Clear Dollar Stamps Year Round Calendar

Hello and welcome to the Clear Dollar Stamps Year Round Calendar blog hop!  If you've arrived here from Lorie's blog you're on the right track.  If not and you'd like to start with "January" click here.


Our hop today is about inspiring you with different ways to use the Clear Dollar Stamps Year Round Calendar digital set for fun gifts and maybe a little something for yourself too.
This wonderful set sells for $3.50.

I chose to work with the month of May, you might be able to see in the picture that there is a darker yellow circle on the 14th of the month for my daughter's 12th birthday.  I sized my calendar page to fit in my vintage Rolodex V546 which takes 4"X6" file cards.  I colored the flowers and background with Copic markers Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11, B0000, BG000, B21, B23, BV0000, BV000, BV01, G28, G40, G82.


Here's a top view of the calendar page and the Rolodex file it's in. 

There's a prize package being offered by Clear Dollar Stamps so be sure to leave a comment so you're in the drawing to win this versatile digital stamp set!  There will be two winners -

The next stop on our hop is the fabulous Dawn!
