CCT: Something new

Wheyhey, another nice easy challenge to ease back into over on CCT - simply to use something new you got over the christmas/new year period. So for me, nice and easy as the copic markers are new as are the 'love' ticket and the 'feb 14' seal stamp.

This is the second month of the calender I started back here and which I was supposed to have finished by now (but then hubby scuppered all my plans LOL.) My plan is to use all Magnolias throughout and I just had to use this pair of skating Tilda/Edwin for Feb as I think they look so romantic like that!


  • Images: tilda couple skating from new year Magnolia range, feb 14 seal stamp from their valentine range.
  • Colouring: Copic caio marker pens - my fantastic xmas pressie off hubby (I got 108 of them!!!)
  • DP : all the dp and stickers are from the calender bundle kit which goes with the blank calender and you can buy both the bundle and blank calender at a fantastic reduced price at the moment, from Silly Monkeys, here. Makes it super easy to put together, especially if you are behind like me! Just 10 more months to go (swore I wouldn't be doing this again about this time last year LOL)
  • Other:'love' ticket from Tim Holtz 'adage' set
Here's a view showing the rest of the calender a bit better - still needs sprucing up but it'll do for now. 2 down, 1o to go!
