Desk Calendar part 2

Hello again! Here are the first 3 months of my 2019 desk calendar.  Did these New Year's Eve and really hoping to get back up there soon to finish the year!

Took a little different approach to the colors for these 3. I'm still adjusting to the color change and not all that familiar with what goes together since I don't spend much time up there. I did grab Painted Harvest because I know it can work with any colors. Then I thought for each month, what color goes with January? February? March?? January brings cold and snow, so blue. February, Valentine's Day so red &/or pink. March, St. Patrick's Day so Green.

The calendar this year is brownish day numbers and Gray month numbers. For January I used Gray Granite for the flower center, Blueberry Bushel for the 'january' and center petals, and Balmy Blue for the background petals. Random dots stamped between in all 3 colors, full strength to off once and twice. Simple White Sheer Ribbon under the calendar. Background cardstock is Blueberry Bushel.

Red is not usually my thing and I had forgotten how much I like Poppy Parade! Card base and accent layer are that. February is stamped in Poppy over the gray printed 2. Background flower layer is Flirty Flamingo, center petals Poppy Parade. Centers this time are Smoky Slate. Random dots again in between in various strengths. Light edging on the calendar and background layer with Smoky Slate. Ribbon is Poppy Parade striped. Calendar is attached with dimensionals over the ribbon.

St. Patrick's Day isn't all that special to us either, but I really love these green flowers. Who knew, green flowers would look so cool! Call Me Clover is an In Color and the base color and 'march' color. Also center petal color. Center is Smoky Slate again and the background petal is Granny Smith Green. Random dots again around the flowers. Note on the 17, the set has small stamps to mark special days. White Classic Weave ribbon knotted on this one.

Here is the view of them on my desk, from the front and then from the site. The red ribbon peeks out just a bit behind the blue, but that's OK!

Thanks for stopping by! Product details and shopping links below!
