2 year calendar & a fun game!

I have carried one of these calendars for years, I keep up with everything on these calendars! I decided I wanted to alter a new one, here's the first one I made here on SCS, yucko, how sad is that, no layers and bling, just a wheel LOL! I was totally inspired by my friend Lisa Zappa's cute ones she did awhile back, how cute is that?!!

I used the new set Bird Lover's from Crafty Secrets, this is a must have for bird lovers, so many cute birds and sentiments! The sentiment is from the CS Mini Memories set. I used the Cosmo Cricket paper pack, Gretel, I love Cosmo!!

Did ya know Cosmo Cricket is one of my friend Mish's fave paper companies? Well, it sure is ;) She's doing some fun stuff on her blog celebrating her one year blogaversary. Today she's hosting a fun scavenger hunt and she's asked me to help her out. If you want to play along and be entered for the prize drawings, check out her blog HERE. There are 13 questions that you have to answer correctly. Mish has selected 13 of her blogging friends, including me, to each post one of the answers to her questions. So if you're playing along, you've come to the right place!
Good Luck!!
The bird and branch are stamped on a tag in the paper pack with Ranger Walnut Stain and colored with my Copic markers. I put some gold Martha Stewart glitter on the little flower centers. I used my trusty tracing wheel for the faux stitching, man, love that thing, thanks Sandy and Vicki, LOL!! I did a bunch of sponging on most of the edges and the corners are punched with my corner punch. Oh, look at the pretty shell button, I got those at a thrift store for.25, WOOHOO, I stitched it with linen thread. The white rick rack at the top is vintage, I got that at the coolest antique store in Conway, I need to take some pictures of the inside, they have loads of vintage and antique fabris, trims all kinds of vintage sewing notions. Anyway, this is the first time I've used this rick rack, I was sweatin' bullets making my cut, LOL, it's so pretty IRL, it looks like it's weaved with silk thread.


I hope y'all have a happy Friday, thanks for stopping by!

THUD. OMWORD this is just GORGEOUS - way to pretty to be in the bottom of my bag, Piris! I love all the details you have put on. You know - I have my calendar in outlook these days, and on my handheld/phone - but I can't seem to give up my paper calendars...I think I feel inspired and need to make a pretty one like this! Ü

How pretty!! I love the vintage-ness (is that a word?) of this - and hey it really is vintage! I don't know how I would do with the Crafty Secrets stamps, but you make me want them! Oh, and surfing down the page made me want some Riley's too - that guy is so fun and does so many different things. Love the images you've played with here - they are different than the others I've seen, so that's super fun!
Thanks so much for sharing!
