Howdy folks!

Well the new year is certainly off and running and I'm already feeling like I'm trying to keep up, LOL! Things are busy here and I haven't been able to craft as much as I would like so for this card I cheated a bit and broke into the Merry January card kit which came together in record time. I did add a few bits of my own to it with the pearls and the teeny tiny Tinks from the retired TGF Neverland set. Other than that though there wasn't a whole lot of thinking or creativity required, which is exactly what I needed. ;)

And now it's time for me to be off and running once again but before I go I have a quick share... ATS has done a discounted bundle of the January Sweet November release where you can get 15% off by ordering all seven of the new characters. Not a bad deal at all!

Amy, this is such a wonderful card! I always think of getting some of those card kits, but am afraid i will have a hard time deviating from what was meant to be made with them - you are so wonderfully creative and I love seeing how you make them "you own" :-)Traci
