I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Four challenges in one!

I made this "Countdown to Christmas" calendar after seeing one of the Tutorials on Whiff Of Joy site. This one is 8" x 8" and for our team noticeboard at work. After the girlies saw it I have had orders for another 8! They are all finished now and you will see one of them in my DT post on Saturday for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

The stamped image on this one is from a stamp I bought as a bargain for £1.99 (it still had the price ticket on LOL) a couple of years ago and I have never used it (hangs head in shame). The papers are scrummy new ones that Wendy has in stock at Secret Crafter which are by K & Co.

It fits the following four challenges:-
  1. Papertake Weekly challenge - cut it out
  2. Passion for Promarkers #79 - Old and New (old stamp, new papers)
  3. Oldie but goodie #6 - glitter
  4. A Spoonful of sugar #131 - Anything goes

Image:
Unknown (no name on the stamp - sorry)
Papers:
K & CO "Secret Santa" 12x12 pad from Secret Crafter
Medium:
Promarkers, stickles and fluffy stuff from Secret Crafter
Tools:
Martha Stewart Snowflake punch
Hobbycraft large snowflake punch
Others:
Calendar made on PC in Excell
Glitter card, spacers and brads from stash
