Flourishes Friday - Focus on Calendars

It's time for Flourishes Friday! Today we're focusing on the 2012 Calendar Downloads. Get all the details at the Flourishes Blog. New format this year that you're bound to love! I need a calendar handy in my kitchen that would be easy to keep clean. I found this acrylic easel type holder in my alterables stash and knew it would be perfect! The calendar sheet just slips in and the front can be easily wiped off if needed. The above shot is NOT in the holder--I wanted you to see the calendar without the glare of the holder getting in the way.

For January, I decided to use Warm Winter Wishes because I'm hoping for snow! I'm going to be retired and nowhere I have to be so let it SNOW!! Love that sweet sentiment, too, don't you? I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with these Copic Collections:

See the sleek profile?

And here it is IN the holder. Love it!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team did with the calendar--I'm sure you'll get tons of cool ideas!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamps: Warm Winter Wishes (Flourishes)
