New Beginnings

First of all I would like to welcome my new followers and hope you all had a good Christmas.Matthew had a phone call Cristmas Eve from Barclays bank to say Ellie,our grandaughter 6yrs had won a colouring competetion there,she is really good for her age and a one I can rely on for a truthful comment on my cards.The last but one card I blogged she looked at it and said mmm I like the colour(her fave)but you went over the lines a bit on the shoes!!!She also spent Christmas Day and boxing day ill with stomach virus going around O/H also had it both days too.He also had another fall Saturday night in the bathroom and rehurt his already fractured ribs and his good knee(ostoearthritis in the other one)so is still housebound!So am hopeful for new beginnings.Matthew has his own tattoo studio Karma Inks(he has a page on FB)he has only been opened two years in February but has already had work shown in magazines and websites in America,and has been offered a guest spot for the day-tattooing in a studio in Manchester,so doing really well,really proud of what he has achieved to get himself off the dole-think the girls take after him with their drawings and colouring.Right onto my card which has taken me two days to do I have six DT cards to do and mojo is still on a break-thought I was actually going to get ahead but no.The image is from Samistamp "Bundle of Dreams"coloured with promarkers,papers are New Arrivals rom Forever yours,ribbon,lace,pearls,dewdrops and twine from stash and added a couple of dies.
