Thanks Carla. Adding a bit more bling, getting the calendars printed and adding them and whew! Should get them to the PO tomorrow. This will be a record for me for sure. Dang!

Question though: what can I do to the calendar file to make it not that blah beige color? Having a brain freeze here. 

I've done different things to change the color.   This time I did an overlay of color clipped to the calendar and printed it separately, so then I had to print/cut and glue on separately also.  If that made sense?

I can send you the calendar in a png file instead so you can change the color if you want.

I think ribbon or string would work, just not as stable as rings. I'm interested to see if that works if someone tries it!

Here are the pictures I promised. Once the month ends, I put it in my 3 ring binder full of atcs with the rest of the hybrid atcs. I ran into Hobby Lobby after my appointment and saw the same plate stand for $1.99.

Oh look, there's my November card!  :D  I like this stand, I might try to find one.  I have the cardboard base with the rings, and have a mini screwdriver inside the base, using it as a paperweight so it doesn't tip over.

Duh-uh, me!  Now that's so smart Mikelle! :hit-head-with-hammer:

And, I'm glad you mentioned that as all month I've been enjoying your card and especially the little turkey on the back, so cute!  And, I've wanted to tell you so. :)
(Actually, I've enjoyed ALL the months, but for some reason kept seeing this one's)

Thanks for the info Carla and that looks really nice!  Somehow I was picturing something different, this makes more sense!
I'm going to think about it.   How hard is it to punch the holes if I decide to do it myself later?

Ok, I'm taking my to the PO this morning (well oops, it's closed today? Veterans' Day I guess). Sheesh, what a battle with this printer thing but I WON!! I apologize for the delay. Hopefully you should see these in a day or two, Carla. I have taken extra care packing them up but my glue runner seems to not be the best. You may have to reaffix a calendar or two.

No worries, Dianne! I've been so confused about what is closed which day this weekend! I'll let you know when they arrive.

Please make sure i have this right...

I need to punch holes for Lei, Ann, Kelly and Mikelle.

I'm not punching holes for Tina, Dianne or Marilyn.

And Tina needs a base.

I don't need a base either, Carla. Hopefully mine will be there today or tomorrow.

I received mine yesterday too! I love looking at these little masterpieces through out the year. Beautiful work ladies, such treasures. Many thanks to you Carla!

Will the next hybrid atc challenge be after the holidays?

Yes, we'll wait until after the holidays to do another round. Maybe my crafting mojo will return by then. I think it's still in Maryland (and I moved from there over a year ago)!

That's what I figured. I think my mojo took a vacation. Maybe it's hanging out with yours! :rofl:
