More Frosty Scenes

Really this is me dreaming of a white Christmas... school holidays are now upon us, and all we get is rain! North Finland has -30 centigrade. I wouldn't like it to be that cold, but -5 would be enough to bring the moisture down as snow instead of rain :)

I have been taking part in the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge this year: one page every month, and now I have a full calendar, whoopie! Actually I've been working on three calendars, and this is the second finished one. Besides the calendar challenge (Gold/Silver and Trees) I'm posting for the Craft Barn weekly challenge (trees), the Country View challenge (Create a Scene), the Our Creative Corner challenge (Wish Upon a Star) and the SimonSaysStamp Monday challenge (Just a Pinch... =gold)

This whole (January-December) calendar has been made by collaging underpapers. It is certainly my favourite of the ones I've been working on, always breaking a smile on me.  I stitched around the collage pieces with my sewing machine, and picked a gold yarn to add some bling. I sewed it on with a narrow zigzag stitch.  Love the glimmer and texture on this paper! My kids demanded that this isn't given away, it will be the one we have on our own wall :)
