Pretty in Pink

The challenge over at Ooh La La Creations at the moment is Anything but a Card so I thought I'd make another of my little desk calendars.  They were a great success at the Christmas Fair that I sold at earlier this month, they completely sold out, people bought them as gifts.

For this one I've used one of the cute images from Joanna Sheen's Furry Friends CD, I teamed it up with Henbury Lane papers by docrafts that have been in my stash for ages and layered everything onto some matt gold card stock.


The calendar is made in an easel card design with the calendar as the stopper.  I added a Spellbinders Floral Flourishes swirl cut from the same gold card stock and embellished it with some small pink roses, a pink bow completes the project.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Ooh La La Creations Challenge 95 - Anything but a Card
Just Some Lines Challenge - Handmade Gifts
The Crafty Pad Challenge 151 - Send someone a Smile - No Birthdays or Christmas
The Crazy Challenge 97 - More than one fold (my calendar is an easel card design)
Totally Papercrafts Challenge 96 - Anything but Christmas
Scrap-Creations - Make it a present

There is still time to enter the challenge over at Willow Sketchie, pop over and have a look, the prize this week is a voucher to spend in the Willow Designs Shop.

Thank you for looking, please leave me a comment I would love to know what you think.

Hi Pauline, this is stunning, I love it. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I think we're all chasing our tails a bit at the moment, I know I am, and I don't have a 16th birthday to organise! I hope your son has a lovely day. Lots of hugs, Jo xx
