Crafty Calendar Guest Design Team Spot

I was so chuffed when Georgia asked me to join Crafty Calendar as their Guest Designer for November. The theme this month is 'weather' with an optional extra of using pearls.

This month we are sponsored by Bunny-Zoe Crafts. Nicky will be offering a £10 gift certificate for her store to the lucky winner.

I used a cute stamp set from Kars and all was going so well until my Cuttlebug broke - yes it was during the making of this very card! I didn't give up and got my craft knife out to finish the job. If you look closely, you'll see the red scalloped frame was once pink polka dots - I shaded it with Copics to match the image!

The papers are DCWV, the pearls are set on to an acetate window looking through to the scene on the inside. Well if this post has reached you as planned, I'm enjoying my last day at Centre Parcs (sob, sob). May share a photo or two with you next week!

Looking forward to catching up with your blogs.

    Lovely and colourful.
