Stampin' for the weekend - LAST CHALLENGE OF 2009!!!

Well as this is our last challenge of the year we thought we would let it run for 2 weeks and make it a real challenge. This week we want to see a calendar! It can just be one of the tiny one stuck on a picture or you can do a different page for every month it is up to you. And the prize is brilliant it is from The lovely Kay at toodles and binks and she has put together this video to show you what the prize will be.......

As it is the last challenge I thought I would go all out and do an image for every month. I made calendar in the style of an easel card (which I had never done before). I am also going to put this in a second entry to Passion for promarkers anything but a Christmas card challenge but I have used way too many promarkers to be able to list them all here as I have coloured every image with them and some I have added touches of sparkle with sakura stardust pens. All of the back grounds are from the various Bearly Mine designers extreme disks. They are so perfect as they have all the elements ready to go and are digital so I was able to just add the images and the text in photoshop then print cut and colour.

Ok sorry as this is going to be a long one you will find the link to get each of the images I have used under the picture.This is Fall Miss Anya digi from The Greetings Farm

When February comes round I can see for Valentines day I am going to be using this adorable couple of cats from Mo's Digital Pencil a lot!

This Easter Anya was just perfect for march and you can pick her up at The Greetings Farm

This cutie is from the Cherry Kisses range at Polly Craft I just love this range there is something for every occasion and they are so much fun to colour.

This beautiful fairy is also from The Greetings Farm Marie is just so amazing these beauties are so different from her Anya images but just as addictive :D

This sweet little duo has been penned by my fellow DT member DI I think she is so sweet and can see that I will be using her a lot :D If you have not had a look at Di's Digi Downloads get over there now and check them out you won't be disappointed.

I am sitting here on this cold winters days and this makes me think of summer and sitting out doodling or writing in the sun. I do love all of Mo's amazing images. If I was rich I would buy the everything she has made lol. You can pick this image and all her others at Mo's Digital Pencil

I have gone back to The Greetings Farm for August I just couldn't resist these fairies when I saw them and have been colouring loads of them and adding tons of sparkle to their wings ever since.

This thoughtful lady is again from the Cherry kisses range at Polly Craft

Yippee these gorgeous fairies are from the incredibly talented Amy Young
. I have added a load of sparkle to this stunner but you would not tell from this pic. Seriously if you have not seen any of Amy's drawings or cards you HAVE to check out her Blog
and she has been signed up by All That Scraps to sell her digi images and stamps. I just can't wait to see what she draws next.

I just love this image it works so well for so many different projects whether it is cards a calendar like this or scrap booking. It is from Polly Craft and this time it is from a range called enchanted noel

I can not wait to see what you all come up with and make sure that you check out all the other DT members for even more inspiration. Our GD's for this week have also done us very proud so make sure you do not miss their blogs they are
