It's All About the Green Blog Hop- Day 2- CTMH's Event Calendar

Welcome to the "It's All About the Green" Blog hop!!!!  Thanks for joining us for DAY TWO!  If you missed Day One---- CLICK HERE--- to check it out :)



I am happy to be a part of this wonderful group and hope you are enjoying this TWO DAY hop!!!!! 


Today I'd like to share with you part of my Event Calendar.  I just love this little calendar that CTMH has for us!  It is perfect to record all those important dates to remember like Birthdays and Anniversaries.  I keep mine in my office, next to my regular calendar.  My intent is to send out birthday cards to everyone whose name is on that little calendar, but I have not been very good at it lately :(


The March page features CTMH's Friendship (the February Stamp of the Month) and a shamrock cut from "A Child's Year" Cricut Cartridge.
First, I created the background pattern using two of the stamps from the Friendship set.  I then sanded the image a bit to tone down the brightness of the color and sponged the edges.  I added the cute little shamrock and sponged the edges of it to give it a little bit of dimension. 




This is the full Event Calendar page.  I used the Holiday Hoopla stamp set to stamp the shamrock in first and second generation randomly on the page.  


Supplies:
All CTMH unless noted
D1453 Friendship
D1382 Holiday Hoopla
White Daisy, Olive Carstock
Sweetleaf, Olive ink
Cricut- A Child's Year
