Happy New Year



 
Good morning, I'm popping in to say Happy New Year and to thank you to all of you for a wonderful 2011.  One of my greatest joys is creating and blogging.  Being able to share it with you makes it even more enjoyable. So I am wishing you a great big thank you and may all of you have a happy and healthy 2012. 
Today's card is for the current ColourQ challenge.  I had a terrible time getting a good photo of the card.  It actually has a touch of shimmer on it too.  Looks much better in real life!
Before I sign off, I thought I'd share a picture of what we came home to last night.  Look at our little sleeping beauty, Marcel.  Don't you love those sweet rosy cheeks?  Midnight was a bit too late for him.  Jonathon said he fell asleep about 11.  Our sweet little man.
