Is this January?

I know it is February : ) I forgot to pull off the first page of the calendar when I took this picture today. I created this nifty card/calendar for Christy's "Spring Toss" as well. I've been assigned 5 ladies to send something with a "Spring" theme to. I only had a couple of these calendars so I will send some of the ladies this card and some of the ladies the gum holder. I wanted to keep back one of the calendars so I could make a card for my dear ol' Dad!! So Dad, if you are lurking you'll be getting a sneak peek at your next weeks card. : )

I had been wondering why I bought these mini calendars from my NSLSS (not-so-local-scrapbook-store) : ) It is a wonderful store about 1.5 hours from me. As the New Year drew close and I had still not used them I began to think I'd wasted the whole .50 cents they cost me heeheehee.

This card is 4.25 x 9.25" and fits into a standard business envelope. I used a couple of little darlings by House Mouse. The "Sweet" sentiment is from The Angel Company, The delicious black and white papers are from Doodlebug Designs, Inc. I used a Sizzix die "Top Note" to cut out the image - which by the way - I do not own the stamp, my friend GeminiJen, in Indiana stamped off some and sent them to me - simply because she is a peach!: ) . I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them. : )
