Before I get to my cards for today I would like to share some exciting news... The fabulous Denise and Erin from Stamp Something Challenges have asked me to join their DT!! I am delighted to have made the team and look forward to getting started in January with all of the new ladies!!
This week we'd like to see a Calendar for the New Year, It can be a layout of some kind with a 12 page calendar, or if your feeling particularly adventurous you can do 12 separate cards or layouts. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and is being sponsored by Kay from Toodles and Binks.
I used one of the new Magnolias from the Winter/Christmas Kit... not sure what she's called, lol. I've coloured her using Copic markers and added some Inkssentials white gel pen to give her some depth. I covered a coaster with BG Eskimo kisses papers and printed out a 12mth calendar. I then punched holes using my crop-a-dile and theaded some red string through. The '2010' are leather thickers that I edged using pink Copics. I finished it off using the most gorgeous little pearl hearts.
If anyone would like the template to the calendar just msg me with your email addy and I'll send it on to you. It's in MS Excel format :)
Don't forget to pop over to the other SFTW ladies blog's to see what they've created. Our Guest Designers are Tanja and Sharon and we also have 5 new DT members announced on the Stampin' for the Weekend Blog.
I made this card earlier in the week (like last Sunday!!) but haven't had a chance to post it until now. I had planned to enter it into a combo of challenges but I missed the deadline on Friday Sketchers with their fabby sketch and Papertake Weekly with Red & Green should not be seen.
But I am in time for Anyone for Anya's challenge with is Bling it On and Basic Grey's challenge which is to use a colour combo of Cream, Pink and Blue. I used BG's Eskimo Kisses papers with one of The Greeting Farm's "Rain Snow Shine" Anyas. I've coloured her using Copic markers and added Polar White flowersoft to give her handmuff, coat trim and boots a soft fluffy effect.
The big flowers and tulle are from Tabby Crafts. I added smaller roses in the centre and then stickled them all with Star Dust stickles to add some bling!!
Well that's it from me for today. I have a very busy day planned... baking, cleaning, etc as my baby girl's 4th birthday party is tomorrow. I do hope to get some blog hopping done over the day though ;)
And serioulsy, I cannot believe it's only ONE WEEK to Christmas... eeeeeek!!
Have a wonderful Friday and happy crafting!!
