Magnetic "Tag" Calendars

Whew,  I finished!!!  YAAAAY!!!  Do you  remember I mentioned in a previous post that I spent at least 17 hours crafting the other weekend?   Here's what I was working on.    As my own Christmas tradition, I enjoy enclosing a little gift with my Christmas cards and I must say this image by Dandelion Design was a life saver.   I knew I wanted to make some kind of calendar gift.  While tossing some ideas around and not coming up with anything, I saw this image on the Dandelion Designs blog.   Oh, I thought, 'WHOA, THAT'S IT!!!'  This was a "must have."  Thanks Lynn for coming up with this cute idea.   The mini calendars fit SO PERFECTLY!!!   I got the other image too.
 
Other items I used were Sizzix "Tags, Rounded" dies, Copics, embossing folder with Cherry Blossom design by Cuttlebug for the pink piece, ribbon by Offray, strip magnet affixed to the back, and distress ink. 

Here are 54 of them.....

Here one with a red kimono....
 And one with a purple kimono.....
I'm entering the first tag in the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious - "Anything Goes"
Love to Create - "Challenge 45 - Anything Goes"
