well it's almost time to say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017 so just wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks so much to all my lovely customers and colleagues who have supported my business in 2016.
it really is greatly appreciated. and although have not posted at all much in the last couple of months - have been wearing my other hat and have been welded to my sewing machine sewing up a storm to make a birth quilt for my latest great-niece - born at the beginning of December - so had a bit of a rush on my hands to ensure it was finished for Christmas.. but it was... scroll down to see what I got up to.
but just had time to make a New Year card and just now posting this as the clock ticks away - what are we going to do though without Big Ben to 'chime us in' ?
hopefully they have thought of something suitable !
so here it is - my last card for 2016 and am going to link it up with Inkspirational Challenge #125 where they have a truly wonderful festive photo to help get us creating..
All glitter and gold and stylish black, atop a base of shimmery white cardstock!..
