Happy New Year...

Good morning everyone
to you all and I hope 2013 brings Health, wealth and happiness to you and those you love, did you have fun last night...anyone go to any parties?...we did nothing at all in fact Phil was in bed way before midnight as he had to get up for work this morning so I saw the New Year in on my own which I didn't mind really as we don't normally celebrate it anyway...but then we are all just so grateful they have jobs there are so many out there still looking for one...2012 was a mixed year for us first there was our Daughters then Phil's redundancy, but luckily they found new jobs quite quickly...then it was losing the farmhouse in the South of Ireland but then Phil coming home and us finding this beautiful house we have now...so some bad things and some very good...I hope 2013 isn't so topsy turvy though and that the blessing of everyone being in pretty good health stays...right now onto my first card of the year...this stunner is one of the Simply Adorable digis from Sugar Nellie...my all time favourite range (p.s. theres news below of some new ones too)...this is the beautiful Rebecca...I coloured her very simply with distress inks and used a couple of scrap sheets of papers from pads I bought at Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a stamped sentiment from a Kaisercraft sentiment set and some thickers numbers for the date...its quite cas for me isn't it...not even a ribbon lol...I'm entering this for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge, Hotshot Craft blog challenge and the Lady Anne's challenge too...

right now onto our news from Sugar Nellie

theres a brand new release this week and they are the amazing Vintage Adorable's...you are going to fall in love with these cuties so hard I bet...of course there is a hop to celebrate the release, with prizes as always too...so keep the date in your diary's and make a date to join us on the Sugar Nellie blog on Saturday 5th January...I'm off to prep the dinner for tonight's get together not one of my favourite jobs but it needs done if we are to eat I guess lol, whatever your up to today I hope its a great one

Even your CAS cards are fabulous! This is no exception. I think your coloring is so beautiful you could use a piece of newspaper for the background & still have a gorgeous card! Happy New Year!! Sherri
