2010 Calendar




Happy Sunday everyone. I think I've outdone myself with my recycling this week. I was looking for things to alter and came up with the idea of using the polystyrene base of a frozen 10" pizza, which my hubby and I shared for supper. When you remove the pizza there isn't a mark on the base and it's ideal for the purpose of redecorating. I decided to make a calendar for my GDT spot over at the Crafty Pad challenge this week which is a recipe of 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 brads and swirls. I've used one of Debbie's lovely Faith stamps as my image. Do pop over and join us, there is also a free Digital image to enter into the GDT spot. I am also entering my creation into 3 other challenges that my project fall into.
1. Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge: The theme this week is Autumn.
2. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge: So lovely to see this Fab challenge back with us. This week is a Colour theme of Orange, Brown and leafy Green.
3. Stamp Something Challenge: The theme this week is Brown & Something, you can use other colours but your project has to have lots of brown in it.

Thank you so much for coming to visit, I hope you have enjoyed browsing and please do pop back and see me again soon.
