January 2017 - Anything Goes

Welcome everyone to our first challenge for 2017 with the title
chosen by the lovely Brenda
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year! I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Resolutions. I can make them and am pretty good at sticking to them but equally some years I think I have enough going on without having to add something else into the mix - guess which camp I'm in this year!?! The lovely exercise bunny image seems wholly appropriate to accompany this page - after all many of use promise we'll do more! If you'd like to see more, my blog is always there! Gabrielle x

Happy New Year everyone, and to help my new year resolutions to 
a) get organised, and 
b) lose half my bodyweight :-)
here's a card that I made whilst eating up the Christmas chocolate!

More details can be found here on my blog. I hope 2017 is kind to you, and thanks very much for looking x

I rather indulged myself with this month's great theme of Anything Goes and gathered some favourite supplies and using some of my all time favourite techniques made an art panel for this fabulous quote -  which is quite apt for the beginning of the year. Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see some more details.
This time of the year I find I need a bit of colour to cheer me up. Maybe you're equally affected by the short days and grey skies... so, to ward off the SAD disorder, the Crafty doctor prescribes a dose of colour!

Should you wonder how I made this card... all the details are on my blog here.

Happy New Year to you all! 
Although it's the first day of the new year I haven't brought you here a new year's card but a birthday tag. For me the January means the birthday of two very special people in my life: my sister and my daughter. So I can't waste time at the end of December I always have to make birthday cards too.
If you want to see the supply list of this tag, please visit my blog.

Hello there and a very happy New Year to you! I hope you can join us for our new challenge of anything goes - I had lots of fun playing with paperartsy stamps and gelatos - if you'd like to know what I did please go over to my blog here.

Happy New Year to Everyone 
Im starting my new year with a journal page for this months Challenge. The theme is Anything Goes and I've added
A lot of layers, all of which you can see over on my blog. Hope to see you there.

Happy New Year everyone! 
In our theme of "Anything goes", I decided to play with some wonderful stamps from Tracy Scott. For more details, please visit my blog.

Happy New Year everyone !

Happy New Year everybody! 
Since this is the first day of the New Year, I made a tear-off calendar. 
I love the rusty look, so I decided to upcycle this calendar, which looked boring before.
If you want to see, how I made it, please visit my blog.
Hello everyone, Happy New Year and welcome to 2017. This is a wonderful time to raise our glasses and toast all the new beginnings ahead of us. For our family it will be a new grand baby due in May.  So exciting. Our challenge at Country View this month is "Anything goes" and I decided to make a New Year card.
The background is a mixed media master board using my own handmade stencils using my glue gun and a palm tree stamp ( I kid you not!) If you would like to find out more and also see my step by step pop over to my blog here where a glass of champagne  warm welcome, as always, awaits you.

Bye for now,
