Making Blogger's Challenge Shiny!

Happy Friday Friends! I am trying something new today. I have always wanted to make a calendar with some rubber stamps and other crafty things. This week's Blogger's Challenge is to make anything but a card, so I thought that this would be a great time to try one. Just head over to Lisa's blog to play along with this week's Blogger's Challenge.

I started off by inking up this sweet image from The Cat's Pajamas. He is from the Deep Breath set. I used Copic Markers (B41, B45, C1, C3, E01, E11, E13, E15, R20, R22) to color up my skating friend and then I fussy cut him out. This week's TCP Tuesday Challenge is to create shiny embellishments, so I added a skating pond and some snowflakes made with some mirror paper. To make the snowflakes, I simply used the new Snowflakes Lace Paper CutUps die. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new CutUps die!! I also added the sentiment from the TCP Skating Bunny set. The patterned paper is from Memory Box. Here is a close up of the crafty part.

So there you have it...my first calendar page. I'll be ready for 2012! Hopefully, I'll be able to make a new page each month. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me. I really appreciate it! Have a wonderful weekend...Toodles! :D
