Happy New Year! It's certainly a very snowy start to 2010 here in Norfolk because we have had a covering of snow overnight. I can hardly believe 10 years ago we were celebrating the Millenium and I was pregnant with my daughter Chloe so it was a very exciting time. However, that must mean my little girl is going to be 10 this year ~ where has the time gone?
Hope you all had a lovely New Year's Eve whether you were out partying or, like me, seeing the New Year in at home. Luckily this year I did manage to stay awake to see the New Year in because I have been known to fall asleep on the sofa lol!
It's the first Friday of the month again so that means a new challenge has been set at the Crafty Calendar Challenge. This month the challenge is 'Keeping Warm' and the optional extra is 'Texture'. This can be shown by the colours, image or texture and for my card I decided to show warmth through the papers and colours. I have included texture with the swiss dots embossing folder, flowers and ribbon.
