MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

I've been a bad blogger....

this week things just seemed to get in the way... all the best laid plans and all that!! Sometimes I feel like I am on a great big merrygoround that just gets faster and faster and I can't jump So much to do and so little time to do it in. Although I get excited about Christmas it seems that there is so much to do and think about that everything else takes second place... no wonder that after Christmas Day I want to be a couch potato for a month... ok nothing new there I did finally manage to get some Christmas cards made and posted (wouldn't be forgiven for sending some people bought ones IYKWIM) every year I say I will start making them early but I just never seem to manage it ;-)
This one was made using Crafty Individuals papers and flourish stamp, along with word stamps from my SeeD's collection.
I enjoyed doing some embossing for the first time in an age and I had forgotten how much I love seeing the embossing powders melt... the first time I tried it I was so impressed I think I embossed on every card I made for a
I HAVE to use 3d sticky pads somewhere on almost all of my cards 'cos flat just doesn't do it for me so my little angel got the treatment as well as the wording and flourish :D
A bit of velvet ribbon for a luxurious feel and Bob's your uncle... all done and dusted.
Hope you all have a fab weekend and I'm off to catch up with you all now :D

I absolutely love this art piece Chris...and I do so love heat embossing also. This is gorgeous and the colors are awesome.
BTW, it gave me a chance to try your 'followers' group again and this time it worked. Must have been an ISP problem previously.
