Emma Shoes

Happy New Year and I hope you've all enjoyed your celebrations whether you were having a good ol' knees up or a quiet evening in :-)  Let's hope that 2012 brings you everything that you wish for and more besides!

It's challenge time again over at Fussy and Fancy and this time we are celebrating our 2nd birthday and are giving you the option of either creating a birthday card or using an animal print on your cards.  Here's my card to give you some ideas and why not pop over and have look at the design team's cards for more inspiration too.
