my Stampotique February calendar pages by Sarah A

I am so pleased with myself...I've got beyond January with this year's calendar pages!  This is a first :)

To be honest, it's probably because I'm committed to posting here each Friday ... calendar pages are a nice project to share.  I also enjoyed the challenge of just using Stampotique images.

I decided to colour Peggy's face and hands, rather than paper-piece them.  Whilst colouring I discovered that she had a heart on her jumper ... I'd never noticed that before!

I was a bit worried that the white hearts stood out too much, but once they have writing on they 'tone down' a touch ...

... and I think I like it :)

Stamps used:
Peggy by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente
Daniel's Hearts by Daniel Torrente
Row of Numbers by Amy Wilson Wellenstein
Journey Collage by Amy Wilson Wellenstein
Alphabitties by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente

I certainly know what you mean about "good intentions," so I am proud of you, Sarah, that you made it all the way to February!! You have perfectly used Peggy as Ms. February, too! I don't have her, but, the more I see of her, the more I like her. Love to see the dates scattered about within the hearts for this historic month of LOVE! Well done, my friend! Mwah! KayW

I really like it! I only got through February on my calendar pages last year - I know exactly what you mean.

Really like how you went with a non-Valentine color scheme. Nicely done!
