Happy New Year!!

Hello there and a very Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, we certainly had a lovely time here, but things are pretty much back to normal now, the trees have been taken down and everyone is back to work as usual.

This year I joined in with the Waltzingmouse Christmas card exchange which was organised on the forum. I received the most beautiful card from Teresa all the way from the USA and she very kindly sent me some beautiful seam binding too.

Here is the lovely card I received;

It's so festive with the gorgeous seam binding and lace and those little pine cones are just so sweet!

Thank you so much Teresa!

The card I made was sent to the USA too;

Thanks for visiting!
