A flower for you ....

Morning Folks!
I know I am a bit late but Happy New Year to you all!
I can't believe it has been so long since my last post, but I have blown the dust off my blog and am hoping that 2016 is a bit more productive - finger's crossed. Here's my first make this year, for the new 'Flowers' challenge over at Sweet Stampin', a small calendar for my craft room which originally started life as a coaster.

Here's a closer look, check out the new paper - back to basics bright spark - which 'fell' into my basket at The Range last weekend ... it was in the bargain bin so it seemed rude to leave it there!!

Details -
Stamp: Penny Black 'Delights'
Papers: Dovecraft Back to Basics Bright Spark
Die cut - Nestabilities
Embellishments from Stash
Calendar tab - Docrafts

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog xx
