Happy New Year!!! And a Gatefold Card

Hi all!!! A big Happy New Year to you!!! I was planning on making a post yesterday and taking a tour to my blogging friends, but I’ve been down with the flu and spent most of the day in bed or playing a game with the boy. Missed out on the celebration on New Years Eve but we had a really good dinner just the family instead and except for the flu, it was really nice. I had an excellent excuse to take a deep slurp of Laphroaig… :)

Over to my card – finally…

Life 1

It’s a gatefold card, using the Timeless Amour dies and stamps, Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. I love these pastel colors and subtle patterns of the paper from the Vintage Floret Paper Collection!
