December Calendar Challenge

pheweeeee, I've done it, a year long challenge organised by the super dooper Kate at the Kathryn Wheel for the second year I think.  It's been a good challenge, not too overly demanding of your time, and even though as I'm sure like everyone this year has bought some challenging moments, we have survived.  I must admit to failing towards the end of the year of writing in the squares daily and having to really test the old brain cells to remember what I'd been doing, notice the two gaps in November, no idea on those days at all (LOL).  Through this challenge I've found some great art from other participants, which I will continue to follow, so without further ado, I present the very last month DECEMBER


no real plan when I started this one, just tried different things to add that seasonal feeling, nice cheery blocks of xmas paper to write on, some of them may be a wee bit challenging to actually write on, LOL, and here is my finished November page


to all those who have been kind enough to visit this year and to leave comments, I thank you and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and lets hope 2012 brings the whole country a better year.  And to Kate who has also had a very challenging year,but continued with the challenge and creating her great art, oh and two fab DVD's, thank you so much.

Mwah !

I tried to stop by yesterday, but the Linky tool was not working. One of the first things I noticed was you are a stamper. Great pages and beautiful colors.
