I've never been a Calendar Girl before! But when Annie the Felt Fairy asked me if I'd like to act as hostess for the November Monthly Makes, I jumped at the chance. So I'm Miss November!
You'll have seen my Monthly Makes popping up through the year, and the year before, when Annie started her Monthly Make campaign.2012 has been a tough one for our Mistress of Making; and I have so much admiration for the way she has handled everything life has thrown at her - without a pinch of self pity, just a healthy handful of dark humour. I'm proud to help her out this month; and I'll be checking out the other makes on blogs and in the flickr group. It's not too late to join in! Make something, take a picture, add it to the group. It's that simple.
November is going to be busy; and I'm hoping that I won't have to come back and add these cards as my Make.
After I'd used some of the skull fabric on my layout last week, I decided to take the same basic idea and turn the Pink Paislee frames (also from the Quirky kit) into cards. It's a twist on a card idea I spotted on the Pink Paislee blog and pinned to my Sweet Scrapbooking Pinterest board
The second one, with its "captured" motif got me thinking along a sheriff theme; so I made a badge with some ribbon and echoed it with a sunburst cut with the Slice. I spotted I had a left over piece of pink with a cut already made in it, so I used it to line the inside:
And that's me for today. All I have to do is remind you that next Sunday it's Storytelling Sunday time. Yes, really! So get thinking - for a theme how about "It was a dark and stormy night.."
But, of course, as always, stories on any subject at all are very welcome.
