Good morning dear friends. Another Monday and the dreaded start of the working week lol! I really need to win the lottery so that I can craft all day (which I think is every crafter’s dream). One good thing about Monday is that I have 2 DT cards to share with you and the first one is for the stamp with fun challenge. Our theme this week is “calendar” so we want to see all your gorgeous calendar creations for 2012. I was asked by a friend in work to make a desk-top easel style calendar for her daughter and this is what I made:
As I was in a bit of a rush I used a pre-coloured die cut image from Lili of the Valley but I did colour the flower and the dots on her dress with a flex marker so that she matched the paper. It was a fairly basic layout as time was an issue but my friend was happy so that’s the main thing. The papers are a mixture – the brown striped paper is echo park from the dots & stripes ‘candy shoppe collection’ and the pink paper is echo park from the ‘be mine collection’ (I think!).
The rest of the design team have made gorgeous creations, as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my calendar easel-card into the following challenges:
OSAAT challenge – use 3 embellishments (pearls, flowers and punched border)
Lili’s little fairies challenge – new beginnings (new year)
Paper play challenge – Happy new year (calendar)
Crafty catz challenge – a new beginning (new year)
