Crafty Calendar Challenge - New News!

Happy New Year! This is my first post of the year as its been a busy few weeks. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We had a great time but Carrie was ill from Christmas Eve and it lasted for over a week. I thought she was never going to get better! It was such a shame, once she had opened all her presents she just lay up and hardly touched a thing for days! Her stocking was untouched, The Little Mix cd that she "had to have" lay in its case and her dolls hardly got a look in. When Carrie gets ill, she really gets ill because of her being on the immune suppressants. She just doesn't have anything to fight it off. She is much better now and almost back to her normal self.

Anyway onto why i am here. Its time for the new challenge over at Crafty Calendar to start. 
This month we are looking for your
"NEW NEWS"  -New baby, job, home...anything new!
We have decided to add a optional extra in with our challenge theme. This months its.....

  1. Hi Lynne, Aww such an adorable card! I ♥ this sweet image and pretty pastel colours.

    Sorry to hear Carrie was a poorly girl over Christmas but glad she is feeling better now. How awful for her to be so poorly over Christmas when she is meant to be having a fun time.

    Hope all is well with you.
