A New Year Card

Hiya folks!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas with loads of yummy goodies? We had a quiet family weekend, with the kids playing their new Wii (they're still on it today!), so not much telly for me I'm sad to say (I hate games!)

I am turning my attentions now to the New Year (roll on Spring!) planning new things for the garden. Nothing exciting though - just going to try out growing more veg and fruit and less flowers. Can't do much other than planning right now - ground too frozen for the next couple of months, but I can go and clear out the stuff I don't want any more, and make some cold-frames etc.

Speaking of the New Year, I have put a little FREEBIE sentiment on the Delicious Doodles Blog page, so if you want it folks, head over and snag it!

This is a card I made using the said FREEBIE, coloured with graphite pencil, along with my Magherita image coloured with watercolour pencils. The background is a clock image I had from last year that I fiddled with and tinted out to make it look faded.

I made a black and white backing paper using some photoshop brushes and put that behind the Magherita image, along with some silver mirri, then added a bit of curling ribbon behind the sentiment for a wee bit of extra bling. Nice, quick and easy!

Hope you all have a great New Year folks, with all the health, wealth and happiness you could wish for!

Happy New Year Teri, this is a beautiful NY card and the clock in the background is stunning! Hopefully something like that might appear in your shop next year?! Its very TH-esque!!
Your plans for your fruit and veg really inspire me and I'm sure you'll get some free time what with them all being entertained on the Wii!! That was a good buy!!
