Thank You Card With Calendar Using CTMH Chelsea Gardens - Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello friends!  How are you doing?  I have been creating calendar cards for the past two weeks.  I should have made them simpler; but it has been fun.  I created two of this style so far; but they are a little different.  I bid on eBay and ended up with 8 cream colored small calendars; but then I found a free print out on Splitcoast Stampers where I could create white ones.  I used the cream colored ones on 2 other calendar cards; posted on a different post.

A friend of mine, Vannessa Hasty inspired me with her fabulous calendar creations; so I had to create some of them as well.  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought the cream colored calendars.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.
