Happy 2016 Crafty Friends.
As this is my first post of the New Year I wanted to send you all the warmest of wishes for the year ahead. May your craft rooms be overflowing, your brain full of ideas and never without inspiration and your heart loving every minute of crafty time (which is a little lacking in this house so I truly do love every minute I get to do anything crafty).
I've had a fun filled and busy festive season. New Year's Day was my birthday which was spent in good company with good (Slimming World) food. As fellow crafters will understand a birthday brings lots of lovely handmade cards and gifts. I was blessed to receive lots of lovely gifts from so many friends that I have made through my years with Stampin' Up!
I wanted to share a card I received with a little sneak peek product from the new Spring Summer catalogue. This card was sent to me by my lovely downline Sandy. She has been with me almost as long as I have been with Stampin' Up!
This card was created using the new Balloon Builders stamp set and a fabulous new punch called the Balloon Bouquet punch.
The sentiment is from the Ronald McDonald charity stamp set Sprinkles of Life and is punched using the Large Oval and Mounted on to an Elegant Eggplant Scallop Circle.
The new Spring Summer Catalogue, along with all the fabulous freebies in the Sale-A-Bration mini catalogue, launch TOMORROW!!! So please pop back tomorrow to find out more about all the lovely newness!!
Here is a display of some of the lovely birthday cards I received. I can't bring myself to take them down just yet. Maybe I'll keep them on display till the next family birthday in March.
And as for the big day, we spent the morning riding the local steam train. Summer loved the smoke and sticking her head out of the window watching the engine.
And Sylvie loved the playground!!
