Happy New Year!!! A Picture, some cards and an award!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I hope all of you had a great time and lot of fun celebrating the New Year. We stayed at home with my mom and a couple of friends. Nothing is better than good company, good wine and food. :)

I didn't have much time to make cards during these days but I managed to make these two. I used two stamps that I received as a gift for my Birthday from a very special friend. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I'm still jumping on my chair with happiness for such an AMAZING gift. You made my day!!! I also need to take pictures of all the wonderful cards I received for my Birthday and Christmas. I will not describe the materials used in these 2 cards because is a long post but is you have any question, please feel free to ask me. :))

Today I spent half of my day taking off the Christmas decoration because last year it took me almost a month :)) Here is a picture of part of my living room. ( I don't know why the sofa and the accessories look black, the real color is chocolate brown and the rest of the colors are beige, toasted orange and blue) . Even my little Lara appears on one corner of the picture with a toy in her bed. :)) I'm looking for new tables to match with my sofa and love seat but didn't find anything that catch my eyes yet, so in the meantime I have these little dark brown tables..

And changing of gears... my dear friend Heike gave me this wonderful award and I want to post it right away.. The first award of this year!!! Thank you so much sweetie, you made my day!!!

Thank you so much for the award Lim you are so sweet. And the cards you have made are so beautiful-love the details and the colors.
And I also love your home-you have a beautiful home Lim. We have taken down all the christmas decoration yesterday and the house felt so strange! But it is also very nice to put it away.

Adorable cards, Lim ~~~ you always do fabulous work. For some reason I can't subscribe to your feed, usually I can just click on that little orange button on the toolbar, then I'm notified when a blog is updated. Guess I'll just have to check back every day, lol!! Thanks for the inspiration!
