Happy New Year

I totally ran out of time in the run up to Christmas. I got so many orders in from my last jewellery party at the end of November that I didn't have time to make my own cards. I had a few left in my box so I used them for a family and friends and just managed to squeeze in a couple of really special ones. I wanted to send cards to all the couples who had given their support in 2007 but didn't get them made so I decided to send new year cards instead. I managed to get a few made this morning before anyone got up, so they can go in the post tomorrow. I don't usually make new year cards unless they are ordered so I enjoyed making these............all on a theme but different and all from the same piece of 12 x 12 paper from Junkitz!

Flowers are all Prima and ribbons, brads etc are all from my stash. All the 2008s were cut on the Craft Robo and I've used both the positive and negative cuts. I shall now get these addressed and start on the next lot!

DH is having a DIY day today. He bought me a David Cassidy calendar for Christmas (which contains pictures of some of the posters I had on my bedroom wall as a teenager! First thing DD2 asked when she saw it was "Who's that?") DH has just put the calendar up for me but it's meant moving a picture so now he is going to remount the picture and put me some shelves up!

Just in case I don't make it back over the next couple of days I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and a big thank you to all those who have left comments on my blog. I shall look forward to seeing all the fab work on everyone else's blog over the coming months.
