The Calendar Finale!

Hi all! Hope your week is going splendidly! Time is whipping by. I blinked and Monday was gone! Why is it when you need time, it flies but when you want it to.... well, that's another story altogether! ;-) Such is life.... eh?

Today, as promised, the grand finale to my 2010 calendar! You might wonder why I am ending with the month August.. well, I actually started backwards with THIS POST here!

These last months follow the same layout as the other 8 months - an oval, stamped and colored with Copic markers, some gold paper as a base, a fancy tag and a dash of bling! Oh, you can't forget the calendar download that is on the Flourishes Website HERE!

Isn't this iris image above just beautifully drawn? Marcella Hawley... gotta love her artistic flair! I colored the iris up with the Violets and Spring Green Copic Collections arranged by Flourishes. The paper is Memory Box...

This month offers some Basic Grey Paper (Wassail) with the rose being colored up with the Dahlia and Fields Copic Collections!

For the tiger lily above, I used the Tiger lily and Fields Copic Collections and added a dash of Basic Grey Ambrosia paper.

And lastly...the delicate morning glory was colored up with Spring Greens, Crocus and Delphinium Copic Collections. And... here's a look at the entire set!

For a peek at any or all of these Copic Collections, just click HERE to take a look see! The colors are to die for and I love, love, love that Flourishes took the guess work out of matching up colors to get the right blend!

Well, tomorrow is the beginning of the sneak peeks for Flourishes January release! We kick it off with a beautiful set and a fabulous background! Want a peek???? Here goes!

Hhhhhhmmmm..... can you guess what it is???? hehehe!

See you back here soon! Also, I announced the winner of my blog candy on Sunday's post HERE. If I don't hear from the winner by Wednesday, I'll draw a new name. So, stay tuned, your chance at the winnings might not be over!
