Australian version of the perpetual Birthday Calendar

I have had an order for a calendar from someone in Australia and I was wanting to make one for my lovely mother in law for her birthday. Well, I had enough time for hers seeing as her birthday is is July, but because she was over at our place in California, and I was making the other one to send with her back home, I was only natural that I make 2 at the same time. Actually, make that 3, as I also finished one I was meant to send to another girlfriend of mine back in Connecticut. (dropped it off as I stayed with her for a while while visiting). Sorry it has taken me so long Rebeca :-(.

This was a great opportunity to use some new stamps I had acquired from a friend's friend who was getting rid of her stamping stuff. I do have to say I was in stamping heaven when I saw all this girl was wanting to get rid off....Do I have to even say I bought a lot of it? And I mean A LOT! So this was a fab opportunity to use some new stamps...

 Mum got to choose the design of her cover, seeing as she was there...
 Beachy summery theme for January (retired Sealife stamp set)
Lovely as a Tree stamp set used for the Woodland wonderland for the winter months...
Funky Four, Fox and Friends, and Owl Builder Punch used for this page
Printed Petals and Mixed Bunch Sets
 Changed the stamp set for the Christmas month to Come to Bethlehem and I have to say I wish I had used this one for mine. I LOVE how it turned out!!! The snowflakes are from Snow Swirled, the set I used to January in my calendar. The wise men and the snowflakes are embossed with gold, silver and pewter embossing powder. This really makes them pop off the page.

Mum liked it so much she wanted one for one of her girlfriends back home. I loved that she told me then and there rather than a few months later. So much easier doing 3 at the same time rather than at 3 different times.

Hope you enjoy it,
