Inspired by my precious MIL

I was trying to show my mother-in-law how to stamp on some calendar pages with this stamp set. We wanted the stamping to be light so that it wouldn't cover up the dates on the calendar pages. I inked up the stamp with SU markers in Real Red, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. I told her we needed to stamp off a couple of times before we put it on the calendar so the first time I did it I stamped off on some scrap paper before I stamped on the calendar. The image on the scrap paper was sooooo pretty so the next few times I stamped off on some white cardstock so that I could use the images for something else. Doesn't it look great on this card? The only down side of doing this technique for a calendar is this image is quite large and it takes a long time to color the stamp with markers 12 times. One calendar would be enough of that for me so I'm not sure I could do that for bunches of calendar gifts. It does look very nice on the calendar though, doesn't it Barb?

I hope your Thanksgiving was marvelous. I know mine was. The good Lord has blessed me tremendously. Thanks for stopping by to check me out.
