Magical New Year.

Hi there,
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, plenty of quality time with family and friends and one or two gifts to spoil yourselves with.
I had a wonderful time, Emma who is nearly 5 was in total awe of Santa coming and her face was so emotional. Bless - to be a child again ....

I did have a little play as I thought I might loose my mojo if I didn't do something .. this is what I created. I tried to paint with DI's - not my usual forte but it turned out better than expected. Again I was trying to use up all sorts of old crafting embelishments and found these chipboard leaves which I have a coat of DI to. There is plenty of sparkle and a hat pin, but these haven't shown up well in the photo.

Challenges:-
Tomic - Happy New Year.
Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Happy New Year.

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and are able to keep any resolutions you intend to make!!!!

Hugs and Best wishes,

Posing Perfectly

Hello ladies,
Had to just pop on to see how you are all doing. Still busy buying the last minute things, checking your own lists to make sure that everything has been done? I've worked so much over the last couple of weeks that I haven't crafted for a while - I'm so behind on everything - just written my Christmas cards - still got all the presents to wrap!
I did take time out to see Emma in her Pantomime = she was the Donkey in the Nativity - (sadly the donkey only had one eye - now don't laugh) - she was ever so cute along with all the other little ones. Sadly your not allowed to take group photos of your child in the nativity with everyone elses child BUT they are allowed to publish a group photo in the local paper?!!!!????!

Here is the card I made with one of my new stamp received kindly from Funky Kits via The Sugar Nellie Christmas Giveaway - isn't she just gorgeous? I haven't done the Christmas route = rather a fresh looking card which I hope you like.
It fits the Sugar Bowl Sketch and I love Promarkers colour scheme of blue and White.

Well I must crack on and get my list done of all the finishing touches I need to get done this week! As I may not be blogging this side of Christmas .........


MAY I WISH YOU ALL A WONDER CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR, WITH HEALTH WEALTH OF PROSPERITY SENT YOUR WAY.

MAY SANTA BRING YOU EVERYTHING YOU WISH FOR & MORE


BIG HUGS TO YOU ALL


and thank you for your support and stopping by my place, I may not be as big as some,

or as fancy as others, or as talented as most,

but I really do appreciate you taking time to have a look.

With love,

Special Delivery

Hi there,
Is old Father Time speeding things up? I think he is having a little play with time as it seems to be just flying by. Still got so much to do, work getting busy busy busy!
However I did have a night out and guess who I had a cuddle from ..................... the one and only Frank Bruno! he had such a firm grip and asked me if I wanted some hubba hubba! lol - think this was his punch line to make me smile for the camera! He hasn't aged at all!
Hubby, I and a few good friends attended a Charity Night at which he was a guest of honour. A good night was had all round, a few cheeky drinks and a Kebab to round it off - (not had a night like that for quite a while - years in fact!)

Anyhows, here is my card, finally got one to blog about!
A sweet simple one, I sent all my cards to my SIL for her Church Fayre so I am starting from scratch building up a collection - starting from New borns.

This one fits the Lili of the Valley challenge - Anything but a Christmas Card.

Thanks for taking time to pop by.

Hugs
