First craft of the New Year.





A wonderful Happy New Year to you. I am getting back to normal now ;0) All the Christmas decorations and DVDs are away again until December. It's going to be a busy week this week. My friends Mother passed last week and so I have the funeral to go to on Wednesday. This is the card I have made, I really need to get some sentiments with a good variety (have you seen anything you can suggest?). Although I have a nice verse inside the card. It is sad to loose friends. But I bare testimony that this life is not the end we carry on to live for all eternity and we will all be together with our families forever! There is also a baby due any day now for my cousin so that is a wonderful day to look forward to. And unusually they kept the sex secret so there will be a beautiful bundle with us soon. And if that wasn't enough it's our wedding anniversary on Thursday, so I will have to get busy lol.


This is the first time I have used this stamp (Maribel-Stampelglede) and I hope from the close up you can see the distress glitter. As well as new paper (Anna Griffin)I thought I would enter this for a challenge or two as it's the new year and challenges are always a good way to get back in to the swing of things when you have been enjoying quality time with family  & friends and have been away from crafting for a week or two. So I am entering this into SSS&S they want to see your new stamps. And Creative Inspirations would like to see anything new you have. I have been lucky this year I have a few new stamps from Crafty Individuals too and I hope to show you some of those soon. I hope you have all had a wonderful beginning to 2011 and that your blogs and crafty selves will continue to stop by and share your wonderful artiness with me. Love Dawn xx

This card is beautiful- congratulations on the wedding Anniversary, and the impending birth :), one of my favourite quotes is: Those who we keep in our hearts, live forever.

So sorry to hear about your friend's mom, Dawn. This card is stunning, I'm sure she will appreciate it. I know what you mean about finding good sympathy sentiment sets. Papertrey Ink has a lovely "With Sympathy" set, but I'm not sure what shipping/postage is like to the UK. Verve also has a sympathy set (don't have it, though), but again, it's that shipping that'll get ya. Sorry I can't be of more help!
