Happy New Year... Belated!!!

Well, I'm back, eventually! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year... Best Wishes to you all for 2012, I hope it'll be a year filled with good health and happiness for all of us! For me personally, 2011 wasn't a good year at all, so I'm hoping that 2012 will bring me better things...

For me, the holiday period was lovely, quiet spending time at home with my hubby and my parents who were visiting from the UK. It was just nice to be with the people I love ;) I did, however, eat a bit too many chocolates, and I made some lovely mulled wine on Christmas Eve that had a kick with the brandy... it was definately not for the light weights lol ;) New Year was a quiet family night in, with lots of food and telly... I watched Alan Carr who had me in stitches... he is a funny 'un! And here we are 2012...

I do apologise for the latenes in posting my DT card for the NEW challenge at Digi Designs Challenge Blog, but lets just say I had a few technical hitches... anyway you have until Friday 13th (superstitious?) to make a card/project for the challenge and we want to see all things NEW! Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen, who is giving away a £10 gift voucher to spend in her online store! My card is done using a lovely digi stamp called New Home from Di's Digi Downloads, coloured with Promarkers. The paper is Basic Grey and the sentiment stamp is from Stampavie. It's a New Home card (obviously)... I would have used some new stash but I didn't get any (sobs, shock, horror), nope not a sausage! Well, I did buy myself a daylight lamp last week so I suppose I should count that as new stash... I have to say, it's fabulous!!!

Well, I'm raising my mug of tea in a toast to 2012, and to thank you all for your continuing support and friendship! Cheers!
