Happy New Year!

Well. as 2010 is nearly over, I just wanted to wish you all a very happy, healthy, peaceful new year.

I have had a chance to play with some new stash - my sister in law and brother came over the other day with my Christmas present that had got delayed in the post - toys!!!

 It's ok, Lynne - I won't tell them what you did with the box of gems. (But I am still finding them....) tee hee, bet you thought you'd got away with it!!
So I used the pine trees on a tag - coloured with a mixture of distress ink and some eco-green paint (green patina, which has a glorious shimmer to it)
I made a rosette with some of the lost and found paper stack in suitable colours, and a small pearl at the centre (something Lynne and I decided would look good the other day)

The stamp is part of a Christmas one that I got back out of the drawer, and I made a couple of tissue tape ruffles to accent it.

If you're going out tonight, have a fabulous time - don't drink too much - get home safely - have fun!  I will be staying home and watching the London fireworks on TV in bed.... sad that I am!

Going out off to a party in a moment.

Staying home tonight probably means you'll be a lot more in shape to play with your new goodies tomorrow! Wishing you the happiest and crafiest of new years:):)

Well, I guess it's already 2011 over there, so... Happy New Year! You'll love those new PP colors, I really love the espresso. Your tag is wonderful, that L & F paper makes great rosettes!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year Helen and thanks for your support in 2010.

And here's to a change of luck on the pitch.......not sure Roy's new Year will be too positive listening to the news.

Got me intrigued as to where the missing items are???? Lovely tag - that is a great folder isn't it.
BTW if you lived closer you would have been welcome to join us but might have made for interesting conversation with you and son (Everton supporter).
