Welcome to our October 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" - "Romeo and Juliet on Halloween!!"
Our hop begins today with the lovely and super talented Lynne aka Her Craftiness which may be found at The entire line-up is available just in case you get bogged down with all the holidaze and craziness as you won't want to miss a single calendar event!!!! 

Here are my days....
5 - World Card Making Day - Sandy
 I wanted a basic design for Card Making day. To celebrate, I used everything new for the is card! My new Expression 2 Cricut machine, new Cricut Jel Pens, New flower punch, New scallop dot punch!!! I was so excited to play with all my new tools. PS. I used Fancy Frames cart for my scroll background and instead of cutting it out I used the pens to draw it.

9 - Fire Prevention Day- Sandy
I just love these images. They are from Create a Critter 2, each cut at 2". The sentiment are single letters that I stamped with white pigment ink.

19 - Sweetest Day- Sandy
This is a 5x7 card. I used Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge for this card.  You can't tell but the little heart is all glittered up!

21 - Count Your Buttons Day - Sandy
This is a simple card.  I used Kate's ABCs for this card, cut at 2.5.  I used dot paper and added the black dots to make them look like buttons.

And Last but not least...
30 - National Candy Corn Day - Sandy
This image was cut from Smiley Cards, a Gypsy upload.  Can you tell I don't eat these kinds of candies?!?!  Do you know what my goof is?  If you don't, then I'm not telling, lol!!!
