Hostess Monday at Digital Delights

Hi everyone!  I have the pleasure of being the Hostess this week at Digital Delights.  I want to show you my take on a calendar that I saw on my team mates site - Rubber Stamping is my Game. I made it for my husband so it does not have much bling!

This calendar works for the whole year and comes with a 
variety of images, days and months.

I started with the basic elements of a side step card.

I cut slits in the Spellbinder die cuts so that the images and the months would slip into the slots.

I printed and colored all the images and used Distress Tea Dye to  color the edges of the images, days and months.

I used jewelers "O" rings to hold the days in place.  
They can be flipped over for each new day.

I used some of my favorite Digital Delights images for this calendar project:

Birthday Cake Josh, Kiss Me Pasquali, Chompers colored, Daisy Flower,
Sailor Simon, Scrubbie Ted

Mr. Gnome, Dazzling Sue, Pumpkin Kiddles,
Fall Girl, Caroling Polly

Card Recipe
Paper: Bazzill teal, SU paper pack
Markers/Ink: Copics, Ranger Distress Tea Dye
Embellishments: Spellbinders dies, Prima pearls, O rings

Challenges for this card:
Have a Great Day!
