Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your unique card making projects!!!!!

We do have blog candy which is a 2012 Monthly Planner for you along with a special treat today just for stopping by and remarking on each our blogs to keep track of all the hops you are participating in along with all the new occasions to make your new cards!!!

My projects for you today include the following events: January 4th - Trivia Day. For my card, I went to the internet and googled "trivia" which gave me the front of my card. Background paper is cut from Generation Tech Stack. The inside of the card, I added some scrappies along with giving the information regarding trivia day!!!!

My second card for you is Martin Luther King Jr. Day which is January 16th. I stamped a butterfly from Jenni Bowlin Studio and then colored with my Prisma pencils. I also added the word "Dream" from Studio 112 which was inspired from Martin Luther King's speech, "I have a Dream" but it was made into a notecard for a special friend!!!

My third card is for National Popcorn Day is January 19th - what a great date night, movie and a box of popcorn to share! The background was cut from The Snack Stack. Doesn't the popcorn look yummy, extra butter just as I like it!! The popcorn box was cut using Make the Cut and placed on a black background as a pop-up card with pieces of the popcorn cut from the scraps around the popcorn box!

My fourth and final card is for Opposite Day on January 24th which is a fun event where everything you say is the opposite of what you mean!!! The front of my card, I did various Cricut cuts for night/day, ying/yang, up/down, black/white. The inside of the card, I have wished you a "unhappy opposite day" with big/little and circle/square! This is a fun event/holiday for kids as they really get into this!!!

Now, how cute would it be to send any of these cards to an adorable youngster or set up a special date night theme?

Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar for February 18th for another rendition of special events for the month of February!!! Your next stop along the way is Janet, sew check out her National Bird Day Card!

God Bless and thank you again for stopping!
