Happy New Year

A quick posting to wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best for 2009. I am so looking fwd to see what you all will be able to create and to follow your work for an entire new year.

I have not been able to craft much during this X-mas break, but I managed to make this card (a special order from my neighbours). One of their relatives turn 40 on Jan 2nd and he loves music - so I thought Charlie Bond would be useful + the lyrics (in Swedish) to Happy B'day.

I tried our new scanner - that Santa came with. I think it is not really sharp and the colours are a little bit pale, but I hope I will get the hang of it soon ;-)

Wish you all a nice relaxing first day of 2009!



Card ingredients:
Stamp: Charlie Bond from WoJ - WoJ stamps also available at RoP
Papers - from stash
Dew drops from RoP
Flower Punch from our local craft shop Pysselakuten
Lyrics - found on internet
Piano and trumpet images from the internet

Happy New Year to you my dear and hope you are all well and have had a restful break. Not much crafting for me either..most of mine was done before I had 3 little boys at home all day!!! I love your card..the monochrome is great and I love the music sheet paper..such a great idea.

Much love and best wishes for 2009!
