Hi Lovely Bloggers....

Happy New Year!!!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and celebrated the New Year in style...  here's to a happy, crafty 2017!  

Sorry I've not been around in blogland since before the holidays - I decided to be brave and step away from my computer...  it took a bit of doing because I always want to see who's made what...  but I managed to stay away!  I think sometimes we do need that bit of time having a break from the usual - then we don't get tired and look at things afresh!

Now...  onto my card today.  It's new challenge time on the All Dressed Up Facebook page...  and our theme this time is..


Well.... my magical world is filled with fairies and glitter - so that's what I decided on!  I also wanted to go as far from Christmas images as I could - but still managed to use lots of red and green.  I chose the paper before I coloured the image.... getting good, aren't I?? hehe!  It's usually the opposite way around!

I stamped around the edge of the arch with a tiny stamp which gives the impression of a climber plant with flowers..  kinda like you're looking through a window at this magical woodland... yes???  Well it does in MY head! LOL!
