2015!


Working on building up my stock for craft fairs and decided it was time to make some calendars. Last year I made some wall hanging ones like my plaques and I may make some more of those but I decided to try some easel ones first. The pretty image is from an art pad by LOTV. The dark paper is a freebie from Making Cards and the lilac paper is from an old Henbru Lane pack by Papermania. I used an MS border punch and some Anita's ribbon. The wooden bird and butterfly have been coloured with DI Dusty Concorde.
