no more spotty sage after this, i promise!!! {not for a while anyway...}


This is the "creation" that started this weeks obsession with the gorgeous spotty sage, but I couldn't let you see cos it's my DT piece for this weeks Tilda & co number challenge!
I'm awful at remembering birthdays, yes they are written on my calendar, but this gets swamped with kid stuff, so birthday's end up lost amongst the scribbles reminding me when swimming lessons are & which days the trumpet needs to go to school!
Sooooo...now li'l Edwin hangs above my craft desk, with everyone's birthday written on ~ I've been meaning to make something along these lines for ages & when Donna's email arrived telling me what this weeks challenge was, I was finally given the push I needed!

Only another 11 to make...

I like your dotty sage! and what a fabulous idea for the numbers challenge. I'm going to redo the instructions for the slider card, but you can find some on my blog under tips and techniques. I'll try and do it as pdf file so it can be downloaded, but might need some help with it .. .. .. an idiots guide needed for me!
