Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Here is hoping that 2016 is going to be a good year. 
I am hoping to be around blogland a little more this year. In February I am going to retire and join my husband in more leisure activities. So I am really looking forward to this. 

I made this simple card  for New Year. 
I used LOTV papers, Nesties and Cuttlebug dots embossing folder. 
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-


  1. Oh, great news about your retirement Elaine! Congratulations - you will love this next chapter of your life!
    Very creative New Years card toots! I really like the bottom corner embossed - there's movement aned texture and love the two fish tail banners!
