A few gifts

Here is a maya road calendar that I made for my mum for christmas. I used my favourite BG papers throughout - Sugared. And used the solid colours on the reverse and stamped them with Autumn leaves bracket journalling stamp, so she can put birthdays etc on the back. I was quite pleased with how it turned out, but I did find the sanding around the edges a little tedious and was covered in dust after, but generally it was quite fun to do. Please excuse the poor, hurried photos, once again I didnt take them until christmas eve.

I also made this mini garden journal for her to scribble notes etc... it has envelopes in for her seeds, a calendar for what to do when, and lots of little journalling stamps for notes and bits. I used mainly Kath Kidston stuff, from a pack of cards and envelopes that I got recently.

Well thats it for tonight. I hope you are having a good evening.

You are so very talented. I know Cheryl will treasure these gifts!

I am very late in telling you how much I have enjoyed the cards your Mom has sent me. I knew the minute I opened them you'd made them. They are beautiful and I have them out on display I am so proud of them.

Thank you!
