Hello from 2017!

Morning - I have scheduled this post in advance as I fully expect I will be feeling a little delicate this morning after a New Years Eve celebration in Abersoch with friends.
I can not get over how quickly the last year has gone - only seems like yesterday we were planning our wedding and doing our invites on New Years day 2016!

So this year my resolution is to take better care of myself... little things like moisturising regularly and using leave in conditioner!! Nothing major!! Although we have said we will do a dry January and I would really like to get back to running after a few months rest due to injury to my hip. I need to drink more water and eat more fruit and less chocolate (But there is soooo much of it from Christmas and you can't throw it away!!) So hopefully I will get a waist like our Petunia Butterthwaite in my card below but I ain't holding my breathe!!! Although I could give her ample hips a miss!!

This card was simple to make - I cut some stripes of patterned paper from My Favourite things pad called Fun and Frolicks and glued them to the edges. I used a fine black pen to doodle around the edge and add the dots. The greeting is from Pebbles and the 2017 is from Doodlebug.

I used these promarkers and Flexmarkers on the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft peach, Coral & Spice.
Shoes, glasses and lips - Poppy & Cocktail pink.
Hair -  Cloud blue & Powder blue.
Costume or leotard? - Soft Lime, Lime Zest, Lime Twist & Pear Green.

I hope you like her and that 2017 brings you everything you wish for.
