Last post for 2013

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well not long now in the UK before we celebrate the New Year!  I hope that what you wish for in 2014 comes true!  It has been an absolute pleasure showcasing my creations on my blog and seeing lots of my blogging and Facebook friends visit and leave lovely comments.

I look forward to continuing in the same fashion in 2014 and hope that I help to inspire you.  This is my last creation for 2013.  I have had my ups and downs but one of the highlights for me this year was getting to work with Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts.  With their support and encouragement I have been able to set up my challenge blog and pick the design team who are amazing. 

This year was also the year I met the lovely and talented Kath (Mucky Paws).  We have become firm friends since February and what a pleasure it has been to be able to spend days together crafting.  I also got to meet lots of my lovely Facebook and Blogging friends too at the NEC who came to say hello which was just fabulous!  So to each and everyone of you I can't thank you enough!  You know who you are!

Tonight's card is all about new beginnings and what better way to celebrate a new beginning is being joined together as man and wife.


1. 6 x 6 gold square card which I have matted and layered papers from LOTV Country Lady Papers.
2. The heart I have dusted over with Gold PanPastels.
3. I have then matted and layered green Core'dinations card for the topper.
4. To finish off I have added a bow with a tear drop, pearl gems and a sentiment.

Many thanks for visiting Today
Happy New Year
Hugs xxxxx
