HAPPY NEW YEAR

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a good New Year.

Its been such a long time since I was last here, what with a bad cold just before my holiday and then just getting back and gearing up for Christmas when the horrible thing struck again!
I am now feeling OK and just itching to start making cards again - hope I haven't forgotten how - its that long since I crafted!!

I made this card for a friends birthday in November, but didn't get the chance to share it with you. The stamped image is Crafty Individuals, (borrowed from my crafty friend Diane) the papers are Papermania.



I didn't colour the image, and although you can't tell from the photo, I did distress the image and edges with Antique Linen, to give a vintage look.

Checked out a couple of challenges and I can enter this (can't waste a card or an opportunity)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Fab & Funky - Anything Goes

It feels nice to be in blogland again and I'm off to do a 'catch up' and find out what everyone has been up to!

Take care, and thanks for looking

Avril
