Sunday 6th January 2013

Happy New Year to all!!!

Isn't it great to be back to normal?  I enjoyed Christmas and the New Year, but I am really happy to be back to my usual routine.  I'm not really as boring as that sounds!!

My first workshop is not until Tuesday this week, so no cards to share with you at the moment, of my regular crafters celebrated her 59th Wedding Anniversary over the holiday, and below is the card I made for the occasion. I used the new Stampin'Up Stippled Blossoms stamp set, which I will certainly be using a lot more in the future. I was so pleased with the results it gave using the two step stamping technique.  It would have looked even better if I had masked the blossoms before using the lovely swirl from Everything Eleanor.

I am intending to be much more organised this year, and to prepare the projects we make at our classes and workshops, well in advance. I wonder how many of you intend to do the same! Good luck to us all!

Happy Crafting,
