May Calendar Challenge

Hi you all, hello from a very grumpy me this morning. Last night I was stupid enough to run against the kitchen door-jamb, and break my little toe. I have had it treated, but it still hurts a lot, and I can't get into any shoes today, not even sandals, so guess I will be staying home till it is a bit more manageable! I am just cross with myself for doing something so daft just now!
I have more or less finished my May calendar; I will add some more when I get round to it. I painted the background with gesso mixed with some pink and green-grey colours - leftovers from another job - and added tags for the days, and some roses. *Tag* is a pun, as the word for *day* in German is *Tag*. I am linking to the Kathryn Wheel.




Okay, that's all for today, I'm off to put my feet up....Take care, have a good day and thanks for coming by!
