Happy New Year

Happy New Year. Are you making any New Year Resolutions? I always hope to do more scrapbooking as I never seem to fit as much in as I would like. So this year I am doing less craft fairs and really hope to get more layouts made. I have done really well using up old paper pads and plan to continue that. I also intend to use all my new stamps and more of my old stamps rather than buying lots of new ones.

I still have lots of Christmas cards to share and hope to start on this year's soon as well. This is another of the cards featured in Making Cards magazine last month. I love these cute Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. This set is tobogganing together and includes the sentiment, penguin, deer, snowballs and trees. I didn't stamp the trees though, just used the die with the lovely Nitwit papers. The Lawn Fawn forest border has been much used since I bought it and I know will get a lot more use this year, I also used the MFT rolling hills die.

Simon Says anything goes
