Love Card Calendar Using Conie Fong Susie Sunshine Without Balloon Left Digi

Hello friends! I hope everyone is taking time to craft.  We have been having cooler weather here for the past couple weeks; but now in the 70's.   I have friends all over US with really cold weather and even blizzard conditions.  I saw on the news there were a lot of big snowstorms causing a lot of pile ups.  It was always scary for me to drive in the snow and ice; so I am grateful that I live in Southern CA now; so I don't have  to deal with that anymore.

I created this Calendar card last month and have been having fun creating them.  My friend Vannessa Hasty created several calendar cards over the past couple years and she peaked my interest in creating some for my family and friends.  I found the general instructions from a Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers; after I had already bought some little ivory calendars on Ebay.  This tutorial provides you a link for a free calendar that you can print and cut yourself.  I used it on another two calendar cards that were white backgrounds.

I had a lot of challenges with the photos of this card; as these colors are hard to get accurate pictures.  The ribbon is more like the dress color; but I couldn't get it correct.  I apologize; but I did the best that I could.  It is purples/lavenders and blue green. 

This includes 4 images, one with and one without a balloon and then one facing right and one facing left of each of those.
