And the Calendar Continues!!

Happy Monday crafting chums!

As some of you may know I am making a couple of Calendars for Christmas presents and need to do a topper for each month (never again!!). Yesterday I thought I had better get down to it although I wasn't feeling too creative. March needed to get done and as Easter is in March next year this is the theme I went for. Now, I was faced with another problem-my Mum (who one of the calendars is for) made the passing comment that she was not so keen on my CAS cards and liked it when I added ribbons etc. Yikes my CAS brain was facing a challenge!!

I struggled all afternoon and got out every piece of crafting tool, ribbon, paper, card, buttons etc. The room was a very 'un-Sandie' state (I am a tidy freak!).

However this is what I came up with:

I guess looking at it now, it is still pretty CAS. I honestly tried out lots of DSP but couldn't get anything to work.
I am still not happy with it really, however it was a challenge and as such I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

Eclectic Ellapu-anything goes
Live and Love Crafts-anything but a card
Stamp up your Life-anything goes

Only April to do!!

And before I leave you, Lisbeth, one of my fellow DT members on Inkspirational, has some blog candy to give away, so pop to her blog here to see how you can win some extra candy for the holiday season.


  1. Sandie, I love how the butterflies look like they are flying off the page..and how you stamped the cross multiple times is fabulous.

  2. Sandie, you pulled it together :D)! Nicely done. Thanks for joining us at Eclectic Ellapu!

  3. I was thinking more about you comment about using more DSP. I struggle with that too...take a peak at my card from is a fun way to try and mix/match papers, but not feel like it is too much!

  4. This is wonderful, Sandie!!! LOVE the colors and the images you've paired--plus that paper is great! I hope you'll join me at Technique Tuesday this month! Happy holidays!!!

  5. Love this colour combo...I'm thinking easter eggs and chocolate! And those butterflies fluttering off the page clever!
