Happy New Year!!

Well, it's here 2009...how time flies. Wishing all blog hoppers who happen to pass this way a very healthy, happy and crafty New Year! It was a quiet night for us, got the kiddies to bed,had a nice meal, followed by snacks, a bottle of bubbly and a large box of Thorntons choccies!!!
Amelia woke up with the noise of all the fireworks, so we had a nice sleepy little cuddle, wished each other a Happy New Year and settled her back into bed....but she was still up before 6am!!
Hmm...A very sleepy start to the the year!
No more waffle,, let show my first card for the year....the fabby charmed download Scruff number 1!!
I used some of my wonderful new K&Co papers (after I eventually decided which one to use first!) and got to work. I used Sketch # 19 from Sketch Saturday for inspiration and also decided to have my first attempt at inking my Cuttlebug Embossing folders as inspired by a challenge over on Paper Craft Planet.
I want to try out a few different techniques this year.....will be back later, hopefully with another card and a list of resolutions, both crafty and otherwise! Have you made yours?

Also had a quiet night in. My 3 little kiddies was tucked up in bed by 8, did a bit of blog hopping and then joined my DH on the couch with a bottle of wine and some snacks. We saw the new year in and then went off to bed. I was lucky my two year old didn't wake until 8 this morning. Hope you and your family have a fantastic 2009. Michele x
