2014 Crafting Begins

Hi Crafty Friends

I have had a lovely hour in my craft room and made this cute card.  I love the bright colors and they really cheered me up on  this wet and windy afternoon.

I have not been happy with my photos on here so I decided to try adding some color to my background rather than white.  I really like the way this photo came out and I think I will try and stick to my plan and brighten the backgrounds up to really show off the card.

The Penny Black stamps are so cute and great to color in with my Spectrum Noir pens.
I made the card for my Auntie who will be 81.  She loves bright colorful things and she is young at heart so I am sure this will bring a smile to her face.

Hope you like my new look for 2014.
