Bill Murray does plenty of soul searching and heads off across America to try and find his estranged son. Sharon Stone, Jessica Lange and Tilda Swinton appear as Murray’s former lovers in a touching comedy drama.

Hi there craft pals . Welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .

Hi there to new followers. Thank you for joining me and I do hope that you enjoy your visits

How wonderful cyber friends are ! My birthday yesterday and there were lots of family and friends who called in or shouted me a coffee and scones treat while phone calls  from our children were treasured . Huge number of birthday wishes from my cyber friends took my breath away .Thank you every one . You all made my day just that little more special .



Well I am so chuffed to be here as a DT for http://open-mindedcraftingfun.blogspot.com.au/
It has been quite a learning curve for me and a real challenge as I have had to learn some new ways of adding to files and photo albums .let's hope that I have the publishing time right and everything in the right place .

The 1st challenge for 2015 is
#27 and the theme is   New Year Resolutions/ new starts.

This is my first DT card for them .

                                My new year resolution is to make a greater  effort to write letters to friends and family .Cyber chats are fine but I know the excitement of opening that letterbox and finding a personal letter.

      Here I have a square white card base .     Black card for 1st layer ,  
 Dotty paper and bling  from my stash .
 I made the little envelopes as embellishments  , while the sentiment is old stamp , Lucys Stamps .
