Happy New Year!

Dear blog readers, thank you for joining me for a new year of crafting and sharing creativity at my blog.

Well it has indeed become a new year, although I suspect it will feel very similar to the end of last year for a few months at least. But I live in hope. I live in hope of hugs, social gatherings and travelling. But for now I am going to use my word of the year to keep me going … SMILE. Smiles can do so much… they are infectious and can clear away clouds. Magic! So even if we have to hide them behind masks, smiles will work for ourselves too and people can see smiles in our eyes… so I am going to keep smiling even when I think I don’t want to … and I suspect magic will happen and I will start to feel like smiling!

OK… so after that ramble… yesterday I played with new goodies and videoed it… link

I made the following card and wanted to share it on my blog too.

I used the new (released 5 Jan) In Bloom bundle … first the stamps for the background and then the Pierced Blooms dies for the additional focal images.

Love how it turned out.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
