Thanks for popping in.
What are you up to this evening?
Last night of this old year and all that jazz.
Are you seeing in the New Year with friends?
Or are you staying in the dry?
Or heaven forbid, has your life been tipped upside down
and your home been destroyed by flooding?
It’s pouring down outside as I write,
and all I think of when I hear the unrelenting rain is those poor souls in the disaster areas.
So I decided to make a card for you
using Color Bursts yet again,
because these pigment powders
really capture not only the crazy weather but also 2015 for me.
It’s been a hell of a year, hasn’t it?
A little bit raw in places,
where we’ve just had to fake it to make it,
and pretend everything was ok.
Until it was.
a little bit messy in places,
where we’ve just had to hang on and have faith that things
would come good again.
And they did.
Some very stormy patches,
where we’ve just had to sit tight and let the clouds pass.
But really amazing too!
Unbelievably exciting stuff!
Good and unexpected things happened,
Team Clarity blossomed and grew,
and everything was totally Groovi!
We went from 3 laser machines to 7 in 3 months.
We just basically worked our arses off all year, didn’t we ?!?!?
But then there was that epic US road trip with Dave and Steve.
Which was so brilliant,
I’ve already booked next year’s vacation for us!
The worst part of this last year was when Dave got so very ill.
That was a show stopper for me.
The best part of this last year was when Dave got well again.
Which he did.
So back to this evening,
Grace is off to a party with her best friend Lizzie
and the Clarity gang.
Mark is off to a party in London with his old school friends.
Dave and I are staying in, and joining Jools Holland
to wave the Old Year adieu and wave the New Year in.
Whatever you are doing,
wherever you are and whoever you are with,
Dave and I would like to wish you a
and creative New Year.
And before I wrap it up,
I have one little test for you,
to see how well you know me by now…
Let’s take a closer look at the card.
(By the way, these Wee Folk are joining me on the TV this weekend. Err, not October !)
Happy New Year.
Well, for those of you who have our Word Chains,
you will maybe know that whilst we have ‘Happy,’
the words ‘Year’ and ‘New’ have yet to be made.
Which means one of two things….
Hands up if you think I cobbled together the words I needed
by masking off letters from other Word Chain stamps.
Just write MASKED below.
Hands up if you think I actually cut up the Word Chain stamps to get the letters I needed to be able to write New and Year.
Just write CUT below.
The truth will be revealed tomorrow xxxxx
HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!!!
love and hugs,
