Oh I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!

Is it me or are the months passing at a pace?
It was that time again on the first of the month for the 365 day calender and, erh, well, as you can see I'm a wee bit late. 
My excuse......I have been a busy little bee! 
Honest!

Firstly I would like to say a big "THANK YOU" and "HI" to all the lovely crafty ladies that visited me on Saturday in Howden's Garden centre at Inverness, I had a great time making cards and hope you all enjoy playing with your new purchases.

Then on Sunday we had our local crop in the village. 
It was lovely to see three new faces at the crop Paula, Lynda and Sandra who travelled from Nairn.
Thank you also to Jo for the T-shirts, a little boy got very excited when I showed him them.
Finally, more big thanks too go out to Tracy for my lovely little owl on my calender page....mind you...it cost me today!!!  (And you know why!!)
I had a lovely afternoon crafting and this is what I made:


Products:

Distress inks:  Crushed olive, Peeled paint, Walnut stain and Vintage photo.
The tree trunk I printed from the computer and created a stencil and the leaves I cut by hand in 3 shades of green.  The lettering was done on my cricut with stone script.
The stamps are from PaperArtsy.
The owl is from Sizzix...and he is so cute.  Tracy thanks for making him up for me. x

Why not pop over to The Kathryn Wheel and have a look at everyone else's diaries. 
It is amazing how different they all are even though we are all following the same challenge.

Finally for today I will show you my May completed, sorry it's a bit squint....it was getting late when I took the pic.


Did anyone notice I have used the same stamps!!!  Tut, tut.
I just love them,
 but I promise a totally different theme for July,
you'll just have to pop back and see.
Happy crafting,
catch you again tomorrow. x
