Calander update

I have made a decent start to myJanuary page for the challenge. It snowed all day yesterday so sadly i had to stay home from work  because i couldn't get the car off the drive. It as such a shame, i had to do some crafting instead!!

This is part of the first page. I tried to imagine post Christmas colours and bringing in theNew Year. I used Crafty Notions sprays to create the background. I stamped an Elusive Images stamp in White but i am not really happy with the outcome of this.
I then embossed a line of fir trees in Gold along the bottom of the page using a Lavinia Stamp along with some silver embossed stars as we are still enjoying wintery weather. Ifinished off with some star flourishes as a  celebration of the new year.


Below is an image of both pages, same theme but slightly different colours.

This still needs some work but it is coming along fairly well.

Keep safe in the snow and ice.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone.

I have managed to fit in some crafting around the New Year celebrations today.

I've finished my ATC's for the Graphicus challenge, hope i manage to send them off in time and i have started to arrange my first calender page for the challenge.

I know Christmas has gone but i had to post this picture of Meg in her Santa's helper t shirt.

I don't usually go in for dressing pets but she is so cute i couldn't resist. Try to ignore my hubbie's feet.

Take care, emma

I have never written a blog before; i became curious on a craft workshop last saturday when the group were talking about the contacts they make, the tips that they learn and the inspitation from other crafters so here goes..........

When i have mastered this i hope to post some pics of my work too.

Bye for now, Emma
