My 2012 Desk Calendar. I am very happy with the results even though very time consuming......after making "11" for family and friends. Also made "5" to assemble and color at my SU Nov. Hostess Club party. You make 4 season card fronts on one invitational size card. As soon as I saw the new "Flower for All Seasons" set in the F/W catty I knew I had to have it for a calendar. It was perfect and fun coloring with prism color pencils while watching football with my DH
I took a picture of each season and the inside. I used my cropadile to punch 2 small holes and thread black gingham ribbon through to hold the calendar together. It worked beautifully.
The Calendar is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"....same size as standard Invitation size card.

What a gorgeous calendar design, Nancy, and I can't believe you made that many!!! WOW!!! I have never made one, but was given one last year. It sat on my desk for 1/2 a year, then it ended up in my purse when I needed it, and there it got left --and how I LOVE to pull it out when I need a calendar when I am out and about -- A person really should have 2 -- one for desk and one for purse!!! LOL!!! Great project!!! So cheerful and nicely done!!!

Wonderful calendars, I love the ribbon to hold it open. Love the stamps you used and I was going to ask where you got the calendar and now I know, TFS

Oh, my! Just look at all these beautiful seasons! How wonderful that you used this set for your calenders. I love it! You're very industrious to have made so many but I know how much they'll be appreciated!
Oh, Nancy, these are just wonderful! I love the colors of cardstock and pretty colored design for each season! The ribbon closure is a fabulous idea! The one you sent last year has received so many compliments from family and friends!
Wow--what a production! I love what you've done, though, and as the recipient of last year's desk calendar, I can say that these are super useful--just the right size and it's wonderful to see more than one month at a time. Plus, it's a beautiful piece of art on my desk.
