February calendars

I enjoyed making Mum's calendar last year, so thought I'd get in the act this year and have one on my desk in work too!  Mind you, it probably means that for most of the year I'll be late with 2 calendars instead of 1!!
I also have an issue with writing in a straight line - I see the dates are all on an upward tilt LOL.

Calendar 1: 
Images from Eat Cake Graphics ...
1016-J Main Squeeze
5039-C Daisy Mouse
Coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to his specs.  Clouds chalked in BG.

Calendar 2:
I've used an oooooold Stampin Up set here, but can't think of the name of it.  Coloured with watercolour pencils (and some white card coloured to match to make the banners and hearts)
Clear gloss added to his eyes.  Silver peel off and silver sequins from stash.
Water chalked in BG with a Simon Says stencil - it didn't reach all the way across and my 'join' was quite evident, so I framed my dates on this one.
