Happy New Year

First off, I'd like to send Happy New Year wishes to anyone who visits my blog - I hope it's a healthy and happy year for us all.

We've still got visitors staying here so computer and crafting time has been rather curtailed - still it's been lovely to spend time with family over the last couple of weeks. The Northumberland contingent head home tomorrow - so please pray for good weather and a safe journey for them if you can spare a minute. Then it'll be back to what counts for normal around here at least till next weekend when we'll be welcoming more visitors. After that we'll probably see no-one at all for months and months!
Lynne set the challenge for the Daring Cardmakers this week and in keeping with the time of year she asked us to make cards to celebrate anything NEW, be it new year, a new baby, new job, new home - whatever we fancied.

Here's my New Home card
Lettering is cut using the Craft Robo, the little house is from the Cuttlebug Christmas die set.
I used SEI Doodly Doo papers and a mix of flowers both cut from the sei paper and others from my stash
I didn't think I was going to get anything done for this dare but managed to steal a few minutes over the last few days to make this one - I'm not exactly thrilled with it, but I do hate to miss one of our dares!
Hope to be back crafting and blogging properly soon

I have exactly the same kitchen aid and I have it for four years now and think I use it every day!
Couldn't live without it! I love the pictures of your studio, little bit untidy (like Mine) And this is why it is cosy and charming.
