Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. For some it has already arrived for others we are still waiting for it. Whichever you are I wish you all health, happiness and many wonderful new experiences in 2009.

We are having a very quiet family evening at home. Tomorrow we will celelebrate the #1 son's 27th birthday, so you know where I spent my New Year's Eve 26 years ago. Missed out on my girlfriend's anniversary party and all the yummy food and celebrating and then he diddn't make an appearance until 7:29 in the pm. of New Years day. Oh well I have forgiven him and will make his choice of dinner for his Birthday (this year it is Prime Rib with all the trimmings).

Made for a Friend

Just trying to play catch up here so I thought I would share the last card I made. I have a friend who celebrates Chanukah rather than Christmas so I always try to make a special card to celebrate her beliefs. This was the card I created for her this year. Other than this card I haven't been creative at all so no other art to post.

A Friend Needs Your Help

Hope you all have had a wonderful holiday whatever you celebrate.

I thought I would try my bit to make the holiday a little brighter for an online friend who needs our help in finding her missing daughter. Tina's daughter went missing on Christmas day one year ago (you can view details at Tina's blog link above). With the help of her online friends and visitors maybe we can all play a part in bringing Tina's loved one home to her family. Many thanks to all my visitors for their help in this and mayb you enjoy Health and Happiness in 2009.

A New Award

My friend Edna was so nice and sent me this award a week or so ago and I have just been so swamped I couldn't deal with it then. So now I'm trying to catch up and this is how it goes.
"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY -nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
I always find it hard to list bloggers because there are so many wonderful people out there in blog land. So I will start the list for now with the following blogs.
Gayle of Stampers Touch - who is just a wonderful lady with incredible art.
Dianne - Passion for Stamping - who has been my friend for a few years now
Jodi - Artfromthehart - who has some incredible coaster ornaments and lots of other wonderful art
Elizabeth - The last Door Down The Hall - She not only shares her wonderful art but provides you with recipies and gives you free images to use in your art.
Lynn at A Dreams Eye View - who has been a lovely online friend and has wonderful art pieces to see on her blog.

Some Christmas Art

This card was done for the colour challenge on one of my Yahoo groups. The colours we had to use were white and light blue. I'm pleased with how this one turned out.
This card was done just for my dear mother. It is all glittery but the scan doesn't show it off very well. I'm sure she will be pleased when she receives it.
This is the inside of the card for my mother. I thought the verse was so nice, maybe not your usual Christmas verse but I like it.

This is the design that I did the bulk of my cards for giving to family and family friends. I used my Cuttlebug folders and then highlighted with Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Crystal topping off the tree with a bow.
This one was done for the Card Lottery on one of my groups. The theme was anything Christmas or winter.

It's been Awhile & Something to Share

It seems ages since I've posted anything here. Time just keeps trucking on by and I get caught up in all the things to do at this time of the year. I have most of my Christmas cards done and out in the mail, just a few left to do for the stamping friends. Which brings me to the Share part of this post, Lisa over at Ten Two Studio is having her holiday countdown once again so you might want to pop on over and collect some of these wonderful images that might be suitable for one of your holiday projects. Don't forget you'll have to post her countdown giveaway to your group, your blog or web page to share it around. Have a great day all.
