Calendar 2015

This week it is the Showcase Week on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Monthly Challenge Blog.  This is when we showcase cards/creations that have been entered into the Monthly Blog Challenge, entered into the Monthly Facebook Challenge, shared on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group or extra items made by the Design Team members.

Here is an extra item I have made:
 Here is a calendar for 2015 that I have made for a present.  I have used an MDF heart shape I got in a Michaels Store in Philadelphia.  I have covered the heart shape with some paper, sanded around the edges and then inked with Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet distress ink.

The image I have used for my calendar is by the ever so talented Ching-Chou Kuik and it is called "Shih Tzu" and it is available from her Etsy Store along with another 75 wonderful images.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers.
To finish off the calendar I have added some lace, beads threaded through wire, flowers, pearls, organza ribbon and some Veletta Textured pink ribbon 25mm from Buckwell Craft Supplies.

I am entering this calendar into the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes and/or warm and cozy
The Pink Elephant - Anything goes
Not Just Cards - Anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
