 Here are some more of the calender i made.


 This peach one i would like to enter into the Clean & Simple
Comp over at Charisma Cardz Challenge.
thanks for all the lovely comments 
It feels great to be back to full crafty me.
Love and hugs 


A gift for mums and nans

I saw a blog earlier today were the lady did a little calender
i pinched the idea as i was  stuck with what to do with my
little calender.
So thank you doreen

I have made 2 of these from an A4 bit of card
cut 2 bits 10cm across and length of A4
then score at
10cm, 21cm, 23cm, 25cm. 
This then gives you your base.
add tape to the small bit of card and stick to the long bit,
I then stuck some paper so it overlaped to back,
i added some paper to the calender bit and folded it and stuck to back.


 This is a side view so you can see how it comes together.
and decorate as you wish.
thanks for all your wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
