Happy New Year!


Our first challenge of 2017 over at STAMPING SENSATIONS is

********Coffee and Cream********

and we have a lovely prize up for grabs this month!!


Hopefully you will all be getting back into the swing of things again and have time to enter!!

I got a lovely box of Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils (essentials set) from my Son Deaglan  for Christmas which I used to colour this lovely little stamp, which I treated myself too over Christmas.
It was a real challenge this time. 1. using similar tone pencils 2. a CAS design into the bargain lol. But this is my finished card and I am happy enough for a first attempt with the pencils.

I am entering this into

Well how did you put in your New Year's Eve. Ours was pretty quiet besides the constant ping from phones lol. We got some snacks out, watched a film and tried our very best to see in the new year but failed at 11:30! But by the time we got into bed, the fireworks were blasting away outside so we did actually see it in lol. Lets hope its a healthy and happy new year for us all.
Thanks for dropping by and be sure and enter this months challenge!!

Our new years eve was much the same Pinky, but the only fireworks we heard were much earlier - there again we do live in the middle of nowhere !

A great card for our first theme of 2017 and also perfect for Allsorts this week, many thanks for joining in.

Happy New Year to you and yours and hope it's a really crafty 2017.

Great colouring on this card!
Same here for our New Year - a day which is tinged with a little sadness as it was Mum's birthday so we now don't do much - just remember silly times with one sparkler on a birthday cake! Usual slob about on the sofa watching TV but we did manage to stay awake for the fireworks display which we can see in the valley below, raised a glass of G and T and then to bed! Happy New Year to you and yours.x
