Kick off the New Year with a Thank you

Good morning and a Very Happy New Year - hope 2011 will be a good one for you - at the end of this post I will share some news with you as to why it should be a great one for me!!!
Wow did we have some entries to our last challenge at Allsorts - thank you to everyone that supported us for that one and all the others in 2010.
So here we are - the first of the month and the first of the New Year and our new challenge this week is
and I'm sure that like me you too will have plenty to be thankful for at this time of year not least of all I would like to say a great big THANK YOU to all of  you for your support and friendship throughout 2010.

I have used one of my new Hanglar & Stanglar images - isn't she a cutie?
Image coloured with PM's
I'm not sure where the rose design paper came from - other than my paper box - sorry!! but the other DP is Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage
This also used:
Martha Stewart PATP - Scroll Lace
Nestie - Lacey Circle
Sentiment - Creative Expressions
Organza Ribbon from stash
Adhesive gems - Papermania

Challenges I would like to enter are:

Cupcake Crafts - Thank You
Papertake Weekly - Thank You
Cute Card Thursday - Thank You
Colour Create - Pink Red & White
Winter Wonderland - Thank You

So at the start of this post I said I would share some news as to why 2011 should be a great year for me and here it is

I am going to be a GRANDMA - twice over!!!!
My middle son Aaron and his girlfriend Kerry will be having my first Grandson in April and my eldest son Jamie and Katie will have their baby (sex not known yet lol!!) the following month!
On top of all this excitement my DH turns 50 in March and my youngest son Jack will become a teenager (for real) in September!
I am sooooooooooo looking forward to 2011 already.

Thanks for popping by.
Catch up with you all soon.

Oh wow many celebrations will be kicking off in your house this year Debs! To grandbabies in one year, wow that will be totally amazing, lucky you!

Stunning card, as always and a good idea for a challenge. I remember when I had to sit at the table and write Thank Yous to all of my aunties that had sent me xmas presents and I remember better, the woohaa I got from my girls when I used to get them to do the same!!
