Hello everyone,

I hope you have all been well!  I have fallen a just a little wee bit behind on my mother's House Mouse calendar, but I'm not throwing in the towel just yet.   The current challenge at House Mouse and Friends is autumn and/or harvest, which was just the little nudge I needed to get another page completed.

How cute is this image!  Really fun to colour too.  As with all the other months, this calender is reusable - the calendar part just slides out of the little pocket and the new year is inserted.


Paper - Want 2 Scrap chipboard base, Imaginisce Apple Cider DP and Bazzill card.  The little apples and leaves were cut out from the DP
Image - HM Big Apple-tite coloured with Prismas and blended with Sansodor
Other - edges were all inked with DI walnut stain, calendar was computer generated.

I would like to enter my project in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and a blog hop in celebration of turning 5!  Congratulations!!

Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to leave a comment!  I love reading them and visiting you too!
