Happy New Year ...

I'm not sure where the last two weeks of 2016 disappeared to but it seems a long time ago ... Happy New Year to you all ... I hope 2017 brings you much joy and happiness.

Now the holiday is coming to a close life is quickly returning to normal ... washing and ironing, cooking and cleaning, need I go on?!  Most important of all back to time for crafting. I'm determined to find 'me time' this year to do the things I love ... this is just one of my many New Year resolutions ... I'll let you know as the year progresses whether I manage to keep any of them!

So to start the year here is my first card:

I used:
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection - Mini Bouquet
Distress Inks - Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin
Versafine Onyx Black

I'm entering the following challenges:
