Happy New Year

Happy New Year all be it a few days late, lets hope I can blog more this year than last. Last year was a very difficult year for me as my Mum sadly passed away, so a fresh start for this year is very much needed. One thing I am looking forward to is my new craft room. I have arranged for cupboards and worktops to be added to the room I use to craft in and it should be ready by mid February. In the meantime I have to clear the room out, strip the wallpaper and then repaint!
The card I have for you today is just one of the cards I made to say thank you for our Christmas presents. I used a new stamp set by American Crafts, that I picked up for a bargain price of £1.99 in the Hobby Craft sale. On the base card I used green Memento ink and one of the border stamps from the set.I used a square post-it note to mitre the corners so I could get a more clean look. Mat and layered some light green and mid green card and topped the card with a flower cut with the Slice. The light green card and the cream flower have been sponged with Dusty Concorde distress ink and the flower was stamped with the Thank you stamp set using the green Memento pad. The card was finished off with four little purple flower beads that I found lurking in my stash.
Hope to be back soon, thanks for looking.
