Calendar Swap with Rosy

It has been quite some time since I shared any of my papercrafts so I thought I would share the six Calendar pages I have made so far this year. I am doing a swap with a Stamping/Email Pal in the USA. We have never met but enjoy our friendship via emails.
We decided on making our pages have the theme of Flowers and Insects. I am using an old calendar stamp by Hero Arts for the base of the dates and the numbers are a set of alphas and numbers by Hero Arts.Also I am using an old set of Flowers of the Year by Hero Arts. These stamps for each month have that month's flower on them.  I am enjoying making these and posting one off each month to my friend in the USA.

Here are the pages I have made for the first six months of 2012:

Summer Cyber Crop at Ideal Papercrafts - Card Challenge

Ideal papercrafts is holding their March Cybercrop and the theme is Summer - well Summer is officially over but it is nice to do summery scrapbook pages.
I always enjoy doing the card challenges and for this one we had to have the following on our card:  Sticker, Stamping and String.
It was good to dig out the loopy brads as I hardly ever use them and still have oodles of them in different colours.

First card for 2011 for a challenge

This is a card created using a Sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.
Once I would never use a sketch for my card making but now I enjoy doing so. This card is made ready for sending to my sister-in-law for her 70th Birthday later this month. Blenda's favourite colour is green which is why I chose these colours for the card.

Christmas Card Challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

Towards the end of last year I took part in a Christmas Card Challenge ( the cards shared in previous postings) and it was a lovely surprise to be the one who won the major prize. This is a photo of the prize - a blank recipe folder. Until I receive the prize I am not sure what I will be doing with it. I think the pages inside are blank and maybe pocket type pages so I may use it as a special photo album.
