Hello 2018!

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well & warm and not struggling too much weather wise. We had snow over the weekend so guess what I'm doing today? You guessed.....snuggling down in my craft room! Before I waffle on anymore I'd like to wish you all a (very belated) wonderful happy, healthy & craft filled New Year! I hope 2018 is everything you want it to be! Ok, I know I'm late but at least we're still in January lol! Have you made (and broken) any New Year resolutions? None for me, I'm just gonna take each day as it comes, craft when I can, blog more & try and challenge myself more craft wise........and maybe have a much tidier craft desk!
So for today I have a card topper to share........a great way of using up those snippets we all have lying around.......and a topper is much easier to store too then when needed I can just mount it onto a card blank & that's it......job done! I used simple matting & layering of black card and silver mirri then finished with some die cut pieces........simple!
Rightio, got some jobs to do.........then it's playtime! Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to I hope your day's a good one! xx
