A Guid New Year!

Morning Folks, well not had a good start to the week what with one thing and another including slicing my finger twice, (ouchhhh) with my craft scissors, lack of concentration on my part!! Scheduled blog post not posting yesterday, anyways eventually I'm here showcasing one of the fantastic new images from the 'Thistle Collection' by Delightful Digi's , very apt for me!!!
So without further ado here is my first sample, an easy to make desk calendar....
My Sample
Products Used 
Delightful Digi's - Thistle 3 image
Papermania - Calendar and ribbon 
Promarkers - Lavender, Lilac, Amethyst, Pear green, Lime zest and Marsh green
Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles - Frosty Heather and Frosty Jade
Various card and gems from my stash

First of all I took an A4 sheet of green card from my stash and scored as shown here marked in black, using the Hougie Board then folded to create a DL shape ...

I printed the image on to watercolour card, added some text, coloured with Promarkers, cut to size and layered on lilac then silver card, trimming the corners. Adding some Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles to highlight! I layered together a strip of silver and lilac card, placing this across the middle of the calendar, adding the image topper to the left, then layered calender topper to the right, finishing off with ribbon and gems from my stash...
Close Ups 

Hope you like this fab simple idea, it's so easy to make and such a great gift for New Year!! Why not have a go yourself, more of these gorgeous images can be found over on Delightful Digi's
