Happy New Year...

...to me! Well...I liked the easel card calendars I'd made for other people so much, I thought I make one for myself! lol
The image is 'Champagne Thomas' by Lili of the Valley...which I coloured with watercolour pencils, adding a little sparkle to the bubbly with a Sakura Stardust pen. The papers are from the 'Oh La La (for her)' collection by My Mind's Eye, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the calendar tab is by Anita's, and the numbers were cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.
