Happy times!

Hello everybody!  I hope you all had a fab Xmas and now looking forward to celebrating the new year in!  Personally, I am very tired from all the family visits, eating, drinking, talking - don't think I can keep it all up for another week!  We did spend a lovely quiet day in today, playing with all our new toys - new computer, new printer, XBox 360 and Kinect, and too much more!

Quiet time for me includes a spot of crafting so I've got my thank you cards done, based on this design...





I know it's more of a thanks giving image, but I love it so much (and we don't celebrate thanks giving in the UK!) that I decided to use it for "thank you for your hospitality".  It felt so good to get back to crafting today - expect more cards this week!




I am entering this card into the following challenges:




Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Marjolaine paper pack
Stamps: TGF Cheeky Cherry Pie, MFT Happy sentiments
Mediums: Copics, ProMarkers
Accents: BasicGrey buttons, Papermania pearls, American Crafts ribbon
Tools: EK Success border punch, Nestabilities label die (inside card)
