What a Fantastic New Year

Hi peeps,
Well I'm so loving 2011 already, so many lovely things are happening this year, will tell you more about that much later on he he,
This calendar was going to be a tent card, then I found out Magnolia down under wanted a calendar and I thought oh that's a good idea so I changed it into that instead lol,
I was in a masking mood so I've masked Tilda onto the swing and  Tilda onto the fence,
Tilda on the swing swings too, when she's not up on the wall lol,

Cutting out Tilda on the swing was fun! and adding tiny rings and not breaking the card was too, but it worked he he,
the branch I stamped and coloured twice then stamped again for some of the flowers to be 3D, the branch is layered on foam pads and the flowers are with Pin Flair Gel,

Here's a close up of the branch,
All images are coloured in Distress Inks, including the background,

The grass is a small wooden stamp I've had for ages which I just stamped direct from the ink pad to give deeper colour,

The calendar I bought ages ago from the Range and forgot I'd bought, oh Err, wouldn't have waited till next year would it lol,

The tag is a Magnolia Doo Hickey, distress with DI's , the Discover stamp is from a travel clear stamp set I've had for years, yes another forgotten stamp lol,
flowers are from WOC, and the craft range, these I have added Glamour Dust to,
Papers are Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby, Still with me phew!
Just Magnolia ~ Favourite things, Magnolia's DI's. Flowers, doing something a little different he he,
Raise the Bar ~ Oh to be a kid again
2 Sisters ~ Flowers
Pile it on ~ Anything goes
Ellephantastic ~ New Beginings
Paper Cutz ~ Use a tag or tags
OOh- -La-La ~ Bling it on
Pear tree designs  ~ free for all

Phew all done, if your still here thankyou! lol,
See you soon, Have fun,
