Cottage calendar

I found this cute cottage die at the craft fair in the NEC - I'd been looking out for it for ages.  I really like the way the windows and door open up! I've used it here with SU paper and a kraft card to make a desk calendar for an upcoming craft fair - I think I'll make a few in different colours.  The leafy die is a Magnolia Doohickey one and the tiny wee flowers were made using a punch. I bought the mini fence die ages ago, (not sure which company) knowing it would come in useful.  The 2014 was die cut using one of the first sets of dies I ever bought, by Quickutz (they have been very well used and still cut cleanly).  I will enter the Simon Says and Cute Card Thursday challenges this week, as they are both 'Anything Goes.'
Oh, I've just noticed my blog header has moved back to its normal place on the page - for the past few weeks it has been half off the top of the page and nothing I tried would shift it - hopefully it will behave now and stay where its supposed to be!
