Calender sketched

I have been making my calenders again - only two more to go now!

So for this first one I used the sketch from AHSC for the main theme.
I rotated the sketch then used a pink card for my base. I took some monochromatic paper from my stash and die-cut using marianne dies, layering them according to the sketch. The border strip was already in my stash.

I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:
 AYLI - Anything Goes
CRAFT #495 Anything Goes

My second calender is a hanging one - as not everybody likes the desk calenders.

I based this one around a Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch.
Again I used the pink card as a base, but this time I layered the sketch onto an oriental patterned paper. I used a marianne die to cut the frame for the image and added a white ribbon with silver edges, and a silver bow to finish.

I would also like to enter this one into the following challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams - Anything Goes
MAWTT #87 Anything but a card
Intaas #48 Add some sparkle (ribbon and bow)

I also have a couple of pet photos for you :)

I will have a stitching update once I find my diary with the time taken so far in it!!

Have a great Christmas,

Hugz Tinz
