose Day. I love roses and have several bushes in my yard. 

For this card I cut everything except the large square red  and the square  floral mats from the CTMH Artist cartridge The card base was cut at (real Dial size) 10 x 5 inches from while card stock the red square at 4.5 x 4.5 inces and the floral at 4 x4 inches. the center mats were cut from the artist cartridge at 2.62 x 2.75 and 2.37 x2.49/ the rolled roses were also cut from the same cart at 2.5 inches. I used an ek success punch for the decorative strip. inked all the edges with a mossy green ink from MS Added a velvet ribbon  some green leaves I had in my stash of extra cuts from other projects Stickeled the roses with frosted lace and added a sentiment from My Creative Time "Bloom Where You Are Planted" 
And here is apicture of some of my "Don Juan" climbing roses.
