Its been a while!!

Well its been ages since I posted and unfortunately with good reason as my other half is being made redundant and I just havnt had the urge to craft.( or to comment especially sorry for the wonderful crafters who join in the Allsorts and Forever friends challenges who I DT on normal commenting will resume a.s.a.p)...I was putting all my efforts into having a great family Christmas so we would remember it as a happy time and not one tainted with the unfortunate news!!

But we had a fantastic Christmas and I am now looking forward to get right back into the crafty stuff....

New Years resolution to always look on the brighter side ( as the diet I started yesterday didnt seem to agree with the baileys I have just had lol!!)

So to start my crafty new year off I decided to join in with the always fab challenge at Papertake weekly which was a fab sketch from Dawny P

I used a fab coco image from Digistampboutique so pretty and lovely to colour, papers are from my minds eye and flowers are from my stash

The next card is for the challenge at Anyone for Anya and the theme this week is anything goes so I made thsi card for my sil she loves pink so thought she would like this,

The image was given to me by the lovely Tasha thanks hun

Thanks for stopping by...
