Happy New Year!!

Hello folks and Happy New Year to you all!

I hope 2016 is a good one for you.
I am staying with my sister at over the new year holiday and we have just cracked open the Bailey's! Let's hope we can stay awake long enough to see in 2016!
I am showing a couple of cards I made for the last show Barbara did on Hochanda (don't forget the next one is on Sunday and also there is a one day special starting at 8.00pm and for several hours on Monday - my recorder is all set up!)
For these cards, I used the lovely ThankYou framer set and added a couple of trees from the Wee Trees set  You can never have too many tree stamps in my opinion!

For the first card, I did a watercolour background with oranges and pinks, then splattered a bit of pink over it and let it dry.
Once dry, I used a green ink pad to do most of the stamping - the swirls round the edge and the butterflies in the background.
Then added the ThankYou framer and the butterfly inside the O in a dark green archival ink
I glittered that one butterfly.

For my second one, I stamped the Thank you framer in place first, then masked round the O and did my little scene inside in colour, then continued the line of trees outside the O in black and added a couple of the delightful little birds.

Thank you all very much for visiting my little blog and I hope we will meet up again in 2016.
I'm off for another glass of Bailey's (just a small one!) so I'll leave you and wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Have fun!
