  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. Well I'm back after a week away with my family at our beach house whilst they were in New Zealand from overseas. The weather couldn't be worse it rained the whole time we were there we got cabin fever and as soon as we packed up to come home the sun started to shine!!! Congratulations to last weeks winners I'm sorry I didn't get to comment on your blogs as there were so many lovely cards. Welcome to Heide our new design team member I do hope you'll enjoy your new position with us. Thanks Krista for sponsoring us this week I just adore your images especially the Bride I used. Arlana thanks for a wonderful sketch I love this one. Linda thank you for doing the post this week looks great and I love your challenge. Wishing everyone a wonderful week crafting and I hope to comment on some of your cards as we are off to the beach again on Friday for about 10 days as it's our summer holidays here in New Zealand and the boys are off school for 6 weeks and 2 weeks have already gone.
    Hugs
