January 2019 - Landscape/Cityscapes

Welcome to our first challenge of the New Year!

The theme for January is Cityscape/Landscape, chosen by Craftyfield.
For this challenge we want to see countryside or city scenes. Seascapes and mountain scenes are OK too, but a single house even with a garden, a few trees do not constitute a landscape... Feel free to add faeries or critters however, the scenes do not need to be realistic!


If last night's New Year's eve party finished to the sound of the song "New York, New York", you will understand what inspired me to create this card:

Yes, it's the morning after the night before and though we may feel a bit fragile after too much partying, we must face the new day as well as the New Year!
Come by my blog to read all the details for this card.


Happy New year dear friends and welcome to 2019. I won't shout too loud just in case you partied very hard last night!
For the new challenge I went with the Landscape part and created a New Year card. 

I made a very wintry landscape and added some Tim Holtz inspirational words which are very apt to think about today.
If you would like to see how I created my landscape just hop over to my blog here 
where a glass of bubbly a very warm welcome awaits. 
Bye for now,

Hello there! I have chosen the landscape option for this wonderful challenge...I was so pleased when I saw the theme. You can check out further details at my blog here. I do hope you can join us!

Good morning and Happy New Year. I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and here we are again with another new year!

Now I have to admit that this challenge was WAY out of my comfort zone, but I did enjoy getting messy and inking up my previously un-inked hares. There are lots more details over on my blog so I hope to see you there.

Have a very happy 2019 and thank you for looking x
