Up up and away!

Hello to everyone and I sure hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and Santa was good to you!  It certainly doesn't seem like two minutes since we were all dashing around getting things ready does it?  My son and daughter-in-law and grandson are coming tomorrow for New Year which is so exciting and I am getting ready to do it all again lol!!  As I was having withdrawal symptoms from lack of blogging over the last few weeks I have hidden myself away in my craft room and done some crafting the last few days.  I have done my first two DT cards (gulp) so I can relax about those for a week and then I have done another card using some new stamps I got at Christmas.  They remind me of the old Nimble adverts remember them?  She flies through the air la la la - or something like that.

I have used Kraft card for the base and my new Hero Arts stamps.  The map is from Raspberry Road and they have a 50% sale on now yippee!! The label cut out the map is on is from Spellbinders and I have embossed it with circles but you can't really see that.  I have stamped the Card Candi with the compass stamp and the twine and button are from my stash.  Its just quite plain really because it is meant for a man so I kept it plain and simple.  I would like to enter in the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks - Something New (My stamps)
Crafty Creations - Gratitude/Thanks

I hope you all have a fabulous New Year and thanks so much to everyone for their kind comments that they have left over the last few months it does mean a lot and is very encouraging. I'm off to get a mince pie and brandy cream now (someone's gotta eat the beggars!!) Take care xx
