 My first card celebrates  Sister's Day.  

I used a cut from  A Child's Year Cricut cartridge used some bright fun back ground paper for the base mat the smaller center mat was also cut with my cricut in two sizes and embossed the whit layer with tiny hearts added the tag with sisters printed from my computer and some funky floral ribbon.

My second card is for Senior Citizens Day (That would be me!! LOL)

I used  mostly scrap paper for this one I found the "Senior Citizen Texting code online and couldn't stop laughing so I had to use it. The pic of the cell phone also was an image online just printed and fussy cut it , added a bit of brown ribbon and was done.

We are offering some fabulous blog candy to a lucky winners - 
Sandy from Scrapbook Blessings will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner a surprise package. 
Laura will also be giving one lucky winner her favorite image from The Stamping Chef.. She is a new release so you will have to wait and see her... (She will be in this hop on my blog)
Just comment and give some bloggie love to each of the Calendar Girls.
