Sweet Sketch Wednesday #153 sketch (but I did turn it on it's side) and the Crafty Hazelnut's Chrismtas challenge to create a project using traditional Christmas colors (red and green). It turned out a little differently than I had planned, but I think it's growing on me. The calendar image was a bit more involved than I had anticipated. The main stamp and the calendar additions set (month names and year numbers) are from Clear Dollar Stamps (from their clearance section I believe). But once I got into the set, I discovered that it didn't have all the numbers for the dates, so I had to dig out an Inkadinkado set I got a while ago in a big sample pack. I used the Christmas tree from PTI's "Places, Please" and a small circle from their "Simply Stationery" set to draw attention to Christmas day. The border die is from PTI and I used the leftover pieces from the inside of the die to create the tab on the left hand side of the main panel.
