Happy New Year everyone!

Good afternoon crafters!

A very happy New Year to you all !

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get this blog back up and running after a few months off. To be honest 2013 was a fairly turbulent year for us in the Hippy household; we had the untimely and unexpected death of a well-loved family member and then Mr Hippy decided that life needed to take him elsewhere and so he has moved on (I hope) to better things. I wish him all the luck in the world.

The very end of the year saw a huge improvement for me, however, as I met a new Mr Hippy! I won't say too much about him (as I'm sure you'll read more about our adventures as the year goes on) except that he is wonderful and beautiful; and (as you can see!) has the most gorgeous, green, soulful eyes. Here we are on a trip out during December:

I'm full of hope and expectation for 2014 and so I thought I'd start the year off with a celebratory card. I'm a bit rusty as I have not crafted in such a long time but I'm sure my creations will pick up slowly; so please bear with me!

Stampin' Up! Tag It, Bakers Twine,

The stamp set is called Tag It and Stampin' Up! donate £2 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Charity when you buy it. It is available to order on-line using the link at the top left hand side of this blog.

I used Stampin' Write markers to colour in the stamp set - Wild Wasabi, Calypso Coral, Soft Sueded, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder. The cardstock is Whisper White and Baked Brown Sugar and the stripes are from the Gorgeous Grunge set (also available on-line).

The Bakers Twine is in Early Espresso - Stampin' Up! offer it in five wonderful colours. Take a look in the on-line shop.

There will be lots of exciting nuggets of news in the coming weeks as we have both the Spring/Summer Catalogue and Sale-a-bration commencing on the 28th January. I can't wait!
Back tomorrow and wishing you all the best for 2014; cheers!!
