On a personal note, I aim to not let things that I have no control over get me down this year and to concentrate on all the good things that I have in my life, not the the negatives. If it looks as if I'm starting to go down hill, you have my permission to tell me off!
As a family we had wonderful cause for celebration over the festive season when my sister got engaged to her lovely boyfriend Phil on Christmas Eve! As we were all going to be spending New Years Eve together I obviously had to have a Congratulations card to give to the happy couple.
Apologies for the darkness of the photo, I will be so glad to have those long, sunny evenings back! I've had this adorable Penny Black stamp since April's Ally Pally show so it was about time that it was introduced to an ink pad. I remember being very lucky to get this at half price! It's been coloured with copics before being cut out and mounted onto Real Red CS cardstock. The base panel was embossed with the Love Language CB folder. Unfortunately I realised only after I'd stuck the ribbon down that it was the wrong way so the hearts are sideways! I've had these heart ribbon sliders for so long and I only remember them when it's too late, but I was prepared this time. The sentiment is a CWC oval. The heart has been covered with Glossy Accents that you can just see with the shine on the top half.
I am entering this card into this months Penny Black at Allsorts challenge which is All You Need is Love
I don't want to list my personal goals that I am trying to set myself this year craft wise as I have done that in past years and have not managed to fulfill them. However, I do know what that I are and will do what I can to achieve them.
Thank you for continuing to stop by and support me, even with the lack of response in return. I do really appreciate each and every one of your comments.
