Year of the Sheep Calendar & Card

I got these two great surprises in the mail (so sorry for the late posting of it). It is from a very dear friend: Eunice.  Her blog is called A Star for Chiemi found here.  I always love getting these type of packages from her since they always are such creative projects. First, there is a 3-1/2" x 3-3/4" magnetic back calendar shown here. Isn't that sheep so cute? I recognize the paper: it is from My Little Shoebox - I also LOVE it!!!!
The second item received is a easel card. This size is 5-1/2" x 4-3/8". The sheep here is even more cute.  Want to see why? See the next photo:
 It's a wobble sheep............look at it go..............
 Here's a closer look at the sheep with the embossing texture on it:
 Here is the easel exposing the calendar:
