Happy New Year!!

First off let me wish you all A very 
Happy and Healthy 2013
May you find peace and happiness follow you ...

I am late with this post ... I promise it is not going to be this way for the rest of 2013 ... Apart from being totally lost with the days ... There have been some family issues to deal with which I could not turn away from ... I am praying for wisdom and guidance so that these problems can be resolved ... 

Today of course starts the first challenge of the year for City Crafter .. and quite fittingly our creator Kirsty is hosting for us ... 
Kirsty is asking that we include a vintage boy and girl on our projects 


I don't usually work with these images so at first I was a little stumped ... but then I found a gorgeous image on the web that inspired me to create this card


The BG dottie paper is from from a lovely pad by MME Lauren sent me and I used some of my scraps and sewed them together with silver thread to compliment the blues and greys in the image


Prima flowers and a little clock together with some lace and pearls just complete the look I was going for ...


I am going to send this card to a blog friend overseas who sent me a beautiful Christmas card ... 

I hope you will hop on over to the City Crafter blog to check out the projects from the rest of the DT and be inspired to join us this week ... My dear sweet blog friend Jacira is our Guest Designer ... she has the most delicate and whimsical style that I just know you will love ... Please say "Hi" to her

All that's left for me to say is to wish you a beautiful New Years Day and to thank all of you who have followed me and taken the time to leave me such lovely inspiring comments throughout the year... I treasure your friendship ...

Till soon
