First blog of this year...Me to You

Hi there, finding it unbelievable that I have not posted since November, where does the time go I ask?  I have had a wee bit of free time and make a few lovely cards, however, they seem to be made and away just as quick.  I have taken a few pics so will make time at the weekend to upload them, they are not great, as I am not the most experienced, comparing to such wonderful creations I see on other blogs, but I enjoy it, and hopefully the recipients do as well.  A friend turned 40 recently and I made a nice card for her, using a free stamp on the reverse of the card (free with a magazine).  It was Humphrey's Corner stamps, but a wee stamp, set out in a circular fashion says "handmade just for you" and I had put that on the back of the card.  She smiled today and thanked me for the card, I felt quite pleased she liked it.  I said I hadn't put 40 on it as unsure how she felt about it, the penny dropped then, she saying she had noticed the handmade just for you stamp on the reverse of the card and when I mentioned omitting the 40 age,she smiled and asked if I had made the card, she seems really chuffed.  Debbie works in my favourite cafe which I sometimes haunt on a Satuday and she is such a great lady, on the ball constantly, and still finds time to smile and chat to the customers too.  Like the chance of a chill out Saturday,go to the coffee shop in the morning and then head to Craft World aferwards, perfect!
I hope I haven't gone on too much.  I hope everyone is well and survived the festive season, at least it wasn't so cold last year, but weather looking unpredicable for the rest of the week!

I would like to enter into a few challenges this week.

I love the colours of this pack, and worth every penny as the kit has borders, toppers, papers, sentiments and decoupage, it has everything and loads of possibiliies.  I used Glamour Dust glitter on the brolly, picks it up lovely, but not so clear on the photograph.
I am entering this card into the following blogs:

Truly Madly Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
