Competition Card and Year End Reflection

Well, here it is the end of another year.

I think I can say that the past year has been a very interesting and enjoyable one.

Graham and I found quality time for each other and we have vowed to do more (like weekend race meets, lunch and stuff), Mawgan dug deep and found her inner actress/scriptwriter and Anthony got a temp job as a maintenance technician.
Heather and I managed to organise 3 girly day get-togethers, window shopping galore..

Here's hoping 2015 is even more inspiring.

It is my dear cousin Cathy's birthday on the 6th Jan and when I saw the

 "Pic a Fav" over on Papertake Weekly

I found my inspiration.

The 11th March 2014 Bingo challenge, GEMS  DIECUTS  FLOWERS, was the one I chose

I'm quite proud of the shadow effect on the diecut flowers, I had planned on just putting the black version on the card. I then decided to do white and colour it in.
I have cheated a little by adding all items used next to the photo.

My wish for the next year is to have more family get-togethers, find Mawgan a some music/acting classes or clubs, keep Anthony focused on improving his future prospects, take Anne for a mother/daughter morning once a month and at least one Buffy&Graham weekend away.
I know that is quite a wish list, but there is nothing wrong with thinking big!

I wish you all a wonderful new year, full of joy and inspiration

Merry Christmas

Hello and a belated Merry Christmas to all.

I know I haven't posted much lately, but I am hoping to be more active in the new year.

What a wonderful Xmas we had. For the first time in a few years we had all of our kids here. I'm hoping we can make it an every other year thing.
Here they are playing Little Big Planet 3.

We have also started a new Christmas dinner tradition, Prawns in Bloody Mary Sauce

100ml Ketchup
2 tbsp Horseradish
3 tbsp Vodka
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4tsp Tabasco sauce

 So much nicer than the mayo rich sauce traditionally served in Britain. It also has a bit of bite.

I also have a fabulous husband, he bought me the most amazing presents.

This gorgeous necklace, which has my birth stone in the centre.

And the most spectacular leather purse

Isn't it the greatest colour and it smells lovely too (I know that may sound weird but hey). It has dozens of card slots and several zipped compartments. Brilliant!!

Back soon
