For this post I have used a new wreath die (came with a magazine) to make both a Christmas card, and also a desk calender.
This pair was made for the current Twofer challenge #11 Wreath.
My calender was created using lilac sparkle card as a base. I then cut a triangle from white card to make a stand (fold one edge of the triangle and adhere to the reverse of the base so that the bottom edge slopes upwards rather than being flat to the ground - this allows the calender to sit back onto the desk).
This card is based around the sketch from MTTC (#383) -
I would also like to enter the calender for the following challenges:
CCM #222 Lots of layers
The Christmas card is very CAS:
I would like to enter the Christmas card into the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #215 Christmas/Winter
The Paper Players #218 Colour challenge
The Lost: Paula Maguire #1 by Claire McGowen
The first book in this series follows Paula, who is a forensic psychologist, back to her home town in Ireland. Two girls have gone missing on the border, but Paula’s return stirs up the past and the reasons why she left her hometown in the first place. These reasons may put the whole investigation at risk. All the evidence that they manage to gather also appears to link back to events and disappearances from the past, and Paula must figure out how everything is connected before more girls are lost.
I found this book very slow to start with, but as you get to know the character and the history you do want to know more and you get more engrossed. This is not as fast paced as a usual crime novel, but there are still twists and sub-plots and by the time I had finished the story I wanted to read the next one to find out more about Paula.
Thanks for looking
