Calendar - post one

This is going to be a long post, so sorry about that. I've been seeing lots of sketch challenges, but I've been meaning to finish this calendar that I started - I am putting it in the My Creations Flip Stand Album. It has 12 page protectors, so when it's opened, there is a page visible on each side. What I made today are the pages that are opposite the calendar pages. They are basically 6"x6" cards. I used White Daisy for the bases, and different paper packs for the colors. In addition to the sketch challenges, these are the challenges I am entering these cards into.

Heart 2 Heart - What's Old is New
Opus Gluei - Out with the Old, In With the New
Simon Says - Something New
Clear it Out - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Anything But a Card
Word Art Wednesday - Uplifting Sentiment

The "new" thing is the calendar, the old is the paper packs that I'm using the scraps from!
