I'd just like to say a Happy New Year to all of my followers and friends - I know for some of you 2010 was not a good year, so i'm hoping 2011 will be better for you.
I spent New Year on my own with Whisper, as OH and son went up to Yorkshire to see family - i stayed behind so i could prepare for a certain little boy turning 4 tomorrow and to sort out his party which is next Sunday - you know the things wrapping up pass the parcel and sorting out goody bags - i don't do plastic rubbish, so instead each child instead has got a 'Snail and the Whale' (written by Julia Donaldson, she wrote 'The Gruffalo') activity books.
You may recognise this cute stamp from the stash i bought at the NEC in November, so when Clair said the Challenge over on Valentines Monthly Challenge for January was 'New Beginings' (where you have to use at least 1 Stampin Up product) - i knew exactly what stamp i wanted to use.
