Surprise

Guess what this is not a Criss Cross card -- can you believe it? I told you all that I am a creature of habit, I guess you all did not believe me. If any of you do a criss cross card, please let me know. I would love to see them!!!


Well this is the first month of my 2009 calendars. Yes you read that correctly 2009. You see I am always scrambling at the end of the year to do holiday cards and calendars, but not this year. I have promised myself that I will do at least 10 holiday cards and 1 month's worth of calendars each and EVERY month.

So I started with November, do not ask me why just weird I guess. I used Always on my Mind (retired). I originally purchased this set to do calendars, but it is really time consuming. I stamped the image with timber brown staz on ink, and then colored it in with my watercolor pencils. Then I used my blender pen to soften all the edges. Did I mention that I am doing 24 calendars? Crazy I know.
Well 1 down and 11 more to go.

Great November, Corie! I'm always saying every year about Dec 15, I wish I got a head start on some projects and I never do. You are so smart. Can't wait to see more.
