Crafty Secret's Calendar Challenge!

Good morning! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Vicki Chrisman, our DT leader, issued the DT a challenge.......to incorporate a calendar into our project. I decided to use the free downloadable calendar that Sandy is giving away on the Crafty Secret's blog. I created two collage type cards using items that represented that particular month. I used images from the Seasonal Calendar Creative Scraps.
For January's card I used the Frame It stamp set to stamp the green paper and create a sort of frame for the back of the January Calendar. The top of it was colored with Copic markers.

I added a doily, some mica flakes, and a snowflake cut from a Spellbinder's die.
For February's card I used leftover hearts that I had created using Provo Craft's Imagine machine and the Everyday Cards cartridge. I also used a doily and a Martha Stewart smaller doily.
I used another image from the Seasonal Calendar Creative Scraps . I added some seam binding and some pom pom trim.
Be sure to check out our talented DT's Calendar creations! They are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!
Off to scrub my house from top to bottom.......sounds exciting doesn't it!?

Oh, these are both so soft & beautiful! You know, if one person were lucky enough to receive these cards from you all year, they would be able to make the sweetest little albumn using just 1 photo & your card. That's actually a pretty good idea...hmmmmm
