'In with the New' at Try it on Tuesdays

A very belated Happy New Year to you,  I hope you all enjoyed the festivities of the last couple of weeks.
Unfortunately, I woke up on Christmas morning with a very unwanted cold and spent most of the time feeling very sorry for myself, and I'm still struggling to get back to 'normal'.
Fortunately, my Christmas present to me arrived before Christmas and I couldn't wait to play with the Graphic45 Couture papers and a set of stamps- and, as I needed something 'New' for our challenge at Try it on Tuesday this week, it was the perfect excuse!
The rest of the team have lots of 'New' to show, from 'new techniques to 'new' crafting goodies, so please pop over to the main blog and check them out.
I'm hoping to start catching up with everyone in the next couple of days, but would just like to say it's lovely to see new followers who have joined in the last couple of weeks - I really appreciate all your support on my creative journey.

I am entering this at:
  Allsorts - Free and Easy
  Sugar Creek Hollow - Something New
  A Creative Romance - Something New
  Crafty Boots - Anything Goes

Take care and stay well,

Avril xx

Snap! We both had colds for Christmas too. I like your graphics 45 card. Colours are perfect together. I love their papers but find them very expensive to buy. My present came before Christmas as well. A Grand Calibur. The handle flew off my Bigshot (which was second hand from Ebay) and couldn't be fixed. I got good use out of it though so can't complain. Hugs Mrs A.

I'm sorry to hear that you were ill during Christmas, but glad you got to play with new stuff. The Tim Holtz toy soldier die that I used for my Royal Guard was my Christmas gift to myself. Have a blessed week!
