Happy New Year Sweet Peeps xxx

Hi there peeps and a very Happy New Year to all. I wish everyone the best year with lots of happy crafting along the way xxx

Have you made any resolutions? I have but more in a sec ….

Firstly it’s time to pay our first visit of the year to Papertake Weekly and we have our usual

Anything Goes

theme this week with the optional extra to use a ‘new’ them, so new house, new baby, new beginnings, new year, new stash – you get the picture lol!!!

But it’s only an option so feel free to ignore it!!

We are sponsored by the lovely Lisa & Laila from Lili of The Valley and there’s a yummy voucher up for grabs so nip over and check it all out when you get a sec me darlins xx

And this is what I did.

I have to say that so far I have struggled to get back into the old crafting malarky following the hols  and hope I get back to normal PDQ cos it’s driving me up the flag pole quite honesty!!

I used one of the new Lili Of The Valley images – this is All Our Dreams – and it comes with it’s own sentiment …..

… awww, isn't that lovely :)

I coloured it with the following Copics -

E000, E00, E11, E21, B0000, B00, B05, B12, G99, YG0000, YG00, YG03

and all the papers are from NitwitsFBQ Bundle of Joy and Bundle of Joy Too

Not often that I do boy type stuff I know,  but I thought I’d do something different for a change!!!

Other stuff I used  is -

All from The Ribbon Girl and

And talking if SSS, here’s a little sneakie peekie or 3 of tomorrow’s cardage ….

.... mmm, I wonder if you can guess what image I used lol!!!!

OK back to the resolutions which I will TRY and keep but I’m not optimistic about some of them.

#1 - I am going to try and do a bit more blogging cos it has dropped off somewhat these last few months. Of course this is dependant upon work and other stuff but it’s on the list so I will be doing my best.

#2 - I am going to cook / bake more, Over the hols I did loads of it and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it.

#3 -  I am going to actually USE the sewing machine I bought not so long ago instead of leaving it sitting forlornly in the craft room

#4 - I am going to TRY and regain my fitness levels cos they are not great at the mo and I don't like it. So I rejoined the gym and I have actually been and had a game of tennis with his Lordship – I now have a sore wrist, grrrr (so note to dopy here that it is advisable to wear the wrist brace that is sitting in the cupboard).

Reading this as I am typing it, I can see a flaw in the master plan already, so resolution  #2 may have to be modified to cook more healthy stuff because if not, resolution #3 will have to be used for sure,  if only to let out my clothes!!!!

Rightly-oh I better go and do some work. Enjoy your day and I’ll see you tomoz.

Huggiest of new year hugs to all xxx
