Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!  Had a lovely quiet night in with hubs and a chinese take away, thought we may as well as the 4 letter swear word starts next week!  Steve's only just up oyt of bed from having a terrible tummy bug and a nastychest infection, hence he's on the hard stuff tonight of Beechams and coke!  That's first for my hardy Scot!

We had a lovely quiet Christmas on our own and then they all descended on Boxing Day; 2 daughters, 2 fellas and 2 puppies!!  My Poppy spent most of it muzzled bless her, she doesn't take to 'new' dogs very quickly so I didn't want to take any chances.  She looked like Hannibal Lecter in her muzzle and she looked so very sorry for herself!  The daughters et al are presently near Padstow celebrating a special birthday and NY.

I'm always last with anything but it was worth the wait; easel cards!  I just LOVE them and before I get sworn at for posting a christmas card I just need to explain that I couldn't show it before as have had camera troubles.

Here is Mo's gorgeous little Holly Fairy, I made one each for my daughters.

Thank you for popping by and for all of the lovely comments you have left me since I began this journey last Spring.  I've had a really wonderful time blog hopping and been inspired by so many wonderfully talented ladies out there, please, keep up the excellent work!  I look forward to posting more cards this year and continuing my blog hopping to see what you have all been up to.

I need to offer a 'nod' toward Claire who first coloured this super fairy in a red dress!

Hi Keryn

Just gorgeous. The easel cards are lovely aren't they?

I bet your daughter's were well chuffed with them.

You New Year sounded lovely - with the exception of your hubby's germs!! Hope he managed to shake them off soon.

Thanks for not mentioning the 4 letter word!!

All the best for 2010

Love Jules xx
