Hi Vicky - a wonderful card to start the New Year! Sorry I've not been over your blog for ages - time is just running away from me.

Your cards, as always, are just gorgeous. The colours on your non-stamped are just wonderful. You give me inspiration to try something other than stamp and papers.

Hope you have a brilliant 2012 and thank you for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog, they are appreciated.
