Two more for 2010.......




Calendar pages that is.......

Here's March, I've used one of Nina May's new digital images for this month. (Click on the Paper Cupcakes picture in the side bar to take you to Nina's online shop.)
How pretty is this watering can filled with blooms.
In the most part I've used scraps of dp and card for this calendar but the strip of dp with the bird on is a new one!!!
I picked it up at the local Scrapbook store - I've a stamp with a bird just like that and also received recently, a digi image of a Caterpillar exactly like the one you can see here. Love them both!


For April I've used a stamp that I've had for ages. This cute bunny peeking out from behind the pot of flowers is stamped then coloured with Prima Pencils and OMS.
I've also used the Spellbinder Fleur De Lis die and some bright orange Basic Grey dp to sit the bunny on.
The flower is cut using two size dies from the Blossom Spellbinder and ageing the edges a little. Three self adhesive yellow gems for the centre and some Fern punched with the McGill punch finish this off. A strip of ribbon tied around the green stripe dp from my off cut box and that's April.
As always the pages are adhered to a piece of pale yellow card.

As I'm typing up this post it's getting darker and darker here and thunder is rumbling around. Think I'd better get this finished and turn off the computer........ just in case.

Thanks for dropping by, til next time.............
