Goodbye 2006 !
Is it the end ?
Or just the beginning ?
Saddam Hussein finally executed!
The Taiwan earthquake shook our access to the Internet here in little Singapore - most of the access is ok now - but it did hit us bad the first couple of days !
I woke up today to find out that 6 small bombs exploded in various locations across Bangkok ( was there in early Nov ! )
& my work got published for the first time !
published Jan 1 , 2007 on Scrapstreet.com ! wahoo !
John Ross @8 ! for a chipboard article
Incidentally their Card Corner features Thank You cards to kick off 2007 ! ;-)
As the New Year begins , Here's to the road ahead !
Who knows what the 'morrow may bring !
I wish you all more faith, more hope , more strength for the New Year ahead !

This is quite a challenge for me simply due to a lack of material in Black & white - however did find this image in my Christmas stash which I received from Scotland in a swap before - kinda stained glass effect - holographic background - Christmas angels I think ! Not sure if this was a hand stamped image - as the person who sent me this is a stamper ! - mounted on a cd with silver peel off greeting.
Think I'll keep it for myself , Rhi - lol - it's the only image like this I received from Scotland - precious !

Wow ! What a challenge !Have to admit - lol !
Being a non-stamper & all !
I thought in terms of circles mainly - also bubble wrap - but wasn't sure what I would do with the stamped bubble wrap .
I decided to stick with anything circular I could find - from plastic bottles, bottle caps , marker ends ( there were some interesting patterns that emerged from those ) but mainly I stuck to using erasers - erasers of pencils - mechanical ones etc .
My eleven & eight year olds were very happy to help out & they stamped the paper for the second tag.
Also testing out the new CanoScan 4400F that we have with these little gift tags .
supplies : DCWV , glitter glue

Ok , the music I like may not be everyone's cup of tea , but truth be told my all time fave artiste is Josh Groban for sooo many wonderful reasons - ( have others too - Michael Buble , dare i say James Blunt ! lol )
made tonnes of friends all over thru his fan club etc
soo I have made lots of cards based on the lyrics of the songs
from the albums of Josh Groban .........
Long before I did any scrapping I loved making photo cards , duh !
sounds like an oxymoron now - lol
From : "My Confession"
"remember when it rained "
Yes , Rhi - did use my own handwriting here , lol .

This week's darer is Jo and your challenge is to make a card along any theme, colour, shape, size, etc.
but it must incorporate....
cards were mounted on DCWV cardstock -
couldn't resist adding some peel offs to the 1st one
( got them from the UK ! )
satin ribbon added to the 2nd.
my own first tentative attempt ,inspired by the Design Team !
( learnt a load overnight ! from each & every one's cards )
Heidi Swapp chipboard letters , BG papers
It's nice to try out this doodling idea that we so often see in layouts these days -
doodling on everything & everywhere !
