Well, here it is - 2009 - and I for one am happy to embrace it. 2008 was good for many things but it also brought heartache as I'm sure it did for most of us, but nows the chance to remember all the good things with pleasure and to put all the bad things behind us. What a wonderful chance to "start again" the new year gives us.
I am very new to blogging but it doesnt take a genius to realise there are a lot of lovely people out there and I am really looking forward to getting to know you all, I have already been inspired by the work of many of you and I hope to improve my cardmaking as a result, but at the end of the day - it's a hobby and an addiction and as such should mainly bring alot of pleasure.
I've made two cards "this year" one is for the 2 sketches 4 U challenge(I hope I didnt cheat too much by subsituting circles for hearts and I stuck on three heart brads top left instead of bottom right) but I have just downloaded the new Pink Petticoat papers and couldnt wait to use them, such an impatient girl. The second card has been made using Funky Hand papers which I downloaded, a big thanks to Kath cos I found their site through her blog. The card was actually made for Terrie as a belated birthday wish but mainly cos of another reason which now escapes me!!!!!! a little quiz for you Terrie:- the dress image (courtesy of Pink Petticoat) has something missing, can you guess what it is? Is it possible I've used digital software to remove it - shame on
Tomorrow (now that we know each other so well) I'm going to tell you about Sophie - Who? - well pop back tomorrow and you'll find out. Have a great day.
