Happy New Year and its My sister's Birthday !!!!

Well here we are in 2016 .... did you stay up to welcome in the New Year

I must be getting old could not keep my eyes open but 
was woken by fireworks in the Village.

Here I am writing this before our Village Boundary walk where 
"All" the villagers are invited to walk the boundary of the Village and 
depending on your level of fitness is can be a long as 
8 miles - but very few do that.

Back now I managed 3 miles, and the rest managed a lot more
6 miles !!!!!

There is always next year to do better. 

I will post photos later, maybe tomorrow.


and here is the card I made for her.

these are the inside words 

I used John Lockwood's New stamps to make this card

stamped and embossed in various colours onto a "hint of Gold" card stock

Used Cosmic Shimmer watercolours to colour in the flowers.

Added a bow and gems.

I do hope she will like it :)
