Happy New Year!

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good Christmas and I'm here to wish you a very Happy, prosperous and crafty New Year !!
We had a lovely time in Portsmouth with Charlie and thoroughly enjoyed seeing him understand all about Christmas this year.
It's been nice to make something other than Christmas cards, although I am going to try and make one a week, that's my resolution for 2015 :) So here are a couple of cards for different occasions that I've made with some new dies:

Couture border die and MB butterfly

Tonic verso frame

Tonic verso and matching sentiment die

As above

Just off to get ready for the evening, we are off to a local hotel for a dinner dance with our usual crew of three other couples, we've been friends for 36 years ;)

Once again, happy new year and I will see you on the 4th when I will be posting my GD card for Stamping Sensations.

Hi everyone I hope you are all surviving the stresses and strains of the Christmas preparations and avoiding the awful germs going around!
Jim has managed to pick up a dreadful cough and cold and has spent 3 days in bed, men always seem to take it to the extreme :) I'm ok thank goodness although I did have a poorly day on Sunday but just dosed myself up and away it went!
I thought I'd show you a photo of my friend and I at the BBC doing the news, it was a brillinat tour and I would highly recommend it:

We had a lovely weekend with Charlie and got to visit the Christmas market at Winchester which was very festive.
I have managed to finish all my present wrapping and Christmas cards are all sent! We should have been in Somerset visiting my sister Karen but because Jim isnt well we have had to postpone until the weekend and then we are off to Portsmouth on Wednesday for Christmas. When Charlie heard we were all coming down he said "hooray".
Here are a few of my cards that I have been making:

A box card for Charlie

A Xmas tree for Keir & Lara

I have a few more but they are being given out on Thursday and I don't want the recipients to see them :)

It just leaves me to say Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends and I hope you have a wonderful time and a happy and prosperous New Year!
