First card of the year

Happy New Year to you all, hope I'm not too late, well it is still January!!! Hopefully this is my return to blogland after a rather long break. I'm really sorry that I have been absent but my job moved and I'm really not coping with the travelling. I try to get one journey a day in the day light which means I have to leave really early to be able to leave early if you know what I mean!!! Anyway enough of me, here's my first card for blogland this year, now I've uploaded it, it looks a bit depressing, mind you I have had a bit of a black day!! Promise the next one will be bright and cheerful!! I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday which was a Card Buffet, I have chosen Paper, 3 Gems, 3 buttons and twine, mine is string because the twine is in the greenhouse and I don't like the dark!!!
Saturday Challenge which is With Love
Cutie Sunday which is Black/Grey and one other, mine is white
Cute Card Thursday which is Monochrome

Hope you like it

I just thought I would like to show you my lovely Christmas pressie from my good friend Wendy. This lovely tote which my Copic Pens fit perfectly into. As you can see I still have loads of room left for lots more pens, yes I still have lots more to get and I need them all, like we need shoes!!!

Wendy has these available at Stamps and Memories
if you are tempted.

That's all for tonight folks, back soon
