New Years Eve and Calendar Challenge!

As 2010 draws to a close, I remember the joys and the trials but most of all, I will cherish the love and friendships. Thank you to you all for your visits, your encouragement, your hugs, and your closeness over the miles. Happy, healthy, blessed new year to you!

And now, for one of my many challenges and on-line projects for the coming 2011 year of creating:  Kate at TheKathrynWheel has again put out the challenge for monthly calendar creating, and I have joined up for the fun! Join along and check it out each month too!

Here is my January 2011:

I used spray inks, stencils, cut cardstocks, stamps, silver markers, and snowflake punches. My calendars will be created in this 8" X 8" sketchbook I found in my rubble (!) but now love.

January is one of my favorite months, even though I don't like the cold, because it is my wedding anniversary and birthday month. (More on this later...ack!) But the snow is beautiful and I LOVE snowflakes.

Happy New Year everybody! Wrap yourselves in warm arms and warm blankets and lots of love! ~Kath

Yay! Welcome to the calendar challenge for 2011 - I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun! I saw this over on Flickr and it looks really fab. Love the stencilling in the background. Can't wait to see how your calendar grows over the year. Happy new year! Kate x
