Another Gift for Christmas

Good morning. Well DH wasn't very happy when he came home from Wincanton yesterday (he went for a 'special' karate training session as he is grading for his black belt next month) - all that way and the trainer was late arriving but they still had to finish at the alloted time as another group had the hall booked - so he felt he had been diddled out of 1/2hr training and he 'missed' his usual Saturday afternoon snooze!!
I spent the morning in my little crafty haven and used the time to make another Christmas gift for someone, this time using the fab sketch at Penny Black Staurday this week (I missed the challenge last week so thought I better get in early this week). I decided to make an easel style desk calendar.

I bought these little calendars in Hobbycraft ages ago and when I tidied my craft room last week I found them - hurrrahhh!!

This also used:
Penny Black images from 'Wonderful Day' coloured with PM's
Images stamped direct onto mat cut using Spellbinders lacy squares and edges inked with Peeled Paint DI
DP's are the last few pages of my Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush' pad - edges inked with Peeled Paint DI
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Frond - Martha Stewart punch
Butterfly - Martha Stewart punch
A few adhesive gems from stash for finishing touch

Other challenges I would like to enter are:
Basic Grey - Wings (and BG product)
Secret Crafter - Handmade Christmas Gifts

What a fab night of TV last night - the dancing was a-maz-ing, 'most' of the singing was super and how patient was Sheryl Gascoigne with that dreadful woman - even the presenters know what a 'fraud' she is really - why are people still voting for her to have more airtime - that is exactly what she wants!!!
Let's hope the results for the dancing & X Factor reflect the true talent and the right people go.

Hope you have a fab day.
