Double Take

I made this card for the Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge blog sketch challenge I used DCWV Vintage card stack (I've used the ones I got for Christmas so much already!) a new Tilda stamp called Well-dressed Tilda, chatterbox ribbon and prima and papermania flowers along with some I had in my stash.
I realised after I finished it it was meant to be a thank you card, well I guess you could send a thinking of you one for thank you, as in thinking of you in thanks or something err maybe not...

I like it so much that I also made a desk calender for my desk at work! This time I used a Sarah Kay stamp called My Sweet Lili, but used the same layout, papers and embellishments. Its very unusual for me to actually want to make the same card twice but I really like the colours of these ones.
Yes I know I still haven't finished my main calender yet, I still have December to do but am all Christmas'd out so really don't have the enthusiasm to do it yet!

Hi Sarah,
Your card and the calender are both stunning. I love the colour combo on this one! How do you find the time to make such wonderful creations? Cant wait to get back to my crafting, dont think I'm going to get any free time till next week but hopefully it will be full steam ahead then (lol) Happy New Year to you.

Sarah, your work is just so beautiful and precise. You obviously take great care in it. I tend to have to make things in a bit of a hurry so they don't have quite the same, erm, polished look to them!! I have 5 kids and manage a fairly large property portfolio which is what saps most of my time!

I intend to invest in a few more stamps as I am being more and more inspired by the work I'm seeing on people's blogs.
