The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Calendars.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I wanted to make a calendar with a bit more purpose to it for my DD2 as she’s in her final year at Secondary school and in colours to match her recently decorated room.I thought this little beauty,Delightful Flowers¬†¬†by Crafty Sentiments Designs,was perfect.Not only could I colour that big bloom to coordinate with¬†the d√©cor she’s also a rabbit on the Chinese Zodiac.Apart from dogs she love bunnies too ūüôā I’ve coloured on kraft here with my Polychromos Pencils and painted over the centre of the flower with Iridescent Medium.This card was a real find at my local craft warehouse.It’s double sided!Usually with kraft you get a ‘grey’ side.Not so good for fancy folds and 3D projects.So I bought a whole box of it!!Well…don’t want to run out ūüėČ

My DD2 is struggling with exam nerves so this little gift may cheer her up a bit.This is what you get inside…


A few bits and bobs to help with that all important revision.I might find a little choccy to pop in there too nearer to the time of giving it to her.

The instructions can be found here.

Of course,to go with this she needs an extra accessory….


Desk Puppy!Although she has a day bed in DD2’s room so she can be close to her she prefers to sit under the desk where she can snuggle up to her legs!Or get in the way…The choice is yours ūüėÄ
