1st Birthday

Morning everyone, this is my first card of 2012. A bit slow to get going and then I took the cold and everything ground to a halt for a couple of days but hopefully it will be one of many from now on.  Bought the Sugar Nellie stamp and K&C papers just before Christmas as a little pressy to myself  as I don't get crafty stuff from family (they wouldn't n o where to start!) but I did get a Bigshot from Hubby and loving it. In my case it's so much easier to crank that handle than my Cuttlebug which has I must say served me well over the years but has  now been put  into retirement. Everything goes through so smoothly so was a great buy for me.   They all gave me money to buy what I wanted so I put some of it towards Coral Paintshop Pro. Now that's going to be a real challenge for me, hope I wasn't too hasty on buying it when I could of tried out a trial run of it first. Nothing like jumping in with both feet is there!
