The beginning of a New Year.   HAPPY NEW YEAR to all .

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
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 .

This is adorable! I love your colouring! I fully agree with you that it is really nice to get a letter by snail mail. Unfortunately that happens quite rarely nowadays. Your resolution is great!

Hanne, DT sis.
