Happy New Year ... already nearly the end of the 3rd of January. We have had family here for Christmas and New Year and this morning we said farewell to our daughter and her husband, on their way home to Perth. I got hubby to take a picture of us
I need to update my current photo and will get this one printed. Next time I see her, she will be a Mummy! I can't wait!
Our New Year's Eve was spend with our friend's at their place in Managawhai with my parents and our friend's twin grandchildren (Odin and Sophie aged almost 4) I had forgotten how energetic almost 4 year olds are! Worse was it started raining New Year's Eve and was steady all day. We left around 2pm to head home. It then rained most of the 2nd and again today - on and off. So what to do when it rains.... create cards! I got all my January ones done for A2Z Scrapbooking- one for Die Cut Divas and the one I needed to make for my NZ technique swap. I chose the theme - watercolouring with resist.
I used a Hero Arts Silhouette Poppy - stamped in Versamark and clear embossed. I then used my Zig Markers to colour the poppies. Once they dried, I used my iron to take off the embossing powder. This gives a smooth surface. I used a Hero Arts Hello die, together with a sentiment from another Hero Arts set.
This afternoon, we took my parents with us to see the 3D version of Star Wars - The force awakens.... totally worth it. I really enjoyed it.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year - full of crafting and creating.
