LOTV New Stamp for a New Year, Flowers!


Well, it's my first blog of this new year and I have to say that when I stared out sometime last year I had no idea of how much I would enjoy doing it.  When I think of how frustrating it was to get started not knowing really what to do but having heard how easy it was, which I didn't find,  here I am feeling much more confident about it all.   There are all the great folk I've met too through the blog, and the fantastic inspiration and help from them is just so wonderful. I love reading peoples stories.  It always strikes me how diverse we all are but have at least one thing in common....crafting in so many different styles.

I've had a lovely time over Christmas and New Year, and the fact that I've had such a long spell off from work is just fantastic and I've still almost a full week to go.  Only thing is that the longer I'm off the less I want to go back, oh well all good things come to an end.  I won't get depressed just yet about it.

We spend last night with friends who live on the Black Isle and had a great time with their other guests singing, eating, and drinking, and  arrived back home late afternoon in time to watch  Ben-Hur for the millionith time. 

I do have a card to share today, I'v managed to get a little ahead with them,
I've used one of the new LOTV stamps and coloured it with Promarkers. The sentiment is also LOTV.  papers are Papermania Lincon Green collection as are the tiny buttons, Memory Box Lacewing Butterfly die, WO flowers, and The Ribbon Girl lace.

I would like to enter this card into http://wildorchidchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/challenge-66-anything-goes.html  and


That's me for today, many thanks for stopping by and I hope if you like what you see you'll leave a comment.  In fact even if you don't like let me know you were here.

Kat I love your choice of colours and image for this card...it almost makes me wish Spring was here, it's my favourite time of year...the promise of light nights, warmth and more crafting time!
