My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

29 February 2012

An Easel Calendar

Evening all!

Well guess who has come down with a cold?  Feel like pants tonight, so have my PJs on and Mark is currently cooking my tea ..... bless him, he's just fab.  So at least I have time to suffer this one out and get rid of it for the big day!!  I thought I was doing too well not catching it from Mark or the girls over half term!

A while ago I made myself a desk calendar for work and my colleagues loved it so much, they all want one ... just need to get around to making them .... 5 in total!!  

Calendar ingredients:

Penny Black Stamped Image (Free from Magazine)
Wild Rose Studio Lilac Twist Papers
Bazzil Basics Cardstock 
American Crafts Ribbon
Gingham Ribbon from Stash
Pearls - NEC Stash
Flower Buttons from Stash
Anita's Calendar

I am entering this into the following challenges:

MAWTT Lots of Layers
Delightful Sketches Use Patterned Paper
C4C125 2 Layered Card
The Cutie Pie Flower Power

Hope you all have a good evening, think I'm in for an early night.
