New Year Hugs


New Year wishes to one and all! As we brought in the new year i thought this card was a bit appropriate to cherish these moments that we live for each and every day. I have only been blogging for six months and in that time have come across so much creative work and joy that bloggers display and on the other hand blogging families suffering so much sorrow that their new year is not so happy as mine and I spare a thought for those who have been hit by tragedy.
On to a much lighter note now I have got that out.This creation was so much fun to do based on the wonderful Claudia's sketch and if you don't know, visit this brilliant lady's blog and I promise you will not be disappointed. How these creations are thought through, I don't know but they are truly amazing and very talented. Onto my card...
On a 5 inch square base I've used paper that I bought off QVC as scrapbook pages but not used them until now, gold mirri board rounded off with my new christmas present, set of 4 Fiskars scissors with different decorative edges, the corners which I rounded off have been used in the 2 corners of the card so no waste, then another layer of the pretty paper, then some DCWV cardstock edged with scissors and faux stitched in black, Sarah Kay Sweet Lili image gently watercoloured and glamour dust added, lifted with foam pads, sentiment by Funstamps picked up for a pound in town, and a pretty paper flower with pink brad to finish! Hope you like :) and enjoy the rest of the first day of 2009!!!
