Happy Friday!

Happy Friday to you! It's still cold here and I'm heading into my craft room to try and finish up some projects. This is one that I'm working on. I've got them almost all colored and ready to go. This Sunday, I'll be participating in an open house where I'll have some handmade items for sale as well as my TAC stuff. This calendar is one of the items. I found this idea on the web a year or two ago. I do that a lot, find things I love but then never find time to actually make them. Well every year I make calendars and with my new job at the Preschool this year, I just haven't had as much "free time" as I have in the past. This calendar was the perfect solution.

The size is just a regular A2 card. Each side has a season on it. The bottom of the colored cardstocks are not glued down and a small piece of cardstock is tucked under providing a stand. Hope that makes sense! First up is SUMMER:

stamps: Edge Designs & Butterfly Bits; Ink: Orangerie, L'Amore Red, Chartreuse Palette Pads

Next up is FALL:

stamps: Fall & Winter Whimsy (retired set); Inks: Noir Black & Violete Palette Pad; Colored image using Aquacolor Crayons & Niji Water Brush, skin tone is with my Copics.

Next up is WINTER:

Stamps: Vintage Santa (snowflakes) & Merriest Wishes (snowman); Inks: Noir Black Palette Pad and Summer Sky Memento Ink; Colored image using my Prismacolor pencils & OMS, pink is colored using my Copics.

Next up is SPRING:

stamps: Beautiful Day; Ink: Noir Black & Paris Lights Palette Pad; Colored birds with Aquacolor Crayons and Niji Water Brush.

Obviously, I went out of order a little as the calendar would start with WINTER. So on one side of a 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 sheet of paper (scored at 5 1/4) you would have WINTER and SPRING. Flip it over and then you'll have SUMMER and FALL. Pretty cool huh?

I hope I sell a few. If not, I'll let you know. So if you want one, leave me a comment telling me and then if I have left overs I'll go in order of requests. I'm also going to give a few as Christmas gifts! They are a nice size to have by your computer too!!

Well that's it for me today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
