Gorjuss New Year

First let me start off by saying a very belated Happy New Year to all my blogland friends.
Mine didn't start very well unfortunatly waking up on new years eve with flu, and after a look on the nhs website finding out it could possibably be swine flu!!
So i've been out of action till now, but i'm slowly starting to feel human again and today is the first time i've been near the room of stash in what seems like ages.
This is a little desktop calender a started b4 i got ill and now finally managed to finish.
I found a calender template online by googling, but Splitcoast Stampers also have some fab downloads if your a member.
I coloured the girls with my copics, the only differance was the sitting girl is done on smooth graphic 160gsm paper and the other on my new 180gsm cartridge paper, which i really am loving the effect of, the colours just blend so much better, not that you can tell this from the pic {or maybe you can}
I also used one of my new MS deep edge border punches and a couple of prima and paper flowers to finish, the papers used were BG.
This project fits in with a few of this weeks challenges including:
Papertake Weekly 'New Beginnings'
Stamp Something 'New somethings'
Secret Crafter 'New Beginnings'
and a very late but just in time entry for Daring Cardmakers 'New Beginnings'
♥ HUGZ ♥
