January - A Year of Flowers

I work for a civil engineering company and we specialise in land remediation and helping to build new motorways. Every year we get sent lots of calenders from our suppliers and clients and we help ourselves from the pile. The problem is they are not very pretty and are mainly of dozers and diggers and excavators and big trucks! OK if you are a boy who likes big toys but my lovely colleague Mia came back from her holiday last week and had no option on a desk calender, so this is my first prototype for a calender for her.

The crocus flower is from A Year of Flowers from Flourishes and they were a late present from Santa! If you are like me and just love flowers you must check out these stamps. I've only had a couple inked up so far but they are really finely drawn and smashing to colour. I used copic markers and some Papertrey papers, ribbon and cardstock

The calender pages can be printed off from the Flourishes site - free if you buy the stamps!
