Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Hi to you all, boy I have been MIA for such long time and feel so left out by not posting here as I hoped to do but time has just run away with me.  Now that the busy time has passed maybe I can get down to serious crafting as I have so many projects in mind that I want to try but have just not had the time to carry them out.  All ready for Christmas, a few parcels to wrap and that is it.  Time to get the feet up with a wee glass of something in my hand and reflect on the past year.

My picture today is a picture I tried for my niece Megan.  We saw something similar on facebook and she asked if I could try the frame. Of course I said yes and using my new Christmas present from hubby this is what I came up with.  Megan absolutely dotes on her nephew and nieces and I have inserted a small photo of them in the hearts.  I have a few more ideas for similar projects so look out next year.  I love my Silhouette Cameo, when you have lots to cut out it is a godsend and I was able to download masses with the $10 and $25 cards that came in the box.  There was a sale on the Silhouette site for a few weeks and everything was half price.  But I do still love my dies nothing will replace my feelings for them.

This a an Ikea picture frame and as a background I used Papermainia Home for Christmas paper then an 8 x 8 white card and mounted the large heart and inserted the smaller cut outs  after I folded them to stand out a bit better.   I used the leftover hearts to decorate around the larger heart.  Hope Megan likes it.

I have tried to comment over the last few weeks but if time has run away from me, I have at least admired your gorgeous work. 

Only leaves me to say Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you all and hope 2014 is all you hope it will be.

Take care
