12 Tags of 2013 - (January) Tim Holtz

This is my take on Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2013. I've always wanted to do these but there was always something else to be done and this year I am making a point of doing one every month. Soooo, when sleep totally evaded me last night, I decided that instead of staring at the ceiling from a different angle every five minutes, I'll make a tag. Of course, by the time I was finished with it, my mind was so stimulated and there was actually no point in going back to bed. No need to tell you that I've had a caffeine overload today but at least I spent the time in a productive way which is what this tag is all about....make every minute count!!

Till next time...take care!xx

The Start Of Something New

Hello friends :) Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas Season and before I say anything else, I'm taking this opportunity to wish all my friends a wonderful 2013!! On that note, the theme over at Once Upon A Sketch for the January challenge is "The Start Of Something New" and once again Nadia provided a beautiful sketch to work with. I was in Mozambique in December and on NewYears Eve we were playing around on the beach and it was quite fascinating to see the tide wash away the silly things we were writing in the sand and then an idea started forming in my head to take a photograph of the tide washing away my 2012 inscription in the sand and for some reason, once I wrote 2013, the water just did not want to reach it so it was quite symbolical for me...the start of something new :) The journaling reads: "A fresh start, a new beginning, so many possibilities!! Hoping that this new year will bring everyone more joy, more music, more laughter, more gratitude, more friends, more surprises and lots of happy memories!!

The vine is a home-made job-a-la-Cathy and I used some pretty little pearls from Flourish With A Bling.

And here is Nadia's beautiful sketch:)

That's all for now, take care till next time :)

Double Tri-fold Cascade Cards

These are just a few cards I made for some very special friends who unknowingly touched me very deeply with their simple acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. I'm not really a "card" person but I had a lot of fun making these and the best part of thse cards are that you can insert little token gifts and/or tags within the folds and it becomes kind of a wrapped gift as!
