Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, here's the daffodil on my March calendar page. I just LOVE having these cuties perched up on my stamping table where I can see them :)

Naturally, I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored her with Copic markers, then cut her out. The layout is basically the same every month, but I flipped it this time. Simple layout and I need to keep the embellishments to a minimum so they'll hang properly on the stand. See that lacy border that she's on? It's a brand new Die-namics die cut - Dizzy Border. So very lacy!! I love it!! I'm using the 2011 downloadable calendars now, obviously, but I've started switching them out at the end of each month for the 2012 version. So come January, I'll have my 2012 calendar done! I'm mounting just the calendar with repositionable tape so it comes off easily. The month tab was done with the Rounded Banner Die-namics die and the birthstone added.

I have some daffodils up about 6" now and this little cutie reminds me that before I know it they'll be blooming and Spring will be on it's way in earnest.



Here are the Copic markers I used:
