Happy New Year .....

First of all I would like to wish all my followers and fellow bloggers a very happy & crafty new year, thank you all so very much for all your lovely comments during 2010, I really appreciate them and I hope you will continue to support me in 2011.
As per my previous post 'Mr & Mrs' well the wedding was brilliant, food was great and a good COLD day was had by all and my MIL and her new husband Steve are settling into married life together.
Today I have my 'Thank You' cards for all those fabby Christmas presents received, so I have made
a batch of this design.  My daughter received a wonderful (shop brought) Christmas card with a canopy over a Christmas window and instantly I knew I was going to use it for this stamp which was amongst my prize from Sugar Nellie.  Although it appears a simply design it has taken some time to produce a batch but I couldn't resist hand stitching which seems to be my bag just now!
Well I have used Rymans white card stock to stamp the image using Momento ink and Promarkers.  The buff card is also Rymans.  The canopy was cut using my daughters Christmas card as a template and I have used Pink Petticoats paper for this.  The sentiment has been computer generated, fnally the flower and branch are mini Papermani punches that I also won in the National Cardmaker of the year 2010.  To finish a little Papermania pink gem.  
Treated myself to some craft goodies with my Christmas money so off to have a play.  Easter stamps (organised or what) and a We R Memory Keepers So Easy tool so I don't have to measure and mark out my sewing anymore, watch this space!
Thanks for popping by, take care, Jane x
