Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to all my lovely blogging friends!

Hope you had a fabulous night if you were out revelling...  and if you spent a quiet one like Barry and I, I hope you raised your glasses at midnight!  Here's to a wonderfully happy, healthy 2013!  I would love to hear some of your New Year resolutions and whether you've kept them or not!!

Now down to the reason I'm here.... it's time again for another Anything Goes challenge... this time the theme is 'JUST GOOD FRIENDS'...  and what could be better for that theme than one of the gorgeous LOTV images...  I chose 'Coffee Break' - and really enjoyed colouring these two little ladies with my copics and promarkers.  I love to share a coffee and a natter with good friends.... but I would definitely not be the one with the big hat!! LOL!

I used MME Blush DP... using both sides (the gingham is the reverse), and mounted onto Bazzill.  I cut the image with a nestie square, did a little computer generated sentiment, added a Memory Box Corner Bow die, and some flat backed gems... and it was done.

Don't forget to pop over the the challenge blog HERE to see what my gorgeous teamies have come up with to give you inspiration... and then maybe over to the Craft Den to see what goodies Lynne has on offer in her sale!

Take care all and again.... Happy 2013!!

Big hugs
