First of all I would like to wish all my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
I would also like to take a moment to remember absent friends and family and send a big hug out to any other people who are missing loved ones (for whatever reason) at this time of year.

This stamp set from Chocolate baroque is called Ivy trails and although it was a little difficult to cut out it was worth it. I used pearly mists and glimmer mists to create all the colour on my tag and I stamped with Distress ink. Dont forget it is your last week to enter this months challenge over at Crafty Bloggers network to be in with a chance of winning a clear stamp set from our sponsors.
A new sketch this week at the Friday Sketch Challenge and we are sponsored by Ladybug Crafts inc.

It has been a while since I blogged one of my Swap Bot swaps so I thought I would share this Mandala I have created for December’s swap. I found another challenge blog for Zentangle called The Bright Owl Zendala Dare. The mandala template is Number 32 and I had great fun with it, I used some linnen effect paper to add a little interest and texture and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
