Vintage Lady Calender

Hi everyone, I've been a bit naughty about posting lately I'm afraid, but I'm back today with a little desktop calender that I've made for a friend of mine. This is for the lady that owns the vintage shop and stocks my Art Deco cards, so I hope she's going to like it.
I got the idea for the calenders from Edna, another friend of mine. She is always making gorgeous little bits and bobs and inspires me no end, so if you haven't visited her before, please do, as all her work is just fabulous.
To be totally honest, this isn't quite finished yet as I need to punch the holes in the bottom and thread some ribbon through, but I thought if I didn't post this now another day would go by without a post being put on my blog.

Card Details:
* Coloured cardstock and glitter card from stash
* Backing papers by K & Co and Joanna Sheen lace paper pads
* Scallop mats by Nestabilities
* Printable calender by Printfree

I've been trying to get some pictures of the little 'book card' full of Christmas Cuties that I made for my eldest son and his wife, but it's too thick to scan and I can't get the hang of my new camera at all!
It's so difficult to get the light right as the weather is so gloomy at the moment, and when I do manage it I take loads of snaps and pop them on the PC only to find they are blurry, so I may have to give up on sharing this one with you all.

oh this is just gorgeous Chrissie - a beautiful present.

I know what you mean about taking photos at the minute - sometimes the cards or whatever look dreadful (well I blame the light but ...LOL)

Hope to see the cuties soon.
