Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and creative 2023!

Starting off the year with a quick and easy card using some new toys I received at Christmas! :)

Sending this card over to NBUS Challenge #46.  Thanks Dolly!

And you may have noticed that I've updated my blog design.  This was a fun project I did for myself between Christmas and New Year's. :)

As some of you know ... pink is my favourite colour, with orange a close second.  I found this image last year and have been holding on to it until today.  I love flowers, especialy in these colours. :)

And finishing off this post, a Merry Christmas photo of Jessie and Violeta by Alex!

Beautiful flowers Loll, and I love the pretty green over the top, and the white embossed sentiment looks great. What a wonderful photo Alex has taken of both sweet dogs, and it seems unbelievable that Jessie is more than three now. Thank you for your new year wishes and sending you all my good wishes for 2023! x

Pat said...

Sorry Loll, I also meant to say how lovely your new blog design is with those pretty flowers. x

Oh, how wonderful with these pretty flowers and one of my favorite color combos! Love the frame with the white embossed sentiment. Beautiful coloring. Everything I love in a card! Your new blog header is gorgeous. I know I should do that, too. To top it all off you've given us the most precious picture of Jessie and Violeta to adore. Thank you and happy new year, Loll!

Your new header is beautiful, Loll, as is the birthday card. I love that bright green frame. I don't know how you get those darling dogs to pose like that but I sure enjoy seeing them.

Ooh, I love your new header and the fun font, Lolly! I'm glad you treated yourself to a redo as you're always doing this for others. Your card is so bright and pretty! Jessie and Violetta look so serious. I wonder what they were plotting? Happy New Year, my dear friend.

The header is lovely and I like how you did the name across the bottom. That is a pretty birthday card with your new goodies. I don't know Alex gets them to sit so still and look at the camera but this is a wonderful picture of the two of them.
