New Year Cards

Happy Sunday All

I have seen a number of blogging friends who are talking about new year resolutions and not buying any more craft materials for 6 months unless they are staple basics that are needed. Now I don't think I will be able to make that sort of resolution but there are a couple of things I would like to try and do.

1. Is make more family scrapbook pages for a couple of albums that I have got on the go, 
and need to do more to. 
These will need to be 12 x 12 and will therefore use up some of my supplies that I have got lots of!!!!

2. Is use even more of my endless boxes of supplies and make some quick cards.

So with this in mind I decided to make a start whilst I was sitting in my craft room New Years Day evening. Here are some quick(ish) cards, they have been completed over the past week when I have been able to catch a bit of time in the evenings.

 Whilst I was collecting paper pads and images together I thought that I would make 2 of the same design, that way using even more of my bits and not taking that much longer. You know with me it is always the thinking and designing time that I spend hours on.

What did I decide to make?  Happy New Year cards!! Only because I found the images in a box and they looked so appealing.

These next two are not the same design.

No stamping, just images from a pack and collage backgrounds. But I soooooo loved making them all for a change. There is ink and acrylic paint on them, buttons, gems, corners and torn paper.

Very simple designs, but I am happy with them.

Hope you like them too.
