Happy Hogmanay!!!





Hello everyone,  Woohooo!!! it's nearly 2012,  I think this will be my last card for 2011!!!  it's a New Year card I made for a few challenges.  Tomorrow I am spending the day with my dear Hubby as we celebrate our 38th Wedding Anniversary.  Where has the time gone!!!!  They say as you get older time goes faster !!! I hope not cause I want to spend another 38years with him.  lol xx

Anyway back to my card. I've used sweet Tilda with hellebore's, coloured her with pro markers and flex markers.  A full recipe for my card is below this post, I don't want to bore you with all the little details here.  

Just in case I don't manage onto blogger tomorrow may I take this opportunity to with everyone a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Hogmanay when it arrives. 

Don't forget to take Black Bun, a piece of Coal and a bottle of Whisky if you are going to first foot anyone.   This may sound like gobbledygook to most but here in Scotland if you are the first person over someones thresh hold then the Coal is for warmth throughout the New Year, the Black Bun in for sustenance and the Whisky is for Fire in your Belly. lol  xxx

Your card is just darling, Suzi! So pretty in pinks and beautifully colored. Congratulations on your 38th! Quite a milestone in our society.
