Easel Card - Avonlea Calendar

Hi Peeps!

My apologies for being so late.... the Run For the Cure went well! I had a great time, the weather held up and I'm proud I contributed to a great cause. The winner of the card set is......... my grandma! :)

I've been really busy with life lately and I've been working on Christmas gifts and cards but I've kinda been put at a stand still because I've run out of adhesive!! The order I placed earlier this week finally got shipped today and I'll be back in business sometime next week :)

In the meantime I made something I've had in mind for the past little while and I think it'll make a great holiday gift for someone special:

It's a desk calendar! This is the first time I've ever made an easel card, and it turned out pretty well, I think :) I used the super gorgeous Avonlea paper pack from CTMH and Smokey Plum as an accent colour. The roses are cut out of Avonlea White paper with the Cricut Artiste cartridge... but they do not look white, do they?! I inked the edges with Petal ink and they look just like cool water roses (my favourite!!!)

The calendar I made in Excel, printed all the months, cut them to size and used Notepad adhesive to make a mini notepad. I purchased the notepad adhesive a year or 2 ago on Etsy and this was the first time I've used it (sad huh? lol I knew I would need it/want to use it someday!).

Anyways, that's all for now... Happy Thanksgiving :)

Tomorrow I'm baking Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting for thanksgiving dessert :) No crafting for me!
