2013 Calendars

Well I'm trying to be good and not leave it too long in between posts and although I've not done much crafting in the last week or so I have remembered some calendars that I did just before Christmas so thought I'd pop them on here and see what you think.

I got the idea and the template for the calendar pages from the One Lucky Day Blog and thought I'd make a couple for Christmas pressies - the top one however I did make for myself and the second one was originally intended for my son to give to his girlfriend but then he went and did a more personal photo calendar for her so I've now got a second one for home.  The recipients of the ones I gave away seemed to like them - hope you do too.

Have a good week and I hope to be back soon.
Thanks for any comments left, I really do appreciate these.

Happy New Year

Hi not been a very good blogger at the end of last year although I was dipping in and out of other blogs.  Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year and that you haven't broken all your resolutions yet - I haven't made any as they inevitably get broken!!

Had a very senior moment at Christmas I got all my cards made and then thought I really ought to take some photos to blog these and then what did I do, promptly forgot all about that and wrote and posted them instead :(

Life is still hectic - daughter had two uni interviews in the run up to Christmas (and has got two offers no less yeah) She has another three interviews in the next few weeks so fingers crossed - she will then have the difficult decision as to which one is favourite and which one is her insurance choice - glad its not my decision!

Anyway getting back to my blog hopping I noticed that Tim Holtz is continuing his 12 tags series for 2013 and having seen his tag I realised I had the quote stamp if nothing else so being brave or foolhardy (I'll let you decide which) I thought I would have a go at this challenge.  This is my effort, although the photo isn't very good and I've realised I've taken the picture before putting the ribbon in it - what am I like!!
I hadn't got any gear die cuts or a time piece embossing folder so instead I reversed the format and came up with this - I've used glossy accents on the watch faces and a fragment over the arrow and all in all I'm pretty happy with it - let me know what you think I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for looking and I hope to be back here again very soon.
