Christmas Style Calendar



Hi Friends, Thought I would make something a little different today, think it has that Christmas feel, but can be used all year long because it is a calendar/wall hanging for 2010. The size is 20cm x 20cm so it's a nice size. Don't know about you, but I love decorating my home at this time of the year with sparkle, wreaths, tinsel etc, but hate taking them down. So I will hang it in my craft room and be reminded of Christmas every time I use it. I am going to enter her into 6 challenges and they are:

1. Crafting Life's Pieces Sketch Challenge: I just love visiting Chelsea at her blog, the creations she makes are just adorable, she is also the designer and maker of Gurlee Stamps, the stamps are all gorgeous and I've used Gurlee Girl Cocoa and followed the great sketch this week.
2. Sophisticats Challenge: This week is was the lovely Lyn's turn to pick the theme and she chose Wings. I have 6 little glitter butterflies on my project.
3. Cute Card Thursday Challenge: I just love the theme this week it's Glitter me Silly, ask no more there is plenty of glitter on my project. I just love it.
4. Fab's Big Christmas Challenge: I've only recently discovered Fabs blog but it's a lovely one, this week you have a choice of 3 or you can combine them all together. Diva, hanging card, wavy frame. Not sure if my entry will qualify as it's not strictly a card it's more of a gift. Anyway
Fab I'm sure you will let me know. I enjoyed joining in.
5. Creative Inspiration Challenge: This week the theme is New or Neglected. I have used my new DCWV paper stacks and my new ribbons.
6. La-La Land Craft Challenge: The theme this week is to Get Punchy, use your punches in the challenge or if you don't have a punch then die cuts will be acceptable. I've used my Martha Stewart lace doily border punch and my small butterfly punch.

I've enjoyed all the challenges this week, so different and inventive. Thanks to all above.
Remember if you want to visit any of the challenge blogs just click on the name.
Thanks for visiting see you all soon
