HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!


I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas! I had a fabulous time with my lovely family, my Grandson Luca had just the best time opening all his presents. He even took some of the Playmobil that I bought for him to bed. There is nothing like seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child is there.

I have made a card today using some of the Magnolia Stamp club stamps. I have coloured my image with distress inks (can't wait for Tim's new distress inks to be released soon). The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with vintage photo and stickles.

I have punched my border with the ms punch. The flowers and leaves are punched too. The rose paper has been glimmer misted and I have stamped swirls onto the background and paper. The papers, flowers, leaves and sentiment have been distressed with vintage photo.

Thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2010!!!
