I was so happy with myself when I finished making this card for a challenge at CAS-ual Fridays Tag You're it!

UNTIL I realized I had used a calendar for the year 2012 next year... not this year! Talk about a senior moment. Anyhow thanks to Cristina of My Paper Secret for the inspiration, where she had made tags, but for a calendar so of course she would use the coming year!

Well anyhow I still think it's a nice card and now I'm ahead of the game with a Thanksgiving card all ready for NEXT YEAR...if only I'll be able to find it!

There are two sets of very subtle scoring at the top and bottom of the card, but it's difficult to see in the photo. The tag is a die from Papertrey Ink, the DSP and card stock (Early Espresso, Baja Breeze & Pumpkin Pie) from SU as well as the ribbon. A tiny acorn was stamped on next year's Thanksgiving Day! As I mentioned before the calendar is from My Paper Secret, compliments of Cristina!

Here's my card, hope you like it too.

Nancy this is so sweet! I LOVE your tag/calendar card. Now if you sent that to me I would never even realize it was 2012, nor would anyone else I'm sure. Because as you know Thanksgiving is ALWAYS the 4th Thursday of the month... and who keeps track of dates anymore??? I LOVE your little acorn marker, and the little leaf paper accent is perfect! Well Done girlfriend! Hugs.
