March Calendar Girl Card

The March Calendar Girl card was made by using one the pages from my

Calendar Girls Mini Coloring Book* by Adornit.

The card was water colored using dye ink pads and a Waterbrush*

I apply the ink directly onto a piece of acetate and pick up the ink with my water-brush.

Lucky Day Frame

St. Patricks Day Frame 2722

There’s something about turning the calendar page to March that makes me feel happy.

Even though we got snow on March 1rst and ice on March 3rd, I can’t help but feel

that Spring’s just right around the corner.  And… that really makes me happy!

I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day…

but after getting this green bordered frame from Deflecto and seeing this “Lucky Day”

collection from Authentique Paper, I was inspired.

Lucky Frame Corner 3118  Flower Close up

I did a little fussy cutting with the hat and shamrocks and adhered them directly onto the front of

the frame.  I also water-colored directly onto the cream paper flower to make it match the flowers

on the scrapbook paper.
