Happy New Year!!!!!!

First of all just to want to wish all of you in blogland a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011. And secondly apologies for being awol for a while, what with trying to get ready for St Andrews Night in November, a trip home for wedding preparations before that, then christmas I don't know where the time has gone.

2011 is a bit of a big year for us - our daughter, Sarah, is getting married in August and already the wedding preparations are in full swing. The early parts of 2011 will see me focussing on getting the wedding stationery done. So apologies first of all as until I get the wedding stationery finished, I think card making will have to be on an as and when required basis. The first batch of stationery - Save the Date - was taken home when we headed home for christmas along with the Thank You cards. Now it is working on the invitations.

It's nearly half way through January and I have only made one card - a birthday card for my favourite aunt. My inspiration came from a card I saw in Issue 63 of Papercraft Essentials and used a new technique to me, creating a flower from fabric or fabric paper - a wee tutorial. The card stock I used from 'The All Dressed Up' matstock by DCWV, the flower made from material that I bought a few years ago to do patchwork and quilting with, but never got round to it and a button from my stash.

Thanks for popping by.
