Happy New Year - a little late!!

Hi everyone - sorry for the lack of postings on here, but my mojo went walkabout, 
then I had a week in Spain and I have spent the last week trying to motivate myself again!!
So I decided I really ought to get back into blogging, and here's my first post for 2015
(yes I know it's the last day of January - be thankful for small mercies!)

I decided that I would base my cards for classes on the alphabet,
 with a different letter each week, so week one was 
A for Anniversary

Card closed

 I decided to make a very simple gap card, using the Sweetheart punch 
and the small heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in Red Glimmer Card.

Card open - you can see the gap now
The congratulations sentiment is from the For My Family stamp set (now retired - but really useful)
and the Happy Anniversary is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Well I hope you have enjoyed seeing this -I will try to blog more often again - honest!
