Happy New Year!

Hi there all! I hope you've all had a great time over Christmas? Mine has been good but both Lucy and myself have fallen foul of a flu type virus that's going around - not good but better than the norovirus at least! Anyway - a lovely day was had by all - a picture of my sweeties in their new nighties:

That's a funny face our Penny is pulling!!!!!

Got up into my attic today and had a chance to play with a few of the new things that santa brought - my favourite has to be my daylight lamp - how did I ever work at night without it? Anyway - this is what I made - its for a card swap over on the Joanna sheen forum.

The image is LOTV - finally inked up after being bought at a show in October - the other new things I've used are my die to cut the card shape and also the cherry blossom dies from spellbinders. The image is coloured - as ever, with promarkers.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

tuesdayalchemy: Anything goes
kaboodledoodles: New Year
polkadoodle: New Year
promarkerchallenge Happy Sentiment
LOTV:liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge Something new (stamp and dies).

Hopefully back again soon! Got some DT work to get on top of so I may be absent for a while - I hope to have time to play though!!! Hugs and thanks for visiting!!!
