New Year Snippets

Happy New Year

Here's wishing each and every one of you a happy and healthy 2018 and I hope each day brings you lots of laughs and smiles.

I've finally made my snippets card so now I'm skipping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to join the other Playmates. The image is from Bugaboo and coloured with Promarkers with an extra balloon cut out and added on a foam pad. Then I juggled and stuck some small snippets of coloured card around the edge of a card base to make a frame before adding the image which hid all the uneven edges and blank bit in the middle. To finish I added a peel-off 'happy birthday'

Thank you all so much for the words of comfort you left me in my last post.... I really appreciate all your kindess and friendship and I'm now managing to get myself into some sort of normality so I should be catching up with you all properly in the next week or two.

Grand idea to use the snippets of coloured card around the edges. It looks so colourful. Sorry to read about your Dad. I lost mine the end of last August so know how you must be feeling. Hope 2018 will be a better year for you. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Kanda, thank you so much for your comments, I have been away for Christmas and New Year so I have not been able to comment but it is lovely to see you back.
Love your image and a great design, but the sentiment is fabulous.
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Cute little monkey! I do hope 2018 is a better year for you. I lost my mother several months ago-it was a horrible 2017 for me as well. I am sending you hugs to get you through the days.It is taking me a while to get back in to heart is just sad and that is hard on the mojo. Take care my crafty friend.
