Good morning bloggers…

Happy New Year!!

I hope you enjoyed the holidays and that 2014 will bring you all the health, wealth and happiness that you could ever wish for!

We had 3 full weeks off and it just whizzed by, in fact I have no idea where the time went! We’re back to usual now and if you placed any orders on the website over the Christmas break they will be posted out this week for you

I’d like to say a huge thanks to our design team for looking after the blog for me over the holidays, I’m sure you’ll agree that they had some wonderful cards to share and I can’t wait to see what they make this year

A few of you have been enquiring when our sale starts   …we actually had our sale in December so sorry if you missed that but do keep an eye out for our regular special offers

We have lots of fabulous new products and ideas for 2014 which we hope you will love and we are very excited about them! Our first stamp launch of the year will be on January 13th and the DT will be showing sneak peeks from today. It’s a gorgeous collection of animal images featuring our ever popular James the Bear character and also some more from Jack, Patch and Puss

It’s our 10th birthday this year (woohoo!!) so we have some fab celebrations in the pipeline to mark the occasion. We also have exciting plans for the blog too, there will be lots of new candy and competitions so watch out for news about that!

We had some lovely entries for our ‘anything but a card’ challenge which has now closed, there will be a new challenge announced at midday today and I’ll let you have the winners for December shortly

My first sneaky peek of the new images is James Umbrella and our Gretha made this beautiful card…

She also used papers from our lovely Petal Fresh pad

Make sure you check out all the DT blogs over the coming week to see what they have made, I hope you’ll love the new stamps and as always we will have a blog hop before the launch with a chance to win them!

Bye for now!
