Happy 2012 and 1st card for New Year

Hello my friends,

It seems like yonks since I posted on here and IT IS!!  I don't know what happened with time for me around Xmas tho my Mam was down and I feel I have to spend time with her and ignore my constant mad desire to craft while she is here - she knows how keen I am on making my cards but I do feel I have to give her the time she deserves.

A new challenges........a new grandchild due at the end of April............son passed his Sgt's exam and moving to Traffic Division soon...............what more could I ask for apart from good health throughout 2012.

I have a DT card coming tomorrow for you for Jenni's Cardmadfairy's Digi Days so do come back to see my card for that one......'s one is for Mam for her Birthday on 13th.  Wish I could go up and spend it with her but the weather is SO dodgy at the moment - our plum tree is no more - lying at 45degrees this am so will have to get it down properly when Graham comes in later.  Hope its not been too rough for you wherever you are...I recently won a complete set of Red Gingham Designs Clear Stamps from Little Claire and they are such fun to colour - more to come I am sure once I get my mojo back properly.  This one is called Swirly Whirlies - Owls and is adorable.  I coloured them with my PMs and matted them onto different coloured coordinations card and added DPs from my stash.  The sentiment  is CGd.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~
The Paper Shelter Anything Goes and
Sweet Sketch Wednesday (great sketch girls!).
