Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everybody! I wish you all a new year full of peace, good health, fun and laughter.

Guess what one of my New Year's resolutions get back blogging!

I'm sorry for the lack of postings, life has been very busy and I kind of lost my mojo a bit. Anyway, I'm back now, so hope that I have a few of my followers left!! Thank you to all of you that hung in there for me despite my lack of postings. I know the blogging world is very fast paced and card makers are only as good as their next card, so thank you! You could have given up on me, but you haven't :o)

So what has been happening with you all? I haven't had much chance to check out other blogs so need to catch up on the latest. Can anyone recommend any challenge blogs to get me started? I do like my challenge blogs :o)

My little 'baby' turned 10 a few weeks ago, so I thought I would share the card I made for her with you. She absolutely adores Hello Kitty so it seemed only appropriate that I make her a card. This card was a challenge, not because it was difficult, but because I was making it over at my friend's house during half term holidays while Natasha was there. She must have walked into the room about 20 times while I was making it so trying to keep it a secret was interesting! I was constantly trying to hide the bits I was cutting out, plus the leftovers (she doesn't miss a trick!) and also trying to hide the cutters/papers :o) I had been telling her I was going to make a card and picked out a pad I thought she might like. As I flicked through the pad she said that one of them was nice. Which particular one I didn't know. Well, I couldn't really make a big deal of it, so I had to guess. And I guessed right, it was her favourite one! I love it when that happens, when you actually do something that shows you know a person. It doesn't happen very often lol

So what are all of your hopes and dreams for 2010? Have you set yourself New Year's resolutions around card-making? Mine was just to get on with it, make some and blog them, and I thought what better day to start than today!! I have been putting it off for too long now.

It's great to be back and I hope to catch up with you all soon. Ciao for now! :o)
