Good Morning and a Happy New Year

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year, we had a lovely time with the family.  I also hope you escaped all the flooding.  Boxing Day was very wet here. the river flooded some of the roads in our village and destroyed an old mill building on the bridge which they are now demolishing.  The bridge and road have been damaged so that route out of the village is now closed.

On to my card now. we have a new challenge starting today on My Time to Craft.


Sorry the photo is not very good, I can't get my camera to upload on to my computer so I have had to take it with my phone.

  4. Happy New Year Pat ! Hope it's a happy and healthy year for you and your family!
    Glad you are safe after all the dreadful flooding… I was thinking of you and wondering if you were ok. Saw the mill collapsing into the river on the news. Our village has been ok as we had the flood defences built up really well in the 1980's. In olden times where I live used to be under water though… such a scary thought!
    Aww your card is really sweet… such a lovely image and your soft colouring is perfection! Love the pretty papers and flowers! :-)
    Can't wait until I can get back crafting again!
    Hope you have a fab weekend!
    Love Sue B xx

  5. I don't know what to say first Pat - it comes as no surprise to me that your card is so beautifully made and designed. I think your phone took a darn good picture.
    I am surprised and sorry to hear about the old mill building. I do hope the bridge can be repaired.
    There has been lots of flooding here in the U.S. as well.
    Wishing you a fantastic and creative New Year Pat!
