SDC46 Pocket or Purse calendar

Over at the Stampotique designers challenge blog we are making a 2012 calendar for your purse or pocket.  I decided to "take the easy" route...my life has been a whirlwind and I am looking forward to some "normal" this year!  I know...right!  I used one of those cheap (under a dollar) calendars that come in a clear plastic cover ( from Michaels) and took it apart.  I stamped "I can see clearly" #6091 and "Bella" #9225 (the cute puppy paper pieced )  both from Stampotique on my dp. I did a litttle coloring with copics and distressing then printed the sentiment and year from my computer. After sewing around the edges with my machine and distressing with ink it looks a bit like leather. :)


Easy peasy uh? :)  I was going to give it away...but I think I will keep it! :)  Take a look at the WONDERFUL calendars the dt made on the challenge blog and join us if you wish to win a gc to the Stampotique store! :)  tfl
