NEW TO ME!

Really exciting day today - my first Circle Journal came back to me. I didn't realise when I began this journal how precious it would become. Every single layout has been created with love and feeling. I will post some photographs when I can get some good daylight.

As the weather is so cold and windy I created this card for http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/ to evoke memories of Spring, which can't be too far away. Well, the daffodils and tulip bulbs are showing through and Easter is early this year, in fact the earliest it's been since 1913!



Mid week little extra...'New to me.....'
The first little extra dare of the new year is linking in with our main dare last Friday- still on the 'New' theme - think of it as a
'double dare!':)
We want to see your Crafty Christmas Presents ! Make a card using a new toy you had for Christmas, or in fact any crafty goodies that you received. Its a great chance to try out all your new toys/papers/embellishments! We'd love to see what crafty presents Santa dropped into your stocking.....

Papers are Imaginisce 'For Peeps Sake' from http://charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/
with matching rub-ons, which were a Christmas present from me to me! The ribbon is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies and was a present from my Secret Santa on CCC Forum. Brads are new Papermania and sentiment is Heidi Grace.

Wow, Juliet this is beautiful, such a cute little bunny. I love the bright springlike papers, it does make you think of brighter days to come. None of my daffs have shown through yet but I only planted them in oct so that may be why, we only moved here last Jan and I was disappointed to find not a single daff in the garden. I have planted hundreds! My crocus are starting to peek through though!
