July Calendar Challenge Pages

Well I seriously didn't think I was going to get my June Calendar Challenge pages finished and July's pages started but I've managed to give myself a good talking to and here we are....


I was very taken with Jules delicate colour scheme this month and it strongly influenced by own choice of colours though nowhere near as gentle and calming! lol


I don't think I'm going to be doing much crafting over the next six months as I'm taking a City & Guilds course in medical terminology.  For starters, it's pretty full on from the look of it and secondly, it's being paid for by work so I can't afford to fail (!)  but I still plan to go blog hopping.

I LOVE LOVE the Dr Seuss pages...I learnt to read with one fish two fish and Green Eggs and Ham...fab!

And Julys page is such a different colourway but equally brilliant.

Wish I'd started these pages too.

Good luck with the studying. I'm sure you'll do well. x Will miss your artwork though.

My goodness... is there nothing you can't do lol........ Medical terminology? I'm impressed!
I'm also impressed by the way you've persevered with your calendar each month...... I never even started mine despite all good intentions! Lovely combination of colours again.
Shall miss you and your lovely work but hopefully you will be back in the not too distant future... even more wiser! Good luck!

Love June's page, particularly the sentiments, very apt and July is looking pretty good too. Oooh good luck with the course, sound interesting and difficult at the same time. xx

Heather said...

Your calendar pages are lovely and July's looks very summery. Let's hope the weather takes note! Good luck with the course - most commendable.

Sid said...

Superb calender pages, love the effects and such a very 'light touch' to the background.

Lovely, Carol - I've so wanted to join in with this but just not had the chance. Beautiful colours.

Best of luck with the course. You have my respect and sympathy, lol. I just did my last day at placement today and have one more assignment to do before I'm finished but it's been a long, hard, slog. Our poor little brains don't retain as they used to at our age :-( Hope you enjoy it! x

penibear said...

Hey, I learnt to read with Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham too!
well done for keeping it going Carol, I PHAILED miserably;))

Liking the 25th....

Karin said...

Well done Carol. I know time is short for you now, congratulations on getting so far with this, I do hope you manage to complete the year with your calendar. Wish I'd started this too.

Good luck with the course.

Ah, the Dr Seuss pages remind me of the last holiday we had in Florida with our then 2 year old granddaughters. They loved all things Dr Seuss and so did I, lol!

Love your pages too Carol. The colours are great and perfect for these particular months.

Good luck with you course although I'm sure you won't need it. Will look forward to the return of your fab artwork around the New Year (?).

Hugs
Lesley Xx

Loving your Dr Seuss pages and Julys page is terrific with the stencilling. Am sure you will do fine with the studying, but will miss seeing your artwork, xx

What?! Medical terminology?! Oh, we'll miss your art :-(
Your calendar pages are fab - I love the Dr Seuss page - my son was hooked on those books for years, I could read them without looking LOL! July is totally different but equally gorgeous :-)

Marilyn Rock said...

Carol; your chosen colors are luscious. I can see how committed you are to this project and you are obviously enjoying it! Really beautiful! xxoo

mimilove forever said...

Oh mi Gawd I LOVE the Dr.Seuss page, colors are GLORIOUS!

Now if you need any help on the Medical Terminology course give me a shout...I'm the Queen of Germoline! ;0)
(altho the amount of hospital visits with the family lately I could probably give most doctors a run for their money!)

Hope you get time to carry on crafting missus...know I'm pathetically bad at keeping up but do LOVE seeing your work!
BIG LOVES and GOOD LUCK with course!
