Phew...after a weekend of furious crafting...I've nearly finished making my Christmas presents....just a couple more to do...then everything to wrap...eeek! I've made a couple of easel card calendars...which I'm going to enter into the Stampin' for the Weekend 'Calendar' challenge. For the first one I followed the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge sketch. This one's for my Dad to keep on his desk...so I've gone for masculine colours with these Fancy Pants Designs papers ('Papa'), and a Whipper Snapper image called 'Balancing Act'. I embossed the circle with my Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder, the buttons & ribbon are from Poppicrafts, and the calendar tab is by Anita's.
The second calendar is for my Aunt...who has a bit of a thing for teddy bears...so I used three of the Penny Black 'Bear Blanks'. The papers on this one are by My Mind's Eye ('29th Street Market'), and all of the edges have been distressed. Once again the buttons & ribbon is from Poppicrafts, and I used the same Cuttlebug folder on the panel behind the bears. I'm entering this one into the Charisma Cardz 'Anything but Christmas!' challenge.
Must dash...so much more to do...but before I go...make sure you check out the brand new ABC Christmas Challenge blog...if you haven't already.
