Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We were pretty busy getting ready with putting up the tree and carrying in all the boxes from the garage. I had shopping to do and 2 swaps to finish. We took our two granddaughters out for dinner and a movie and had a wonderful time with them. I joined an alphabet swap where you do 27 6x6 pages of one letter, one page goes to the hostess. Of course I chose to do 2 letters, so that added up to 54 pages. I'll get the whole alphabet back and will be able to put it all together in an album to make an Alphabet Book, or in my case 2 books. I'll post the two pages I did later. I also had a trading card swap to finish and get mailed. After finishing all that I was able to try out my new sewing machine that my husband gave me for Christmas. I made my goose a new outfit and a dust cover for the sewing machine........I want to thank everyone who reads my blog and takes the time to leave an occasional comment. So todays post is a Thank You Card for all of you. I made this one today just for you. The poinsettia (TAC) was stamped using Very Vanilla craft ink on Real Red cs (SU) and then embossed with Irridescent Ice EP. I added some yellow beads to the center and colored the rest with glitter pens. I used the Designer Label Punch (SU) for the sentiment and attached it with Off White Orgundy ribbon. Thanks for looking. Happy New Year to you all.
