Saturday Spotlight-Calendars

Happy New Year weekend!!! lol Hope you enjoyed the holidays! Also hope you're ready to get back to crafting!!! Today is our Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential challenge and our theme is calendars! Simply use a calendar element on your creation or make an actual calendar!

Our sponsor this week is the fabulously wonderful Bee Crafty Downloads! This is another of my favorite digi shops, very affordable and home to this adorable Fluffy Bunny & other cuties! Bee Crafty has a challenge blog too! Check them out!!

I popped my Fluffy bunny w/flowers over a calendar image by Fire Cracker Designs and sponged a background. This is an anniversary card from my hubby to me...hopefully I'll forget it by June! lol

My Diva sistahs so ROCKed this challenge, check 'em out!

Well, we had a very nice new years! The weather didn't cooperate on new year's eve day with snow in the morning and sleet in the evening. So we "party-ed" with friends in the afternoon & early evening, getting home right when it started to sleet! ugh!
We were looking forward to having the first taste of our homemade saurkraut on news years day! It was good but we think it needs to 'rest' a bit longer, wasn't as sour as we would have liked it! All in all our year end holidays were very nice and we were blessed beyond measure by friends & family! Now I look forward to a wonderful new year, experiencing God's continued faithfulness and being surrounded by love & laughter!!! And I pray the same for you!!! Blessings!
