2009, Hope It's a Good One.

Happy New Year to everyone out there in blogland, may it be a Happy and Joyous one for you all.
Well its 1st January again, and I am guessing that many of you out there are waking this morning with a headache, not me this year, I stayed in alone, the two boys were in bed by 9pm, and Errol was offshore, it was actually really nice and peaceful, well that was until midnight when there was fireworks going off all around us, luckily the boys slept straight through until 9am this morning, although it would have been nice if they had slept longer as I didn't get to bed until 2.30am, I was crafting and blogging, I couldn't wait for the first Sugar Bowl challenge to be set, so at 12.30 I was on line and eager to get started, Tiets has set the first challenge and its a sketch, the rules are that you must use a Sugar Nellie image, which isn't that difficult for me as I have a huge stash of them, and am eagerly awaiting the next batch, I love Elisabeth Bells artwork and designs.

My aim for Januray is to use as much papers as I can out of my bit box, as it is an ever expanding one at the moment.

This is what I came up with at 1.00am this new years day,

For this card I have used one of the very first Sugar Nellie stanps I bought on a chance visit to the Home of Sugar in Elgin, its Neliie with Crochet hat and Scarf, the papers if i remember correctly are Papermania - Raspberry Champagne Collection, also purchased at Papercrafts in Elgin, have finished of with some cardstock, a few some gems and a matching bloom from my little stash.

Right then, we're having a quiet day in fromt of tele and computer, and I guess i'll manage to get some more cards done thisa afternoon, yippee.
