I'm late!

Today I am sharing what I like to call a belated "Happy New Year" card or what should have been a Christmas card. 
You'd think someone who made cards and has in the past worked in a Post Office would be aware that
a.  Christmas is coming! 
and
b.  That foreign dates are well before UK ones.
I am aware of both, honest, but every year I get caught out with this.
In my defence a new address was required for this card which I would not get till Christmas and I couldn't reciprocate until then.
This year I decided not to worry and just to make a nice card in the New Year with maybe a slight Christmas theme.  Here it is;


All the stamps are from Waltzing Mouse, I love their range especial those designed to work with the Spellbinder dies.
I have kept it simple with a brown and cream theme....not too Christmassie but added a wee bit of stickles glitter and Vintage photo distress ink then finished with clear seed beads.
Another less is more card for you....


You can see the glitter better in this picture although it does look a little yellow it is in fact clear.
Anyway this card is winging it's way to New Zealand tomorrow....not far to go!

What do you think of my new blog background?
I had a few issues today with my previous one so decided to go for a whole new look.  I do wish I was more computer literate.   You would not believe how long it took me to change it....let's just say it is embarrassing! 
More from me tomorrow for WOYWW!!
