Hi everyone and Happy New Year. I hope you all enjoyed your celebrations over the festive period and didn’t over-indulge (as if lol!). I’m sorry for the long absence since my last post but it’s been a hectic few weeks.
I was lucky enough to win a challenge over at Quirky Crafts challenge a few weeks ago and my prize was a guest designer spot and I’m here to share my card with you. The challenge is ‘new beginnings’ and will run for the next two weeks. I decided to make a calendar as it is the beginning of a new year:
I have used a very neglected stamp from whiff of joy called ‘shopping willow’ as I think I will give this to my shopaholic friend lol! I decided to make an easel card calendar as it will sit nicely on her desk. I’m sorry the pictures are a little dark but I took it late at night!
I can also enter my calendar into the following challenges:
