Welcome Baby Calendar

Hello crafters, happy Sunday!

Just a quick post today.
One of my younger co-workers is going on maternity leave soon.
She is expecting her first baby, a boy, how exciting!
I wanted to give her something special,
something interactive, and a toy for her :^)
So, I made another perpetual calendar with a baby theme.

I water colored the images with Distress Ink pads.
The moon was stamped on Magnolia DP, then colored.
I dabbed glitter glue here and there to add some sparkles.
I made the dices and picture frame using air-dry clay.
Sentiments were stamped and punched out with SU ticket punch.

 DPs are Magnolia.
Dies used are Magnolia, Spellbinders, Go Kreate and SU.
Stamps are Magnolia, LOTV (postcard) and SU (sentiments).
I used the LO from The Sketchy Challenges.

 The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
White and blue Ric Rac tiny ribbons, blue fluted edge sheer ribbon,
25mm Deborah cluny lace, ivory Jute mesh ribbon,
natural button twine, blue and pale lemon blossom flowers.

I had fun making this calendar. I hope Diana likes it.
I have made these calendar before, here and here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful week!


I wish to enter this project in the following challenges:

You totally blew me away with this. It's soooooooo beautiful! I know I say this every time, but really, this is a ah-ma-zing. If Diana doesn't want it, I'll take it (even though I don't have and am not expecting a baby). lol Just kidding! ;) I'm sure she will love it! Stunning creation! Hugs! xx
