Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all had a great Christmas.

Before I get going I just want to say a Big thank you to everyone who visited my blog over the course of last year and to thank those who gave me some much needed support.

Can’t say I’m sad to see the back of last year, what with all my medical problems and then loosing my dad so quickly after he was diagnosed with cancer, so I’m keeping everything crossed that this year will be a better one with a lot less trauma.
I do still have another eye op to look forward to in February but on the positive side, I hoping it will restore my sight enough to make my card making and some scrapbooking (I hope to really get stuck into that family album at long last) a lot easier afterwards.

Anyway, it’s the start of a New Year and hopefully lots more fun over on the Queen of Snoop’s Blog, where I’m sure that Julia will still keep us on our toes by keeping a look out for what’s on our work desk every Wednesday.

Here’s the fist photo of my desk this year and I’m sorry to say it a very boring one this morning.

It’s all very clear and tidy by necessity really because it’s that time of year again when the old tax return needs to be filled in, so that’s exactly what I plan to do today.
Now if it had been What’s on your Work desk Tuesday that would have been different story because I spent most of yesterday clearing up the mess that I made while making a few urgently needed birthday cards …..and what a breath of fresh air they were after making all those Christmas cards!

The first few cards are made using the Craftworks Cards set Ooh La La papers and Die-cuts. The colours are just so scrummy and go together so well….I love them!

These other cards are made using scraps and I can’t remember what they were, sorry.

Right then, I’m going to grab a cup of coffee, hit the tax return and then hopefully I’ll have time later to do a spot of hopping to see what you’re all up to.

Catch you later.

Lovely clean desk. It's a bit early for tax returns here. Don't get mine till the end of the month. But looks like you get a start on things. And these cards are truly lovely. My style and everything. Happy WOYWW on Thursday from #16.

Your cards are very beautiful. I hate cleaning and the cleaning fairy seems to be MIA, so my desk looks nothing like yours.
