Sugar Nellie...anything but a card!
Hello my crafty friends. Thanks for coming by today! Today I have a challenge to show you that Janny set myself and Dena! She challenged us to use the Sugar Nellie image of the girl with the deer from the Autumn kit and to make something other than a card.
I decided to make a Christmas Planner. I had an undecorated chipboard album which I have had for yonks and yonks! I added tabs to several of the pages to create sections like: Cards, Presents Received, Presents Sent and Food. There is plenty room to add more pages and more sections.
I have coloured the image with my trusty prismas. The cover of the planner has been decorated with gold American Craft thickers, some ponsetias (eeek spelling???)and some scrapping stickers.
I am going to be adding this to my Etsy shop later today! I have one of these books already! Mine is a boring Lakeland one but when it is done I will make myself a handmade one. I find them very useful for keeping track of everything I need to do for Christmas, being a list kinda girl!
My good news for today is that my Jury Duty is cancelled!! Woooo hoooo! I was worrying a lot about my kids and their routines and picking them up and dropping them off. I feel like a big burden has been lifted from me! Thanks to all of you who sent me sympathy and to those of you who told me their own Jury horror stories!!
Now don't forget to drop my my lovely USA friends Dena and Janny and check out what they have made for the 'Anything but a card' challenge!
Hugs Judy xx
