A Golden 2017

Hello friends

A New Year card today, anyone else still having trouble
coming to terms with typing/writing 2017?
I'm permanently placing this card on my desk to remind me!
I created this project for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and it 
went up on their blog yesterday.

Despite the dull frosty day I did capture the gold more in this photo.
Dies are 5 x 7 Matting Basics, Victorian Numbers and 

All speedily constructed with MyStik Permanent Strips Dispenser -
so easy to use and refill.

For the full tutorial please feel free to visit the 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog here.

Today I am cooking a full Christmas dinner - we are having a rerun
of Christmas day as Elliott was quite poorly all over Christmas
and couldn't really enjoy it.
His appetite is up to full strength again now so I fully expect him
to recommence eating me out of house and home! 
Wish me luck finding Brandy Butter in the supermarket!

Take care friends

  9. Good morning Christine, had the sun yesterday but a bit more seasonal today so fits in with the snowflake on the card! Enjoy your dinner, though doubtful that you will find brandy butter - might be able to get a packet of instant brandy custard? Not the same I know. Best wishes Jackie xx

  10. Hi Christine,
    Love the card, it's nice and shiny. I'm not having trouble remembering the new year date...I'm having trouble remembering what day it is lol. Glad to hear that Elliott is back to full health again and ready to enjoy his belated Christmas dinner. I hope you found the brandy butter okay.
