I made some calendar cards for several of my friends as Christmas gifts this year. Because they were bulky and expensive to mail, I hand carried most of them to friends at various events. When I decided to make these calendar cards, I had five ladies in mind that have been a blessing to me who I knew would appreciate my efforts. They have mentored me, encouraged me, sent me care packages and answered every question that I asked. So this week I made a few more calendar cards for four of these ladies. I already sent one in a birthday package.
I stamped the center of some white cart with a few IO stamps. I made a frame for the sentiment with Sue Wilson's Ornate Oval So Glad You're my Friend. Most of the flowers were made from Cheery Lynn Floral, but I filled in with some purchased flowers I had in my stash.
I always have a variety of leaves cut in green and in white so the backgrounds are a variety of leaves from different companies.
Two of my new favorites are the Frantic Stamper Bird on a Pussy Willow
Branch and Memory Box Lavender Bunch
