Today I'm sharing my version of a planner page. I don't use a traditional type planner because I like to see the whole month and I want it big enough to write in. Plus its size (17 x 22") allows it to double as a desk blotter. I purchased it from Pick Your Plum and it's made by TF Publishing. It comes with just the black outlines, like a giant coloring book. I have several different marker sets but for this I stuck with my Spectrum Noir pastels set. I used my PaperMate Ink Joy pens for the writing.

I made this card for my husband last Father's Day and never posted it, so obviously I'm posting it now. The dogs are loosely based on our 3 fur babies. They always give Daddy a card on Father's Day. I'm not sure exactly how they pull it off but they're very resourceful little pups :)

I made this card for a friend who's a big baseball fan. His favorite team is the Chicago Cubs so I tried to stick to their team colors, red and blue. I used a dauber and some brown ink to make the ball look dirty and worn in. That part came out better than I expected....
