Hi, I am sorry i have been missing from action for past weeks or so, i have not been keeping very well. Between the Kidney disease and the Auto immune Disease they have me beaten this week! Anyway, needless to say this post is a few days late and the style of card is out of my comfort zone but i am quite pleased with the way it came out...nothing like i had in my head though.

The theme for the Elphine House Australia Challenge for the next 2 weeks is.....

Whats New - Crafty Calendar Challenge!

Hi I hope you have had a good weekend! I have had such a busy weekend making clothes for Carrie's teddy called "Lili"! Santa left Lily for Carrie with a tag on her asking Carrie to look after because she didnt have a Mummy, she has hardly put it down! We were looking in the Bear Factor store at outfits for the teddy but they are expensive so she only got a few. This all planted a seed in my head so when we got home out came the sewing machine and i got to it! Lili now has a better wardrobe than me and my sewing machine was probably  in shock, its hardly ever had material near it..only card and papers!

Anyway enough of that. I am here with my DT card for Crafty Calendar Challenge! The theme this month is
"Whats New?!"
It can be anything new at all from new stash to new baby, new year, new job...whatever is new in your life!

The sponsor this month is the one and only Elphine House Australia. As my readers know i design for EHA and have been with them since the company opened so its special to me. I have got 2 EHA stamps to give away as the prize.
