288 pieces of card stock & 960 stamped images later..

Can you say... Oh my aching hands... back... arms... eyes.. neck.. Yack.. The good news is that after 288 pieces of card stock and 960 stamped images later... my calendars are done... finished.. fin'e'to.. Well that is except for a little assembly but trust me.. by Saturday afternoon they will all be together. Here's the official unveiling. Tell me what you think.

All images (except when otherwise noted) are stamped in black stazon on Whisper White Card Stock. These are 5x7 calendars purchased off of eBay. I didn't pay attention and these are printed on white confetti card stock. I would have preferred solid white. But the speckles add a little dimension.
