Easel Calender Card

  Hello and welcome, Hope your enjoying this beautiful day. For today I have an Easel Calendar Card to share with you. 

Since I had a few sets of little calender's I decided that I would use one and make a calendar/ card for my sister's birthday. 



Started the calendar with May, her birthday month and stamped a little heart on her special day.

I used the bird from the Friendly Hello stamp set and also use the Friendly Hello Designer Series paper. (Love It so much)

I colored the bird in two shades of yellow alcohol markers. Colored the flowers in two shades of lavender markers and the branch and leaves in two shades of green. Added Wink of Stella to the center of the flowers.

Used Old Olive cardstock for the Easel and stamped the Birch Background stamp from Stampin Up on the front and the back.

I didn't like the silver colored staples so I opened up the stapler and colored a few of them with a lavender alcohol marker. Since the lavender was so light you can barely tell but I was happy that it worked. 

I picked up the calendar at the Dollar Tree. Thought it needed a little something else so I added a yellow ribbon.

Now if I can just keep my sister from visiting my blog until after her birthday. Going to have to tell her no peeking. 

Hope you have a great day and thank you for taking the time to visit. 

Stay Safe & Stay Crafty my Friends!
