Painted Poppies Desktop Calendar - Customer Thank Yous

Hi everyone,

Previously I showed you the card I sent to all my lovely customers to thank them for their December orders. Today I am showing you the matching gift I made for them this month - a handy little desk top calendar, once again using the Painted Poppies stamp set.

Painted Poppies Desk Calendar Stampin Up

I bought my little calendars on Ebay if you're interested in buying some for yourself.

The stamped panel is coloured with Stampin Blends in Poppy Parade and Olive Green - I had to buy the Poppy Parade ones specially as they were one of the very few colours I hadn't yet bought.

And here are just a few of the calendars ready to be packaged and sent off to their recipients.
