A very late "Happy New Year"

Happy New Year to all you lovely Crafter's out there!!!!!
I'm hoping this year will be full of crafting as last year was very quiet for me here on my poor little blog which has been so neglected.
I did set off with such good intentions but after making loads of card designs and colouring loads of images I was so stressed when I realised I had no cards to attach them too!!!!!!!!!!! So in the end I had eight cards four of which where an order!!!!!!! so bad 
On the plus side great for next year!!
Well on to my card it was for my Mum and Dad and my favourite House Mouse Christmas image which as always is coloured with my Pro Markers.
The challenge over at House Mouse was Gold or Silver and was a month long challenge over Christmas and I'm just in time before it closes. 
I love the colour of the poinsettia looked so lush in the flesh and perfect with the added glamour dust.
Think this would have looked better on a white sheet of paper to take the picture but too late now.
Love the papers but not sure what they are as from my large paper stash.
Added the little bells to the flowers which where a must have as I made a mess with some alphabet stamps and they needed covering.
Added lush gold and red ribbon with added star trim which is so perfect.
To finish the design I used my Doo Hickey Magnolia Poinsettia die added with stickles and lots of yummy berries.
Well I love it and even though I felt sad that I didn't manage many more I know I'm well on the way for next years!! lol
Challenges I am entering are:
House Mouse & Friends  -  Gold or Silver
(NEW)Gruffies and Guests  -  Anything Goes
(NEW)Fun Christmas Challenge   -  Anything Goes
Christmas Cards All Year Round  -  Anything Goes
I Love Pro Markers  -  Add A Bow
Going to try some colouring this afternoon as I've sent my daughter to Hobby Craft!!!! lol for basic Pro's as I've sent them dry with all my Christmas images.
Hope you are all having a lovely week and best wishes for 2014!!!!
Thanks again for sticking with me hope to be back soon.
Love and Hugs Chanelle xxx
