2013 Calendar!

Hello all my crafty friends~
Today I want to share what I'm working in between tons of projects and it's prepping my 2013 calendars that I need to make for the new year.  This first set is going to be mines and it's going to sitting right on my computer stand.  LOL!  I decided that I didn't want to make one of those easel cards and tack down the whole pad of calendars like I did last year..  I'm taking it up another notch by working each month differently and probably go with the theme of  each month and making  it more interesting.  Let me tell you I got quite a bunch to make, my hubby thinks I won't get them all done on time.   We have a small bet going on, hehe!  If I win, I will let you all know by mid December....Oh boy, that means I will have to get at least 5  yearly calendars completed by each month.  I'm already two weeks behind on  schedule- yikes!.
Any who like I mentioned each month will have a different theme so for my first month I decided to use  Sister Stamps (Firecrackers) and I believe 2013 is year of the Snake. I thought this stamp was appropriate because it signifies popping firecrackers chasing away the bad and bringing in the good.   Those cuties were inked up with Spectrum Noir, and copics and I had their outfits paper piece, corner banner by C.C. Designs, lazer cut sakura flowers from Island Scrapbooking, O-rings, Crop-A-Dile to punch out my eyelets and pop up dots.
I will show you each month as I get them done, next will be February (Hearts) for Valentine's - yeah!

FYI - The images are popped off the firecracker !
They looked so cute in real~

I hope I've inspired some of you - I'm not going to procrastinate like I did last year scrambling to finish all my projects , the way the days are flying pass us I'm already prepping...

Thanks for stopping by and peeking in!
Enjoy the rest of your day/evening...
