Friendship has its perks - Inspiration Destination #143

Wednesday January 31, 2018
Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #144 and our theme is Anything Goes
It's calendar page time again. Over the past years I have been with a group of ladies where we create calendar pages and we have 12 different pages from these various ladies to enjoy for the month..
Well times have changed so now I am with a group that is from my own state of WA. in fact my own county.. So I was lucky enough to be given Feb. as my page. So I needed to make 12 pages that are all the same and then all the other 11 ladies do the same with their month. These are given to my friend Karen and she uses my binding machine and makes up the 12 calendars for each of us.. 
Now I have a 2018 calendar with 12 awesome pages to enjoy each month.  These ladies are awesome on their creations. This is my page. I knew it was a "love" month and so I used a Stampin up large wheel and Versa Mark and ran it over 3 - 8.5 X 11 Kraft and clear embossed. I then cut the sheets into 4  - 4.25 X 5.5 pieces. I took Stampin up card stock and cut the red dot paper so it kinda looked like a table cloth. I turned the dp over and used the scraps for the calendar backing.  I then stamped 12 Simon Says coffee cups onto Stampin up designer paper and using red Stampin up ink I added the heart. I fussy cut out each coffee cup and using foam dots added this to the page.  I used brown copic and
Wink of Stella for the coffee. I stamped 12 Simon Says sentiments and used My Favorite Things banner die and went around the edges with Quick Quote chalk ink I also added foam dots to this piece.  I like the homey feeling this card gives and I get to enjoy my page for the whole month.. even if this is a short month...
