Saying Goodbye To 2012

Hi Everyone,
 
I hope you all had a great Christmas. 
 
I would like to thank you all for your support in visiting my blog and for or the lovely comments you have left me, throughout 2012. 
 
I would especially like to thank the visitors from outside of the UK. The most of my visitors are at the moment, from Russia. So I would like to say a special thanks to them and I wish you could leave me a message on my comments, so I know who you are.
 
This is my first card I have made since Christmas. Today is the first day that we have no visitors, or that we are out visiting. I really enjoyed sitting at my desk and chilling out, making this card this morning. Even listening to my husband in the background, cursing, as he was changing the washer on the tap in the kitchen!! Even that did not distract me!
 
The stamp is of course from Lili Of the Valley and I used Distress Inks to colour the image with. Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap for her dress and Tea Dye for her wings and hair. The usual colours for her skin.
 
 
For the flowers, I coloured a scrap of white card with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and used the Nestie Poinsettia Die but cut off the points when I took them out of the dies.
 
The Leaves and the Butterflies dies are Cheery Lyn Designs.  The background papers are from my stash.

 
I am still getting to grips with my new photo programme. Not quite perfected it yet! Practise makes perfect! From looking at these pictures, I still have a lot of practising to do!!
 
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful celebration for the New Year. We are hopefully having a quiet evening, just phoning my in-laws in Australia, if we can get through.
 
Wishing you all a peaceful 2013.
 
Hugs,
