Monthly Calendar for December

Wow, can you believe it is December already? I have now been doing this monthly Calendar thing for a year and a half....
Anyway here is my December spread, if you click on it you will get a better view...
I created the background for this page with the help of Gesso, Walnut ink and some paper serviettes and stamping. I then embellished with die cuts and glitter. I wanted the whole spread to have a Christmassy feel.
Here are some details




All the details about this challenge can be found at the blog of Kate Crane
There you will also be able to find links to the inspirational spreads of all the other participants.

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!
