I made a perpetual calendar for my good buddy, Joel an autistic young man who loves calendars. You can give Joel any date, past, present or future (say 5-15-1955) and he will tell you the day of the week that date fell on in the wink of an eye.
I have to be totally honest, I did not come up with this idea on my own, here is the link where you can find the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. Perpetual Calendar Tutorial

I made a few changes in my card, I used Cricut Font and Basic Shapes for my numbers and Cricut Craftroom Basics for my squares. I also used a border stamp along the bottom as I did not have nor could I find any dark blue (any kind of blue) washi tape.

Next up is Krafty Kim
