Anything Goes!!



Happy New Year everyone:0)
 I hope 2018 will be a good one for you and that it has started well.

It's the first 2018 challenge at


and we are kicking off the year with Anything Goes.

I still had my Christmas stash on the floor  desk so decided to get ahead and make some cards for next Christmas. 



The little elf stamp was from a Christmas present to myself that I had ummed and aaaahed about for some time, but finally convinced myself that I needed!! The paper is from a Lawn Fawn paper pad that I bought some time ago and couldn't bring myself to use!!

I hope you will join us!!

Before I go I must share picture of our Granddaughter, Mollie Rose, in one of her Christmas outfits...


...cute huh?!!!

See you soon xx

Hi Sarah,
Happy New Year.
Your card is so brilliantly created.
I love the elf image who could resist that.
The paper used is excellent and goes so well with the image too.
One of my blog friend had an excellent New Years resolution to buy more craft stuff.
Now thats one that can't be broken by us craty peeps can it.
Molly Rose is sooooooooooooo! gorgeous and I can definitely see the family resemblance.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Oh, good heavens, Sarah, Mollie Rose has stolen the show!!! What a beautiful girl in her cute outfit!! I do love your card, even if I had to tear my eyes off the lass to go back up and look at it again, lol! I'm very proud of you for buying yourself that adorable elf and for using that beautiful plaid instead of hoarding it!! It's perfect as a background with the scalloped edging around. And I love how the curve of the elf's cap is perfect for a circle ~ awesome design!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell

This card is just about as cute & sweet as Mollie Rose (but not quite!) How adorable she is, in her Christmas outfit. She looks ready to enjoy her 1st Christmas. Love this image, the swirly tree is just spectacular & I think you made a smart decision to buy the elf! He's adorable too, and will brighten up your Christmas cards for many a year. Love, Love that wonderfully colored plaid background. Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family too. Always much more fun when you have a little one to enjoy the magic with. TFS & Hugs
