First Post for 2018

Good Morning Crafters, Happy New Year to you all, sorry Im a bit late in wishing you this but last Saturday I did at last get my second Cataract done so now Im going through the month of drops and Im really pleased with the outcome I have at last vision in my right eye though to be honest they had quite a job breaking down the cataract as it had started to go hard, so you can image how I looked when I came home it looked as if I had been in a fight with a boxer, but today its looking a hell of lot better nearly all the bloodshot has gone.
I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and for me the New Year was extra special as my third great grandson decided to make an appearance and his parents being 1st time parents are learning all about looking after him and I wish them all the very best and thank you so much for giving me such a gorgeous baby Great Grandson.
I dont often show photos on either my facebook page of blog as now a days its not advisable so forgive me if I dont do so.
Anyway hear this is a set of cards I eventually finished of yesterday I havent as yet put any sentiments on them as I have found just recently its been necessary for me to make some quite thank you cards and I think these maybe just ideal for that or even sending love to someone, what do you think?

I must admit they were stolen from an idea  Francoise Read used and demonstrated on Hochanda just before Xmas, but I have put my own bent on them I used the same papers and stamp but actually instead of using ribbon I used a mask and some ink through it and around the edge to finish it off.
The actually stamp is from Woodware and the papers are decoupage papers for the topper and the backing paper is from a fabulous paper pack called "Letters from Home" from DCWV its abrilliant pack and even has diecut papers as well. By the say its from the same sheet the backing paper and using the different colours inks they have changed the whole colour of them, clever dont you think?
Anyway hope you like the result.
