Prairie Fairy Fun Friday#43 - New Beginnings

Good Afternoon my dears,  Well it's New Years Eve and It's our Wedding Anniversary Today, we got married 37 years ago , boy how time flies!!!!   Like every other year apart from the day we got married we will be working!!!   although we will still be celebrating in a fashion.  We are both professional singers and we always have a gig New Years Eve,  this year we are entertaining at a party in a lovely hotel near Edinburgh, but no drinks will be consumed until we get home around 3.00am, then we will have a wee dram to welcome the New Year in.

Anyway enough from me, it's Friday and that means we have another wonderful bi-weekly challenge over at

This week we have the theme of  "New Beginnings"  I've taken the theme as a new baby and used the wonderful image called Mothers Love as the focal point of my card.  Isn't this image adorable for a new baby card. It's from Prairie Fairy Designs and can be found HERE.  The full recipe for my card can be found beneath this post.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Digital Tuesday Challenge:  This week it's Anything Goes and include a digital image of some form

Sentimental Sunday Challenge:  This week they would love to see something for a Baby + a sentiment.

Craft Your Days Away Challenge:  Anything Goes this week.

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge: Would like to see distressing this week.

Thank you so much for visiting I would like to wish you all a


 I hope 2011 is special for you all.
