Calendar images

The images in these two cards, (more for my father in laws present) are from the back of an Arkansas calendar.  Those little images to show you what is in the calendar are alot of times great sizes for cards, and another way to recycle :)


The image on this one is layered onto some kraft cardstock, cut out with spellbinder Square die.  I went to my stash and found 3 fall papers I liked for the background.  Sorry forgot to write down were the sentiment is from. Corner is and EK success punch. Distress inks around the edges.


This image too was layered onto cardstock cut out with spellbinder square die.  I know the bottom piece paper is K&co. but forgot what the top piece is, and I put a strip of green cardstock between the two.  Now looking at it I wish I would have added a sentiment along the top but sadly the gift is allready wrapped, no going back now.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
Hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Connie
