Hello there and a big Happy New Year to you all!  I hope you all had a wonderful festive holiday and are all raring to go.  I had a fabulous time, very hard work with a lot of entertaining but I loved every second!  My son and grandsons left yesterday after coming up for New Year so sorry I have not been round to see you but I have literally not stopped.

 I am late posting this as there is a new challenge at A Little Bit Crafty and the theme this month is Celebrate.  We want to see your creations with the theme of celebrations - this could mean Birthdays, New Year, new job, new birth, engagement, anniversary, wedding and so on.  It does not have to be card you can enter anything crafty you have made yourself.  Here is my card:

The image is Whiff of Joy and I coloured it with my Copics. I don't know who the paper is by I didn't write it down!  The shutters are a Poppy die and I used MFT Dienamics Blueprints for the mat.  I made a window box and scored it with my Scor-Pal and added the flowers.  The ivy is a Marianne die and the little sentiment tags are LOTV.  The flowers were very kindly donated by Petal Lu, one of our sponsors this month - thank you! Here is another view:

We have some wonderful sponsors this month:

£10 Selection of Blossoms

Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CD

£15 Voucher to Spend at Scribble and Scrap

I am so sorry I can't provide the links to the sponsors but my pc is playing up big time this morning it has taken me 50 minutes just to do this so I am afraid I will have to leave it at this for now.  If it starts behaving later I will try and get back to link up and maybe enter a challenge!

Thank you so much for looking and I am going to catch up with you all!! Take care xx
