Happy New Year with Sketch and Stash!

Yes, Happy New Year Everyone!!  Last day for me before going back to work proper, and so after taking down most of our decorations, apart from the tree, I decided to spend my last hours of freedom making a card, just because.  I just fancied doing something really pretty and for no reason (even though I have my daughter's 16th to make for next Monday! This won't be any good for her as she doesn't like any of the images without mouths!  I, however, love hAnglars and Magnolias so pulled this little lovely out of my stash to colour her up. 

 I followed the latest Sketch, no 52, over at Sketch and Stash, always a good one to get you using your goodies!  They've also got a DT call so gonna chance my arm!!  As I said the neglected stash is the image, and of course lots of new stash from Christmas, including the fantastic tulle from best matey Lesley, who bought me back a whole bundle from her travels in the US.  My papers are Pink Paisley, Sweetness, and, I think, Papermania.  I've also used some goodies that I won from another lovely lady, Dena, in her blog candy.  This includes the doily and some of the flowers.
Just Magnolia have just adjusted their entry criteria to include hAnglar images as well as Magnolia, and as their theme is Anything Goes, I'm entering there too.

I hope you all have a good day tomorrow as the routine kicks back in, school, work etc. Nick took Harry back to Uni yesterday, Em is back to school tomorrow and Holly and I are both back to work!  At least we still have Easter and the Royal Wedding coming up to give us all a few extra days off!!

Hi Julie

This is gorgeous.

Love your papers and you have coloured your image perfectly.

I must admit that I am like your daughter and prefer my images to have mouths (so I just draw one on LOL!!!).

I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and wish you a very happy 2011.

Love Jules xx
