Happy Saturday to you! I hope you are well and if you’re anything like me your busy preparing for Christmas with shopping and what not.  We got our tree up last night – funny story as hubby wanted a 5 foot tree and we sorta ended up coming home with a 7 foot tree! Thats ok cos it was in sections so we just left one section out and wallah – instant 5 foot tree!! So glad he only got the box of 300 Christmas Tree lights and not the box of 600 lights!!

Now being Saturday its time for another Sketch challenge from Utah Divas International group and here is this week’s sketch …

Now I can see you imagining a lovely simple Christmas card with some snowflakes – right??

Well thats what I thought to start with but then my mind started to wander and since tomorrow I have a Project Class on I wanted to make something with this sketch – something that could be used either by the ladies coming or given as a gift for Christmas and this is what I came up with ….

I’ve used the new Spiced Cake DSP in the new Summer Mini Catalogue and I just love this paper and can see me going through quite a few packs over the next few months!

This would make a great gift for Mums, Dads, or students on their desk or maybe even as a Teacher Thank You gift.  It could lie flat on your desk or pop a couple of magnets on the back and attach it to the fridge.

I hope you like this little message centre and I hope the ladies like it tomorrow too!

Dont forget to stop by the Utah Divas International Blog for links to what the other Designing Divas have created with this sketch.



  1. Very nice project – especially at this time of year. I imagine it will be a great tool for keeping on track of holiday to-dos!
    Did you create your calendar from MDS?

  2. Leonie, this is fabulous! I too am in love with the Spice Cake paper. Here in the US we have only one month left to buy it. I’m sure going to miss is when it retires. Get it while you can!

  3. Great project Leonie. This paper is v v PURDY too. I am impressed that you found the 2012 mini calendars. I went to get some this year only to be told that the place where I got them fm is not doing them anymore. I was v v lucky to get some of fsomeone who had excess…but curiosity has gotten the better of me…..where did u source ur fm???
