New Beginnings!

Hello there, my lovely friends......the first two weeks of this new year seem to have flown already, and whilst this is my first blog post of the year, I have been keeping myself out of mischief with a bit of  DT work and having a bit of a re-jig at home that I will tell you more about later. 

This post is all about New Beginnings which is just as well as this is the theme for the new 
This in itself is a new beginning for me, as I am moving over from Team 2 to Team 1.
I chose to make a retirement card for this challenge, as I think this sums up what retirement should be - a new beginning.

Our DT have made some amazing cards to inspire you, so I do hop you will hop on over and play along!

Our sponsors are 
My DT card features:
  • Patches - Done Fishing from Crafty Sentiments
  • coloured with Promarkers
  • sentiment uses Unkept font
  • papers from an old Forever Friends Christmas stack
  • ribbon from stash
Another New for me is my New Craft Desk - since we moved into this house I have been limited to storing  my craft stash in the corner of our bedroom and having to work on the top of a chest of drawers or haul stuff downstairs to our dining table. However, as laptops have replaced PC's in our home - I decided to set up camp on our old computer desk - and am loving having this little area to loose myself in - would you like to see it.......

Ok, so its not a massive craft room (that will come in a few years time when the kids move out!) this will do me nicely till then.

I would like to enter my card into:
