Make a Gift...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week has been chosen by ME and is 'Make a Gift'. Our wonderful sponsors this week are A Passion for Stamps and The Craft Barn. So 2 chances to win :-)
4 images of winners choice    £15 on line spend
So onto the gift I made, a hanging calendar using a pretty floral image from our sponsor A Passion for Stamps. I made this for a lovely friend of mine for her birthday. I coloured up the image first, mounted it on the fancy cut oval die and then backed a 2014 calendar tab onto some card. I laid these 2 pieces out onto a piece of card to work out how big the base needed to be. I attached a length of seam binding to the top so the calendar can be hung...

Image - Lupins coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Papers - Perfect Pair from Lili of the Valley
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Spellbinders Floral Oval die, Spellbinders oval die, Anita's calendar tab, brown chalk inkpad, kraft cardstock

Please do come and join us over at Allsorts this week for our challenge x
