Calendar Challenge - February



The two words that we must incorporate on The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge for February are Red and Hearts.  I have altered my beer mats using some K & Co bp as a base and then inked and stamped with Festive Berries Distress Ink.  I have used one of my favourite Crafty Individual stamps for the main image and went with that version of 'love' rather than the romantic version!

For those wondering, I don't live or work in a pub!  I bought a huge pack of 100 beer mats some years ago and have been steadily working my way through those ever since!  I might even have to purchase some more as I love working on this size so much and I am running very low!

I didn't think you were working in a pub... I just thought you visited often! LOL
You certainly have an eye for a design fitting these small squares. Love this February spread, with the crackle and this charming CI stamp.
