and my New Years Resolution is...

To be a BETTER Blogger!!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year to you all!
I hope it was a good one for you :D
Mine was spent sat in A&E, my little nephew popped a washing capsule straight into his eyes and although I washed and washed it out - his little eye did react so it needed to be checked - I am so glad to say he is ok :D and mortified of washing capsules now! lol

So its Friday! which means its Festive Friday on my blog :D
Don't be fooled into thinking I've made a Christmas card already ha - hell no! not this week anyway - but these are two I made for last year - OMGOSH - Last year lol - thats new! hehehe
I absolutely ADORE this image from The East Wind
Of course, Sandra's Bow card template had a good outing last year - especially with my Christmas makes :D 
I coloured her up with my specs and mounted her using 3d glue gel, the cardstock is the gorgeous A3 Snowy from Crafter's Companion - it did sell out so fast! The dies are from Crafter's Companion too - the doily is from the Downton Abbey range and the snowflakes from Sara's Festive Wonder range, the ivy is Die'sire.
I do just LOVE this image so much! I'm actually looking for excuses to colour her!

and I made my Syds one too :D
I think if I made a folder of fave images - this girlie would deffo go in it!
The dies again are from Crafter's Companions - the snowflakes are from Sara's Festive Wonder range, the branch is from the Kimono range, the little mittens are from Memory Box - I cut the ribbon away from the top, the papers are the gorgeous A3 Snowy Christmas ones again.

I think I might print her off for another colour up lol
