My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

6 January 2013

Do Mice Catch Butterflies?

Good evening, hope you are well?  I am very pleased that Dancing on Ice is back on the TV but not so pleased that I am back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off.  I have been on a real downer today, work blues got a hold of me big time!!

Anyway today's creation is a calendar which I have made for one of the girls at work.  I have made a load more of these for my other colleagues too, which will pop up over the next week or so.

Calendar Ingredients:

PB Image (free with magazine)
Organza Ribbon, Card, Brad & Grosgrain Ribbon from Stash
Anita's Calendar Tab
Pearls - NEC Stash
K&C Sparkly Sweet Papers
Liquid Pearls

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Dream Valley 48 Anything Goes
Anything But A Card 10 Things With Wings (Butterflies)

Thanks for visiting.

  2. Fabulous calendar Claire they will love them x

  3. Great calendar Claire, is that to tick off the days until February half term? Feeling the same as you, know when I get in tomorrow that I will wish I had read my emails today to get ahead of myself, ha ha..... but would rather be playing in my craft room :)

  4. Oh what a lovely gift for your workmate, bet she'll love it!
    I'm dreading going back to work tomorrow too, I could stay at home no problem (...but kinda need them to keep paying my wages or else win the Lottery!!)

  5. Lovely idea and such a gorgeous image that you have used how kind are you!

    Good luck for work tomorrow I have already done 6 shifts back since Christmas and New Year! Roll on the end of jan for my break!!
