Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all hope everyone had a great time and you are all refreshed and ready for a new crafty year!!  I don't feel quite refreshed yet as my gorgeous little grandson Harrison has been up for New Year and he is only almost 15 months and a bundle of energy so I have been running around after him.  It certainly makes you realise you're not as young as you used to be but it it so worth it.

He's a bundle of gorgeousness but is into everything!! The tree ornaments were gradually getting higher and higher during his stay.   Now the house seems so quiet without him so I need to do some crafting to cheer myself up.

I've got a card that I made the other week for my husband's son in law who's birthday is on Christmas Eve so it was quite nice to take a break from last minute Christmas cards.

The image is a digital stamp from Lexi's creations as Andy loves golf.  The papers are digital from Raspberry Road.  I have used Kraft card as a base and the mat and stars and button are cut from an old cardboard box.  The twine and raffia are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cards for Men - Recycling
Heart Song Inspiration - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
The Kraft Journal - Anything Goes (must include Kraft cardstock)
The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes
I shall be round later to play catch up with everyone as it feels so long since things were "normal" in blogland!!  For now take care and hope you don't get blown away with all this wind xx

Wow, he is so cute, he looks like butter wouldn't melt, I bet you enjoyed having his company even if you are exhausted. Great card love the papers. It will be nice to get back to normal at last, nice as it is to have every one at home, I still like my routine.
Happy New Year to you and your family.
