Hi Everyone

Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you are over the festivities and are getting back to normal now and that you received some nice crafty gifts for Christmas.

I don't normally do this but I have made one or two New Year's resolutions for this year, but whether I stick to them is another matter!  The main one is to try and keep my craft room tidy!  It's been a proper tip just lately and I'll have to spend some time clearing things up.  The second one is to try and use some of the stamps I haven't used yet and the third one is to try and lose some weight.  We shall see whether this all happens.

Anyway, this card was for hubby's birthday just before Christmas.

It is a LOTV digi image which I flipped over to make him look right-handed. Hubby loves to be in his workshop and his hobby is to make small working locos hence the picture of the Flying Scotsman.  I coloured the image with copics, distressed the edges of the paper, added some hessian and die cut cogs and a little metal heart.  The sentiment is computer generated. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:
