Happy New YearHappy New Year everyone šŸ™‚

Well today is the 1st Anniversary of my blog and I’m chuffed to bits to have reached my firstĀ milestone – even if my photography skills don’t seem to have improved much over the last year!

A great opportunity to say “Thank You” to those of you that check in with me and see what I’ve been up to andĀ also to those who set the challenges for us to enter throughout the year.

Anyway,Ā having packed away the Christmas tree and decorationsĀ for another year (I know I do it earlier than you should), I managed to create this card thisĀ afternoon, taking inspiration from the current Mojo Monday layout and the ABC Challenge of Embossing.

The base card is 6×6, onto which I have matted some kraft card and some white card, which has been embossed using the garden lattice m-bossibility folder.Ā  I’ve then matted and layered some moreĀ cardĀ to create the smaller square and this has been stamped around the edges with some faux stitching stamps, which I think were from Papermania.Ā  The letters have been cut out using First Steps sizzlets and the bear is a Forever Friends layered die.

This card will be winging its way over to America within the next day or two, as unfortunately I didn’t have an address for a friend of mine who livesĀ there and have had to wait for her Christmas card to arrive with her new address.Ā  So I’m hoping this will make up for the lack of a Christmas card and her Birthday card šŸ˜›

Well that’s all for now, the animals need their tea, as do I, but I’ll be back again soon
