Happy New Year and first crafty post!!

Wishing anyone who reads this a very Happy New Year!!!!

I have a card to blog today that was actually made on Christmas Eve (I couldn't sleep as was feeling ill so came downstairs and made this at about 4 in the morning!!). As I only count something as being completed when it gets blogged this will be the first item in my 2011 count.

I made 99 layouts and 164 cards in 2010 so I'm setting myself a goal to beat that this year. I also need to spend less time surfing the internet (for that read playing games on Facebook LOL), more time crafting and more time on the Wii Fit. I have a wedding to go to in September and I'm desperate to be able to buy a gorgeous dress and look good in it instead of feeling self-conscious and like a beached whale! Wish me luck!!

Anyway, here's the card which was made for Neil. We both love purple so every card I make for him has purple in it. This one uses one of the Unity Itty Bitty stamps from Make The Day Special:

Materials used: Papermill card, Papermania paper, Ranger Distress inks, Unity Itty Bitty stamp, black Versafine ink.
Also used: ribbon, adhesive star.

Such a lovely card Jo - purple is my fav colour too. Gorgeous. You were certainly busy last year! That's going to be quite a challenge to beat! Good for you!!! And have fun on that wii :-)
