Happy New Year!

Well, I should have posted these cards yesterday, however Virgin broadband was being very temperamental (thank you Virgin for now having sorted out the problem).

I went to the Range recently, not to buy craft stuff, but it would have been rude not to have a look around & they had loads of stuff reduced, so when I stopped hyperventilating at all the loveliness, I narrowed it down to a couple of items.  I bought a set of clear stamps with penguins on and a paper pad of Fizzy moon which had four decoupage sheets and then some gorgeous papers (some of which are glittered - which fits in nicely with my love of all things shiny!).

So the other day when there was nothing of interest on the telly, I set about constructing the decoupage.  The first one I did as one decoupage, but then I decided that I could make better use of the sheets if I used layer one of the decoupage as a topper and then just constructed the rest, this gave me 7 complete toppers, I then cut out the front from the paper pack and gave myself another topper - not bad for £2.50!!

So far I have only turned 2 into cards, but I'm getting there, hope you like

The papers used were from the paper pack, the embossed circle with the snowflake is a cuttlebug embossing folder, the snowflake corner is a Memory box die, the tag is one of my new diesire dies from Crafters Companion, all the other dies were given to me as part of the Christmas card and present swap over on the DoCrafts website by Marilyn - thanks Marilyn!

Anyway, I have to be off to go and make my dearest darling daughter's birthday card.

Hope you are having a wonderful New Year & only upwards from here!
