Fog, New Year Wishes and a Sticky Note Holder!

Hello friends
New Year's Eve!
I've still got festive crafty offerings for you!
I managed to take a few photos when it wasn't foggy.
It has been pea soupers nearly every day.
This was the view from my city office window yesterday morning.
I'm on the 12th floor and normally I can see Tower Bridge!
Back to craft...
Today it is a golden sticky note holder featuring Victorian Sapphire dies
available from Create and Craft.
I've also used Layered Poinsettia
(the big brother of Mini Poinsettia!)
These are so simple to make and super little gifts for friends and/or work colleagues.
I'm so attached to mirror card at the moment, spent years not using it and now
keep delving into the gold and silver.
I hadn't realised how many different golds there are - some really bright and yellow,
I think I prefer the more subtle gold.
Silver is safe...not many different shades of that!

I'm looking forward to a quiet evening at home with the boys,
pets, Prosecco and takeaway!
Hoping there isn't too many fireworks although luckily Bella doesn't take
too much notice.
It remains for me to wish you all a fantastic New Year -
let it be creative, healthy and happy.
I'll raise a glass to you all at midnight...I'm actually going to stay awake!
Take care friends.
