One I made earlier

Here's the march part of the 2012 Calendar; I used big fat snotty glue dots to embed the flowers...but still have visions of them falling off in someone else's house next year. If it happens, I shall play the 'home-made' card!
Mary Anne has got so sick of me whingeing about how hard it is to make a card at the moment that she turned up at the crop on Saturday armed with an idea, and knowing my complete inability to understand the computer part of crafting, she even stood ready and offered to email pdf images for me.  Ya see, it pays to have a whinge.  Thanks MA.  I'll show it here, of course, but not till after the Card Marathon.  Which is erm, this weekend.  So  this week my focus is on counting and cutting.  There are a couple of advantages to this.  The first and most obvious is that I had to tidy up thoroughly - when you're pulling supplies to make a dozen or so cards, you need everything where it should be; saves time and panic! The second is that I'm not sitting at my desk spending four hours on a single card idea.  I just know that as soon as Christmas is over, I'll be buzzing with ideas for Christmas cards.  It goes that way, huh.

Ooh that's lovely, but then I am rather fond of that shade of blue:) Your roses look great and to be fair mine look fine, I just need to get quicker at making them!!
Sadly they don't need volunteers for the Nutcracker Trip, plenty of teachers willing to go. Surprise!

Great page - hope nothing falls off... Yes,I too get my best C card ideas as soon as I've finished the last one. Only this year I haven't started a one yet... meant to at the weekend but was feeling under the weather on Sunday and loafed on the sofa all day!

Your page is gorgeous. I could never write on this because my writing wouldn't be elegant and graceful enough. Beautiful!

Thank you for commenting and visiting my blog. I copied my reply here...
:) Thanks Julia! That IS a crown. :) Two friends and I got together to each make one before I left the USA. We would wear them when we got together for a play day...and now, when I miss them...or need a lift...I'll put it on for the fun of it. :)

What a unique style for a calender, I love it, you made me laugh with the "big fat snotty glue dots" remark :0 Thank you so much for visiting my blog and thanks for the compliment on my art work...I'm visiting yours and "following", I enjoy your outlook ( the post below about the painted on door ) you have a wonderful and playful sense of humor. I will enjoy visiting your blog again!

That's very pretty. Lovely shade of blue! And I don't think your flowers will fall off.

Got a laugh at the "snotty glue dots." Never saw any before, but I appreciate the visuals. I like the look of this and I don't make digital art very well, either. What's worse is, my colored ink is flaky.

Am going to try to visit WOYWW in the morning. I have an early day in my world, so it's still a bit up for grabs.
