Happy New Year

I would like to wish each and everyone of my lovely followers a Happy New Year for 2011.  2010 was not the best of years but as we know a new one has now started and I would like to take the time to thank you all for the lovely comments and emails received with best wishes for my wonderful hubby Brian.   He is starting to feel a bit better but we still have a long way to go.  It is amazing how something can happen that can change your whole perspective on life, it is far too short to worry about silly things, take each day as it comes and live life to the fullest.

With the New Year about to be upon us I have made a decision to try and post at least one card a week on my blog as I have to say that I have missed my crafting but I am hoping that my mojo will return now that mentally I am in a better place.

So without further ado, here is my creation to celebrate the 1st day of a new year.

This card was done for a young lady who was turning 13 and as easel cards are my favourite at the moment I opted for this.  All the papers used are the "With this Ring" collection by Nitwits - they are just a dream to work with and the image from  is from Kenny K's was just perfect I thought.

Thanks again for all your support and I look forward to being back with you all in blogland.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Totally Gorgeous - Someone Special
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Anything Goes
