Happy February!!
I can not believe that it is February already!!
The time is just flying by!!! 

I have my February Desk Calendar to share with you today!
This month I had it finished ahead of time so that I could post it on the first.
I hope to do that each month for the rest of the year.

I have to tell you that February is maybe my favorite time of year to make little crafty projects!!  I think that it is the red, pink, grey, white and black colors and then I can really fluff things up this time of year and get away with it!! ha ha ha

I have used another Krista Smith image and you can find ALL of her digital images at her Etsy store HERE.

A while back I had bought 4 of them! I do have all 4 of them colored just not into projects yet. I told myself that I couldn't buy anymore of them until I have all 4 of these made up into projects. So I have 2 more to go then I can buy some more of these little cuties!!

Her images are so fun to color. I just love coloring the hair on her images.

Papers: The Paper Studio, Girl's Paperie, Making Memories, Anna Griffin and Bazzill cardstocks.

Misc embellishments: Pearls ( Queen & Company), calendar (Jenni Bowlin), Metal heart charm, metal card, 2 different metal Love (all from my stash), ribbons, paper flowers, crystals, glass bulbs, string pearls, (from stash),
Other items for technique: Copic Markers to color image, Distressed inks (Tim Holtz Antique Linen) Stickles (Ranger) Sewing machine for sewing the layers of my card.

 I added Stickles to the Magnolia Heart Swirls.

Copic markers, Distressed inks, paper flowers can all be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More
Magnolia Heart Swirl Die can be bought at Magnolia-Licious Store

Challenges I have made my Calendar to fit:

Paper Pretties - Valentines
Craft Us Crazy - Valentines
  One Stop Crafts - Stitching 
Heartsong Inspirations - Red and White or Ribbon

And for the very last thing today.
It's all Christine's (dol creations) fault that I am doing a calendar for my desk each month!!!
Anyway..She always posts a desk calendar on her blog on the first of each month. SO PLEASE HOP ON OVER AND SEE WHAT SHE HAS MADE TODAY.
Just click on her name to take you there..

It's very kind of you!!
