Cheers to a New Year!

It's already the last day of 2011. I can't believe how fast this year has passed. It feels like yesterday it was January. For a change since the last few weeks we have stunning weather here in Kalmar and it's almost a little chilly. The boys are out (both young and old) preparing lunch on the bbq. They got inspired by their nature walk earlier today. :) I have been home and just relaxed. It really has been a long week for us all.

I made the card when it was really grey and dull outside and I needed some sunshine. That's why I have made a yellow card. Can't belive I did that, not my fave colour but hey it's good to try something "new".



I have used an old paper pad from K & Company. The lovely Tilda is called Tilda with Daisy from the latest of the Magnolia collection called sweet crazy love. This one has to be my fave from all those stamps. Very sweet! I only added a few pearls and flowers from Panduro as decoration together with a ribbon and sentiment also from Magnolia. The sketch is from Paper Take Weekly where I wish to enter my card. I also want to enter it to the challenge over at PFP where the theme is celebration (another birthday card). I love Promarkers are having Anything goes as their theme so I enter my card there as well. My friend Pauline has new challnge blog up and running called Card Crafters Circle and this week it's anything goes theme there as well so be sure to drop by there as well.


And with all this written down I wish all of you lovely crafters everywhere and all other lovely people who drop by here every now and then a wonderful new year! May all your dreams come true!

Love n hugs
Marie
