Hi everyone!  Happy New Year!!

I've been away from my blog for so long that I actually had to think a minute to remember how to do a that's pretty bad!  I want to say thank you so much for continuing to check in on me and I want to send all of my new subscribers a big hug and thanks so much for joining me here on my blog.

Things at my house have been super busy, I've been having lots of family time and of course lots of cuddles and kisses from my sweet little granddaughter, oh my...she's so much fun!   Here's a picture my daughter took of her before Christmas, what a little cutie!!

                                                                  Waiting for Santa

We had a great Christmas but we all got that awful Norovirus flu and it left us feeling worn out, thank goodness our little darling didn't get it!  We're all recovered now, but I haven't been stamping for ages and I'm hoping my muse hasn't left me!!

Here is the Christmas card I made this year....each year I run out of time, so I just made a few to send out and *gasp*... I actually bought cards to send out this year!  I keep telling myself that I'll be more organized but I really think that I need to do a few each month so I don't need to resort to buying cards again!  LOL!!  The card turned out really pretty, it didn't take a good photo though.

I used Pink Pirouette and double embossed the layer using the Polka Dot and Tulip Frame embossing folders.  I used silver glimmer paper for the snowflakes, adding a rhinestone in the centres and the image is clip art from the internet, matted on Pool Party cardstock.  I added dazzling diamonds to the image but it doesn't show in the pretty though!

I would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year, full of all the things that are special to you!  I wish you joy, peace, the love of family and friends and buckets full of creativity and the time to enjoy crafting!

Thanks so much for visiting me and for sharing your time with me today!  It's good to be back, I missed you!!

Hugs ~ Judy
