Welcome November....

Well, November brings us the much cooler air, the shorter days and the countdown to the first snowfall. Not looking forward to the snow coming. For my calendar today I played with those adorable images from Whimsey Stamps! I just think they are so precious. I have been so busy lately with family life and teaching classes at Stamping Bella that it has not left a whole lot of time for personal crafting! So today I am very behind posting my November page!


I must tell you, my love is the distress inks and that is what I brought out to colour my image today. Now, I know it does not reflect the season....but I just wanted to bring a little colour and prettiness to my Calendar, after all, I have to look at it for a month!
Now there are a few of us that love to do these calendar pages....so if you would like to take a peak and see what Monique, Kathryn, Julie, Tangii and Lisa have done to their calendars I have them linked up! If you would like to join us too each month just send an email my way and we would love to have you join in!
I also wanted to send out an apology for not coming by your blogs lately.....I have been so busy lately and have not found alot of time. But I promise to make more time....as this is were all my inspiration comes from...you guys!

I love this page, Christine, and whereas it is probably much chillier where you are, here in Florida we are having our first really lovely day of warm sunshine since October (tee hee) so your image is perfect! Congratulations BTW - you were the winner at Dorcas Designs! Can't wait to see what you come up with! Hugs Lesley

  12. Hi Christine, I just popped over from Dorcas' Blog. Congratulations on your win. Dorcas is right-you are very talented. I love your calendar pictures. I did visit your blog and saw the amazing recipe cards you completed. I had a plan to do one of these books for my daughter. Now I have to rethink since your are so beautiful and detailed. Perhaps I will work on them and give them to her for her birthday rather than Christmas:) I am a new follower.

  23. Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks!
