Hello Dear


May I just start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year 2017 - it's a big one for me this year as I will be 50 in April and I aim to celebrate it in style, with lots of events planned and a house move too !!

We have a new Challenge for you today as it's the first Sunday of the month over at Penny Black And More and it's an easy one 'Anything Goes' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Hello, Happy New Year. I was just at Susie's and saw your comment, so it was easy to zip over to say hello. I LOVE this sweet PB image (it's one I have too), and how splendidly you've showcased it on the card for Susan. Wonderful coloring and the design papers are just perfect with the stamped image. Love the extra touches of the lattice corners, and it makes the motif seem as though one has looked through a window to see the soft clouds in the background with this little couple. TFS & hope you had a great Christmas. Oh yes, 50 is a wonderful Life Milestone. So happy birthday early! My DD will be 50 this year too.
