Good Morning to you all, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Im sure you are all suffering with a weight problem as I know I am, and Im going to have to be very strict with myself to try a loose some of this extra poundage that Ive put on over the holiday. We had a wonderful day with my daughter and her four children and she cooked a really splendid meal, even the weather was kind to us and we didnt have any problems driving to her house, and last night the rest of the ice and snow was washed away with a downpour of rain, thank goodness.
Im a bit slow in posting all my challenge cards so I thought Id get one posted today, this one is for the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge, a Calendar and Im going to also enter it for the Cute Card Challenge, New Year, its a bit of a cheat but I hope it will qualify for both. Its one of the new Magnolia stamps that I received in my Club kit, its a young teenage looking Tilda and Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens. Ive then cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a piece of pink pearlescent card, before doing so Ive distressed the edges with a pink inkpad.
The base card is an easel card and Ive used two designs from the Bearly Mine Designs, not that its easy to see the second paper as its pink as well. The first design has also been mounted onto two pieces of pink pearlescent card and one is stuck to the front and one to the inside of the card, on top of this I have used my second design for both the front and inside, with this one I have used my all around border punch by Martha Stewart and have stuck it in a diamond shape on top of this base layer, as I said its not easy to see, the camera seems to have rather made it invisable, over the front part I have stuck a piece of white lace across the centre with a pretty ribbon, and for the inside Ive used the same ribbon but no lace, then stuck my calendar to this page.
To the outside I have stuck my mounted stamped image and created a flower corner with some roses and some babys breathe and some wired gems. I can see Ive moved the ribbon slightly when I attached the mounted image, but I hope it doesnt spoil your sight of it (I didnt realise this had happened till after looking at this photo), Ive also stuck three pink pearls at the bottom on the left hand side.
To finish of this posting I want to thank all those lovely girls that have sent me some really gorgeous Christmas cards and ecards, its been a wonderful Christmas and its through your friendship thats made it a real blessing and extra special, thank you so much for that and Im looking forward to continuing being special friends with you in the New Year. With love and huge hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxxxx
