January Blues

 Happy New Year everyone and I hope you have survived the first week of 2023!! With Christmas now behind us and the New Year under way it's lovely to be back here with a card to share.

The Cutie Pies Challenge is now a Just for Fun Challenge and we are kicking off with


I had an accidental Sale purchase back in December and added a lovely collection from Amanda Jayne Designs to my stash. I decided to colour up one of her wonderful images and use one of the pretty papers for my inspiration.

Sorry (not sorry) if you are fed up with Christmas cards!! This little cutie was coloured with Promarkers and I used a Clearly Besotted sentiment from Rockin'Robin set.

I am looking forward to catching up with you all after taking a bit of a blogging break for the festivities.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and don't forget to add us to your Challenge list!!

See you later in the week xx

Happy New Year my lovely blogging pal! Christmas came and went in a blur of planning two big events for my mummy and her twin who just turned 80, so as usual I'm behind with everything! But wanted to pop in before we are too far into the new year to wish you joy, health, love and abundance in 2023! Love sharing our crafty journeys together through our blogging. Will try to pop by more often this year. Hugs and Happy New Year wishes, Wends xoxo

Hi Sarah, I'm hanging my head in shame, I'm a terrible bloggy friend and also a terrible Sweet Stampin' Teamie! I've been very bad with my commenting so this is me popping by and saying thanks for joining in with us for the last challenge, hope to see you in this one!

Also as a bad bloggy friend, I promise to do better this year - I don't really know where the time goes and then it's been weeks since I either blogged or went round other peoples blogs - I will pop by more regularly this year!

Hope 2023 is starting well for you.
