I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. As has been the case for a while here, it was really busy and I am still chasing my tail, which is why I haven't been around to any blogs for a while. I am planning to put that right tonight and tomorrow. The drama club's nativity went well. The children enjoyed it and the parents were pleased with what they saw, which is always nice. Then, my inlaws came over for a few days over Christmas. The girls were very excited on the day and seemed to like what they got. Then, it was hubby's birthday on the 29th, so we went over to my inlaws for a few days to see some friends and then they offered to babysit while we went to see Skyfall - which I enjoyed more than some of the recent Bond films. We had friends over for New Year and then we all went for a walk on the beach - the kids even paddled.
Daisy goes to school tomorrow and although I'll miss her, it will be quite nice to get back to a normal routine.
Over at Incy Wincy, our theme is to use something new. I have used Ruby, a stamp by one of our sponsors, Care2Stamp. The scallop dies and embossing folder were bought at the NEC in November, but I haven't had a chance to use them before, so they are my something new.
As I haven't had a chance to post this before, I thought I would do it now. The bottom card is my DT inspiration for CRAFT. Our theme is to make your own backing paper. I have used an image called Harley and Haley by Saturated Canary. The background paper was made with Victorian Velvet distress ink, stamped with a flower stamp I got free with a magazine.
