Altered Calendars

Oh, what a wonderful day I had today. I got to stamp! I can't believe how long it takes me to make anything though! Every time I looked at the clock, another hour had passed and I had only finished like 1 card! But, I had fun and felt like I got a little of my creative juices back.

My friend went to India last year, to visit her in-laws. She brought back these handmade calendars. I decided to alter it for this year instead of putting it in the trash when the year was through. This is what the original looked like.  The calendar was pretty big - you can see it tore the paper where I took it off:

I've been thinking about the outgoing SU! In-Colors a lot lately and wanted to use them since I just got a stack of DSP and wanted to use the ribbon. I'm going to miss the colors. Truth be told, I like them better than the current colors. I'm already looking forward to the next set of In-Colors :)

So, I made one for myself and one for a co-worker. I told her I'd make one for her since she also received one of these from our friend. I'm going to keep the Concord Crush one and give her the Pear Pizazz one. I like how they both turned out and I'll be able to use them every year by just changing the little calendar.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
