July Calendar

Here is my July calendar. I stamped Magnolia-licious' #161 Lightening Edwin which is a Christmas stamp. After I colored the image with Copic markers, I covered the Christmas bulbs with star rhinestones. I also added some glittery stickers.

I got the idea of  'altering' this image from Suzanne Dean. She had used this image for a Valentine card and had covered the Christmas bulbs with hearts. I love discovering new ways to use my stamps. Hope you give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by. Check back Tuesday for the new Magnolia-licious Challenge. LC

oh that is adorable! I have never been tempted to make a calendar before. I may have to rethink it. Love this image you used.

Hi Linda, love the way you've 'altered' Edwin to be holding a string of stars instead of Christmas lights. Gorgeous calendar page!

This is so cute. I agree with Barb, love the way you altered the string of lights to stars. Clever!

Awesome Linda!!
The way you have altered Edwin is just super!
He makes a perfect July card :o)
I don't know how large your calendar is - are you using a full size image or a mini?
Hugs, Candy
