My first calendar


I was asked at a recent craft fair if I had any calendars so I thought I would have a go at making some. I bought the calendars and the chipboard heart at the NEC. I usually look at things like this and wonder what to do with them but I was determined to give it a go. I covered the heart with some new paper from Dovecraft, Cupcake Boutique. and inked the edges. The birdcage is a MB die and the butterfly Joy. I added some lace and ribbon from stash and some Wild Orchid roses.
