Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a good Christmas...mine was hectic at first, but after visiting all the relatives, I had a very quiet Christmas, but that is just how I like it. Is it really a month since my last post?? I suppose I've had a lot on my mind recently and just haven't been able to focus on crafting. I'm happy to report things are settling down a bit now and I hope that I can get my crafting butt back into gear!

Now there is nothing like a simple card to get me back in crafting mode and this little dandelion stamp I bought just before Christmas was perfect for the job.

And of course there is nothing like a challenge to get me moving, so I also made a card for this week's One Layer Week challenge over at Simplicity, which is to use yellow.

I don't use yellow very often, but I love this mustard shade.

Just a little bit of Glamour Dust and a huge bow, job done.

Right I'm off to finish all my Thank You cards, have good weekend!

  1. Stamp: Personal Impression "Make a Wish"
  2. Ink: Archival Ink in Mustard and Colourbox in Heliotrope
