Happy New Year!

I hope you all have had an amazing new year and didn't suffer from to many sore heads!

Bronwyn and I have been surfing a few blogs and have fell in love with some stamps they are just so cute but this lady Rachel (she is awesome and with a name like that lol....) has some of the images done as cards already, she is doing an amazing Blog Candy "giveaway" and she will ship it to anywhere so head on over and have a look at her amazing cards - this lady is pure inspiration - leave her a comment and you just never know!

The Sugar Nellie and the Magnolia stamps are just so cute (we couldn't resist and have ordered some in for ourselfs but please let me know if you are interested as I am thinking I might bring some in to sell also). Can't wait for them to arrive so we can start to have a bit of a play.

Here is a card that I made for Jamie who turned 13 yesterday (where has that time gone?) He got Guitar Hero the rock band for his birthday so we spent most of yesterday bashing out tunes on that (I am so glad that the neighbour is half deaf cause he would be by now anyway!)

And it is no where near as good as Nic's but here is my take of her class that is available over at tarisota - I so wanted the proper papers (I am such a scraplifter- sorry Beck that said I am unless there is treats as a reward lol!) but had to make do! We purchased the class and then had to use our own papers as tarisota has sold out of that kit - but you can still sign up and do the class like we did.

Well I thats it from me - so from us here at Embellish It we wish you and your family a VERY Happy and scrappy new Year!

So HAPPY to see you're getting the Swedish stamps form Magnolia in! I LOVE THEM and have a few already. It just gets so expensive getting them from overseas all the time...

Can't wait to see what you create with yours!!
