Belated thank you's and Happy New Year!

hi all

first off - somewhat delayed  - but as some of you know I was working away,  on nights,  all over Christmas and was not due home until New year's eve.

Thanks to my lovely family - we still celebrated it as enthusiastically as ever and combined my coming home, Christmas and welcoming in the New year all in one!..

 so to all of them and all of you - though late it may be - I  wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year and best wishes for whatever 2014 brings.!

and so to my card..

A very simple thank you card - using to my mind, a  winter themed embossing folder - Northern Flurry - and as such I thought I could justly enter it into the current Less Is More challenge 'Winter Blues' where they want to see cards in shades of blue...

what do you think.?

Its just one layer of embossed, and stamped  whisper white card stock, sponged around the edges to add an additional bit of the all important blue colour, mounted on yet more blue coloured card stock.

I opted to colour the embossing folder with Pool Party using my sponge daubers before using it and then sponged toning Bermuda Bay here and there on top of the resulting embossed areas.

I chose the classy look of the Thank You stamp from the Perfectly Penned stamp set to complete the card.

It really was quick to do - and on this occasion I think less really is more!
Thank you Ladies for the inspiration and idea.

Things I used to make this card:

Stamp set: Perfectly Penned
Inks: Pool Party and Bermuda Bay
Cardstock /paper:  Pool Party, Whisper White
Other Essentials : Northern Flurry Embossing folder,  sponge daubers, Stampin' Up Trimmer

Well - its back to work for me tomorrow - but then all Mondays seem to come round far too fast for my liking, and given the choice - I would far rather be sat  in my little crafting space - blissfully playing with bits of cards stock, stamps and inks.. soon be the weekend - eh?

and if its your first day back too - hopefully it will fly past - which on reflection, was exactly what the whole of 2013 seemed to do and I was always told we should never wish time away...

ah well... til next time - have a lovely week and bye for now
