A Calendar Easel Card

Hello!
Wow - it's Thursday already! This week seems to be flying by so fast! I hope you are all well!

Today I have used this sweet Tilda from the new Winter Club 'Raising the Ceiling' collection. I know many people were disappointed with this kit and I have to say I was a little let down with no winter images being included, but I do still love the images that make up the collection.

I have been wanting to make use of these little 2010 calendars that my mum sent me and I had seen this idea being used over on Debby's blog a while ago. I wanted to use papers and an image that would be ideal to look at all year round. I figured you can't go wrong with pink & aqua and flowers!

I'm really happy with the end result of this card. I've made it for a special friend so I just hope she likes it! I'm going to enter this into the Cute Card Thursday challenge for today which is 'Something New' - this Tilda is from the new collection and saw ink for the first time today!

Well, that's it for today folks! I hope you're all staying warm - it's chilly here again (-16oc) but the sun has finally shown its face after what seems like weeks!!

Thanks once again for your visit - I feel so blessed that you take the time to come and check out my creations and leave the beautiful comments that you do!

Hugs,

Love your Easel Calendar Card. Super colours you've used. I've made a few of these for my boys to take back to school for their teachers. They were really well received too, which is always nice!!!
