Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! We had a great day, lovely dinner with family and the boys were delighted with their gifts. Then since boxing Day I've had a rotten cold - at least I didn't have to worry about going to work. bit better today so hope that I can see the New Year in sniffle free.  Thought I would share with you the last Christmas card I made. I had planned to make lots using this set but due to a wee mix up with Create and Craft they arrived far too late. Maybe next year! Anyway these are from Clarity Stamps and I was really pleased with the end result

Today I managed to make my last journal page for the He-art Journalling project with the Greeting Farm. Now I need to bind all the pages together. This week had to be a page about yourself.  I used one of my favourite Simply Sassy stamps and lots of shades of greens (my favourite colour).  Had to add a wee bit of sparkle too of course.
The background was made using Distress Inks and the image is coloured with Flexmarkers and Promarkers. Even the journalling is Emerald Promarker using a fine nib.
Here's a closer look at the image

My hubby bought me the whole range of Flexmarkers for Christmas and even built me a box to store them. It is the smaller of the two boxes, the other houses my Promarkers and yes, he made that too!
I would like to enter my journal page into the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
I Love Promarkers - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

In case I don't manage to blog again until January may I wish you all a Happy New Year.
thanks for visiting
