Love your artsy layers, and that's such a positive colour to take us into the New Year. The tiny wildflowers are just perfect as far as I'm concerned. Thank you so much for your lovely words over at mine recently - I'm very happy you liked the Sellotape Snowman so much (and so is he!).

I'm still in Christmas hibernation (don't come out fully until after 12th Night on 6th January!), but am trying to do a bit of catching up with people even so. Happy New Year!

I love the pretty card you made. And, I sure hope you are not in the area of the horrific fires in Australia. I saw the fireworks on the news as well. Regardless of the fire they did the fireworks anyway. I hope you have a wonderful new year.

There was so much discussion in the UK with Sydney going ahead with the fireworks display, with those horrendous fires Ina x
What a vibrant and eye catching mixed media card. Great techniques and love how you used both of the stencils x.
Here's to a Happy, Healthy and Crafty 2020 dear friend x.
