Cute Card Thursday - Open Theme

It's an "Open theme" over on Cute Card Thursday so this little card is just perfect for this challenge. I have used Rope Swing by Elizabeth Bell for this card. I stamped her and then masked her and stamped the cuddlybuddly frame over her, I did extend the rope slightly. DP are DCWV. Well I can't believe we are at the end of 2008 this year has just flown in. It's been a funny year for me ups and downs to say the least. My Dad will be getting his Triple by-pass next year which I just know he will be a new man with lots of avenues opening for him, a new Grandson due in March. I also have some other exciting news but my lips are sealed for the moment nothing craft related but exciting! so for me bring on 2009. I get very emotional at New Year so I'm away before I start blubbin again lol.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your lovely comments you leave me, i have made fabulous bloggy buddies this year. Special ones were there for me through some hard times and encouraged me to start my new blog up, Thank you. You are the best and you know who you are.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year when it comes, Health, Wealth and Happiness to each and everyone of you. Heres to 2009!
