Surprise! Happy Bday Lesley! (Trendy Twine Hop)

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Trendy Twine's Birthday Celebration Weekend!


Today the Design Team is surprising Lesley with a mini blog hop of our own in honor of her birthday! (Be sure to stop by tomorrow as we showcase the cards we made for Lesley's mother!) 


Now if you're here from Helen then you're in the right direction, but if you're just passing thru you may want to start at the Trendy Twine Blog Twine Blog because you don't want to miss out on the Blog Candy.

Here is the card that I created for Lesley using the wonderful Blue Berry Twine!
 
 
I have had this stamp for a few months and have always envisioned a hanging calendar, so I felt this was the perfect time to finally do it! Using paper from a Jillibean 6x6 Mini Pad, I created the frame for the calendar. I stamped the monthly calendar along with the numbers. To highlight the actual day, I stamped a green circle around Lesley's birthday. To finish the card, I used a button and Blue Berry Twine to make it look the wall-hanging calendar.


Next up on the hop is Karen
