May Calendar


Hee I was flying close to the wire with next month's calendar page for my Mum ;)   For this month, I've gone with the theme 4-legged visitors who visit her house.  From left to right, we have Poppy the labrador, Ruby the Westie, and Freddie the very timid lurcher (he's looking a bit squished here by the cheeky cat!)  Mum doesn't have any cats but they do like to frequent her rose bed and leave her unwelcome messages!

My stamps are from Eat Cake Graphics ...
3002-F Rowley smells something
3015-F Webster's tilting his head
2045-L Leap frog

Doggies coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added to their noses.
I went for the bokeh look with my background.  I diecut a few different circles in a bit of card and used it as a template to chalk in lots of different circles.

  1. I just love that calendar page, and the doggies of course. Did you write the dates in by hand or is that a stamp as well ?
