A New Year's Resolution!....... keep my blog updated!
Happy New Year - I hope that 2013 will be a great one!
Here are a few cards that I made over the last few months some before I went into Christmas card mode and one with some new stamps that I had chance to play with over the holiday.
I took my inspiration from the Make it Monday challenge review on Papertrey Ink to make a floating window - the acetate that the stamps comes in very handy for the window. The butterflies are from Heart 2 Heart # 10 and the inside is the sentiment from Half and Half set.

I have never made a Centre Step card before and when looking for something a bit different to make for my friend Penny's birthday I found a tutorial on the SCS site - here.   It was a lot of cutting, scoring and folding but I liked how it turned out.  Card stock, stamps [Sweet Life] and ink from Papertrey, the sentiment is from Flourishes and paper by Basic Grey.

Lastly my take on white on white for my friend Lynn's wedding to David using Papertrey's Beautiful Blooms ll # 3 and an embossed background.

One other little reason for neglecting the old blog was a lovely Mum and Daughter trip to Dubai and a real pick me up to spend time in the sun - here we are opposite the tallest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa although it is so very tall it didn't fit in the photo!

I was really thrilled with my birthday card :) It's gorgeous and the stamping perfect - so much so that my m-i-l actually thought it was printed!

The wedding card is lovely too, perfectly fresh.
