Monthly Calendar for November

Well, I decided that for once I would really be on time... I don't think that Kate Crane who hosts this challenge has even put up the link yet, but hey, I can always add it later.
Happy November everyone and here is my page:


And here is October all filled in

To do the background for November I used mainly Distress Stains in Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo, to give that gloomy November weather feel. Like usual I used some paper napkins and a TH stamp, The image on the right was in my stash, it's probably Graphics Fairy, the little steampunk boy is a freebie from Land of Nod studios.

There's not one thing on your beautiful November that looks "gloomy", Astrid! Your pages are gorgeous!!!

BTW - thank you for all of your warm wishes. It's so nice to be back on-line, and I don't think I'll ever take light and heat for granted again! It was way too early for a snowstorm of this magnitude, and many of our neighbors will be clearing damaged trees and limbs for weeks. ♥ Hugs, Terri xoxo

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
