I made this calendar for my sweet friend who's my 'virtual mom'. She sends cookies to me clear across the country! It was just my little way of showing her how much I appreciate her kindness and generosity.
In case you can't read the quotes very well I'm posting them with each picture and a few notes on some of the embellishments. Some of the papers have glitter which the camera doesn't capture.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love. (this was from an old desk calendar)
Strangers are friends waiting to happen. (fur trim and bear are flocked)
A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart. (heart is popdotted, butterfly is from barrettes sold at the dollar store)
A good friend is like a four leaf clover. Hard to find and lucky to have.
A true friend is one who thinks you're a good egg even if you are half cracked. (chick is flocked)
A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it back to me when memory fails. (pop dotted the bird and leaves)
Friendship isn't a big thing, it's a million little things. (ladybug popdotted)
There are big ships and small ships but the best ship of all is friendship.
We are captains of our own ships sailing the sea of life, but in times of a stormy weather you will discover true friends when they don't hesitate to be a lighthouse.
A friend accepts as we are yet helps us to be as we should. ( butterfly is pop dotted)
Friendship is a sheltering tree. (tree stamp is watercolored)
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. (flowers are handmade from layering punches/dies for 3d effect)
Friends are kisses blown to us by angels. (angel is heat embossed w/red powder)
The calendar was made with the cuttlebug calendar embossing folder set and inked. Numbers stamped with clear stamp calendar sets.
Thank you for stopping by and looking. I'm quite proud and happy about this project. :)
