I hope this year is all you want it to be and more.
Terry and I had a really relaxed Christmas and New Year....we would loved to have had Naomi, Grant and my Mum with us...but we have got used to that now. I had a lovely Christmas day in the UK when I went over which was really special and it really didn't matter that the date was not 25th December...it was just like a Christmas should be!!
The opening of the Reachout centre has kept me very busy but I have managed a little crafting in the last few days.
In total I made 4 cards for the boys in the family...all very similar, just the girls to go.I do like to get all the Birthday cards done for the family at this time of year.It's a job ticked off my list and always seems to get me back crafting again after the holiday period.
Card blank, ribbon and the plain backing papers are from my stash.
The patterned backing paper was bought on a holiday to Canada.
The light blue paper is the inside of a business envelope!
The image is ages old and is a Magnolia Edwin stamp.
I coloured the image with ProMarkers.
Martha Stewart punch.
The new items are the very versatile candi from Craftworks...first time I have used them and I love them.
I would like to add this card to the following Challenges:
Pile it on #1 - Anything Goes.
Anything Goes Challenge - Blue + 1 other colour.
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes.
Ribbon Carousel Challenge # 34 - Anything Goes
