Final batch of Coaster Calendars with "Shin-Shin"

HAPPY NEW YEAR PEEPS!!!!!   Wishing all of you a healthy, safe, and prosperous 2014.  

Here's my final set of coaster calendars that I enclosed with some of our Christmas cards and shared with my co-workers.  This cute little panda is "Shin-Shin" by Sister Stamps that I inked with Copics.   So easy, all I needed was black.  :-)  

And here are 20 of them.   A few people asked how I managed to make some of my recent posts in multiples.   It was only possible because I started in July.  Otherwise, I'd be a cross-eyed basket case....LOL.

Other fun and crafty products used:
"Woodland Branch die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
Embossing folder by Cuttlebug from Ben Franklin Crafts
Glittered laser cut sakura flowers by and from Island Scrapbooking.  I love these!!!!
Grass punch by Martha Stewart
Butterfly punch by EK
Distress Ink
Pearls by Kaiser Craft

I'm looking forward to see all of your inspiring cards and paper projects in 2014.   Cheers to a new year of crafting.   HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

Love these Karen! Mine is hanging up on the fridge next to the one from last year. Nope can't let that one go.
You're so smart to start in July! I need to do that this year so I don't run out of time.
