Block calendar

   This week our challenge at Eureka Stamps is to make anything but a card. I have often wanted to try my hand at making a block calendar, so I got out pencil, set square and ruler and set to.
   The digi I used in the design is number 57701 (baroque background) and I coloured it using Spectrum Noir pencils and blanding fluid. The numbers on the blocks are as follows 0,1,2,3,4,5 on one and 0,1,2,7,8,9 on the other. The design with the months were matted onto each side of pink card so that only three pieces were required to go into the slot at the back of the container.
   Here is one of those pieces

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Ooh La La Creations - lots of folds (for the container & cubes)
   Addicted to Stamps - use a number
   The paper Shelter - make it digital
   Crafty Boots - anything but a card
   Brown Sugar - anything goes
   Glitter n Sparkle - anything goes
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes
   Crafting From the Heart - anything goes
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
