A New Year

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year break, I certainly did. However my poor cousin found herself in hospital for Christmas (mega hugs Sue) happily she is home and on the mend. This is going to be a good year and also a year filled with uncertainty, good because my son is getting married (really looking forward to this event) uncertain because the Diamond XOXO will need a bit of heart surgery at some point this year.
The nice thing about an extended break I happily found time to do a bit of crafting. My friend won a chipboard tree in the draw at the Bramford  Christmas crop. So I took it home to alter for her. I painted and crackled the trunk, then painted the tree and clear embossed a swirl and butterflies then painted over and rubbed to get a resit. I then added inks and metallic rub ins and stamped in black. The tree had the chipboard birds and hearts with it so I also altered these. I really enjoyed doing this and I will give it to back to my Friend this Saturday. I do hope she likes it as much as I did altering it.  Sadly SCD is closing for 2011 I shall really miss the weekly challenges, I will try and blog at least a couple of times a month. Hugs All XX.
