Happy New Year

Hi there you all .
Welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in .Hope you take a minute to say hi .
The first thing I must do is to thank all who emailed, blogged or went on FB to wish me a Happy Birthday .
You bloggers really are a wonderful bunch of people .
Thankfully  it certainly was a bit cooler today in Adelaide and just as well because Doug and I must be getting old . The 40 degree heat really knocked us about a bit .
To share tonight   I have  a card I  made  instead of a late Christmas card .

This has a white card base , some floral paper , a premade topnote diecut both from my stash
The book is from Chocolate Chip SU and image from SU set , Morning Cup .
The  now open book is a diecut .

And for the inside I used the next size up in the diecut .

So why the cups instead of wine glasses or beer mugs ...because Doug and I dont drink either but do love to share a coffee ....lots of coffee as our friends and family know .
This may be entered into .. 
Any way that's it for tonight
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-anne


  1. Oh blast, did I miss your birthday? Hope it was a happy day for you. The little book you made for the front of your card looks great and I can see the reason for the coffee cups, lol

  2. Hey! I love to share a cup of coffee too - in fact I am having one now as I visit your blog. Became a follower and a subscriber so I know I will be back. Really neat idea for your New Year's card! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment Shirley-anne!!

  3. Shirley the shape of the book is so gorgeous and Wish you a Happy and Creative New Year

  4. I didnt know it was your Birthday Shirley-anne, I hope you had a lovely day, I love this card, my wife and I dont drink and we both love a cuppa, I like the idea of the open card inside.

  13. LOVE this card. I so badly wanted to make something very different for the New Year, and just could not get that mojo going. You totally pulled off a wonderful non-traditional New Year card. LOVE LOVE it. I wish you and the hubby all the best in the New Year..Happy Belated Birthday:) Hugs!

  14. Lots of beautiful cards here:)
    Thanks for sharing!
    *Hugs, Inger*

  15. How unusual is this card, Shirley-Anne. Very clever and I love it. So different and creative.
    I have just posted a card with the digi images I had won in May 2011 from Delicious Doodles in MIM. If you have a minute, do check it out...
    It saved me so... had to do a card with a cricket theme and did not have anything related so this image was a saviour.

    Thanks for asking after me... We are fine and trying to settle back in after our trip to New Delhi.



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate it and enjoy reading each one .
hugs Shirley-Anne
