Well after all of the season's festivities and laziness I thought it best I try and get back into the swing of the Challenges again. I missed most of December as I was really not prepared - as usual I must add! And all that baking I did - My freezer was jam packed full of seasonally wrapped and labeled lb loaf cakes, but thankfully they were all delivered in the fortnight before Christmas so there was plenty of room for the truck load of food we seemed to need!
Back to my first 'post-Christmas' Challenges.....
I've also decided to ignore my '1 card, 1 Challenge' rule from now on! I guess if the Challenge Blogs don't mind why should I??????? Also means I can participate in more Challenges :)
Stamping For The Weekend has had a special fortnight challenge due to Christmas, and it finishes tomorrow, nothing like cutting it fine eh! They wanted a Calendar.And Cute Card Thursday who close at 8pm (!!!!!!!!), have asked for something to do with New Year...
And...Allsorts who want 'Anything BUT a Card' - I do hope their challenge is running for 2 weeks and not the normal 1 week - otherwise I'm a little too late!
I have used a gorgeous HM image and watercoloured it. The papers are from MME - Bloom & Grow. The flowers were from a great crafty friend for Christmas and I added some chalks to them. I finished off with a little note pad and pencil holder......I'm not quite sure how the note pad will stand up to being used as I've 'cleared/tidied away' my perforating cutter, so don't think the pages will tear off very easily! I think I'll send this to my Mum. I'll just have to tell her to be gentle!
Thanks for taking the time to visit - and if I don't 'see' you before..........Happy New Year!
