18 Days Til 2008!!!

Can you believe how fast this year has gone??

But in preparation for next year I have made a little desktop calendar!

For it used some of those wonderful Jumbo playing cards, and it works out really well, with 13 cards in a suit, you get the 12 months and a front cover, so that's 4 calendars from one pack of cards! BARGAIN!
I decorated mine with some Vintage Sarapapers and a set of free calendar blanks which you can print off the internet! I used a Helix stencil and some punched out flowers for the cover and a couple of bookrings to join it all together, the best thing is though this cards are strong enough to support themselves so it is completely freestanding! (at least it will be til it gets buried on my desk!!)They are so quick and easy to make so they would be great for a last minute stocking filler!

And secondly I am going to show off a little gift box I made, very simple using BoBunny Jack Frost Ornament Paper, I just loved this paper but I found it too busy to use a full sheet on my LO's so this was great way to use some of the paper up and still be left with enough to use elsewhere!
