365 Calendar

Oh my I'm late again but I'm actually amazed I've made it through the whole of the year.
I can't believe that's a whole 12 months done and dusted...
well nearly
I've just got to fill in December first, here it is;

I'm afraid the quality of the picture really isn't the best
the weather here yesterday when I took it was very dark and snowy,
not the best of conditions.

I have used;
Distress inks Vintage photo, Evergreen bough, Crushed olive, Pine needles and Iced spruce.
The greens are layered on my tree and the background is Iced spruce and Vintage photo.
I have also used stamps to create texture  Dot Pattern by Hero arts and SU, Swirls by Anita's and Fanciful flourishes from Simply Homemade magazine.
The labels are Shapeabilities Holiday tags and Nestabilities Heirloom ornament 2011 by Spellbinder dies.
Foam sentiment stickers by Thickers which I have covered with Martha Stewart "Peridot" fine glitter to match. 
String from stash.
I think I am having a thing for Kraft just now, 
I have stamped on it too but my camera has not picked it up.
Don't you just love this cold winter ideal time to wrap up warm, stay in and craft!

Here is my November all done and dusted too;

You will need to look back to November the 8th for more details on that one.

For more calendars why not pop on over to Kate's blog,
scroll back to the beginning of the month and you'll find everyone elses there. 
I can't believe how different they all are even if the same theme pops up.
Thanks Kate for this great monthly challenge this year,
