Thank you card With Calendar - Using CTMH Gimme Some Sugar -Cardmaking Stamps and Thin cuts

Hello friends!  How are you doing?  I created a few calendar cards last week.  I should have made it simpler; but it has been fun.  I just finished my 2nd one with two different backs so far.  I bid on eBay and ended up with 8 cream colored ones of these little calendars.  I never expected to win them all.  LOL!  

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 these calendars.  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.

CTMH Gimme Some Sugar - Cardmaking Stamps and Thin Cuts - Z4156
This paper pack is much prettier in person.  I love the Basic Shades.
