May calendar

It's a nice long weekend for the May Bank Holiday here, and I treated myself to an extra couple of days, so I've no work till Thursday. Yippee!  Hope the weather wises up a bit, its been typical Bank Holiday weather here so far ... dark, windy, wet and generally yeuchy!

This calendar is part of an ongoing pressie to my Mum ... I wasn't organised enough to get it finished for Christmas, so instead she gets a new page every month!
My theme for May is a travel one as she's off to Canada in a couple of weeks on her hols.
My little Canadian girl is from Kraftin Kimmie - coloured with watercolour pencils and glitter added to the maple leaf on her jumper.  I paper pieced my little airplane from The Alley Way stamps, added some glitter to the propeller and used a white marker to add the Aer Lingus logo.  City scape die from Paper Smooches.  Sky chalked in BG.

Simon Says Stamp Monday - anything goes
Curtain Call - travel on
Crafty Calendar May - things with wings
Polkadoodles #18 - anything but square
Simply Create Too #84 - pretty woman
