2014 Calendar - COVER

Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!! I'm back and ready to get into the swing of things again. I thought I'd kick off the new year with the cover to my 2014 calendar. Did I mention that my mother-in-law LOVED my 2013 calendar!?!  My sister-in-laws really liked it too and hinted at wanting one themselves so I'm making seven of my 2014 calendar to gift this next holiday season.  And before I forget... the wine glasses coloring page used on the cover was found here... WINE GLASSES.

My calendar base is Chocolate Chop layered with White Cardstock and Sweet Home Patterned Paper.  The strip is Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip finished on one side using the Scallop Dot Edge Punch.  I stitched around the edge and trimmed one end of the sentiment using my scissors.  The 2014 numbers were die cut using the Block Party Sizzix Dies.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I cut it out and attached it to the calendar base using mounting tape.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
