Leslie don't look if you want to be surprised....

Happy New Year!!  I hope you all had a great New Years eve - ours was LATE!!  We had friends for dinner & the last of the crew left at 2am so by the time I straightened up a bit it was 3:30 when I hit the bed; I am feeling it today!!  I've had a great holidays - we flew to BC to spend the Christmas with my family; we haven't been there since 2001!!  Then when we came home I was catching up with friends who were in town & getting ready for last night - I am TIRED today!!

Yes, I'm making my calendar this year, and yes I'm late - I have January done & as soon as February is done I will pop it in the mail - my Mom was asking where it was when I was there!


I used Taylored Expressions 6x6 calendar again this year, but my calendar is only 5x5 to fit on the stand I made last year.  This year I'm paper piecing my images onto the calendar to give me more choices & all the images are little girls (yes a theme this year!!)

For January I inked up MFT's PI girl Flurry of Love (which must be out of stock) I thought this was perfect for January since I'm sure we will be getting some storms this month!  The image is stamped with mementos ink and coloured with copics.  On her scarf I used atyou spica pens and for the fur on her boots & toque I used fluff

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a wonderful day & Happy New Years!!
