CD Sunday - 'Something New' - chosen by Pauline

Happy New Year to one and all.  If you have attended celebrations I hope that no heads are banging.

'Something New' is a good choice for the first challenge of our new year. There can be many new somethings.

I have chosen a few with my team contribution:
The CD I have used is by Robert Addams - Nautica.  Not a new CD as such but the background is from the CD and is one I have not used before.  The stitch pattern - 'Tall Ships' - is a new one to me. In fact I bought it for this very card.  The sails are stitched with a particular thread that I have not used before and the die I used for the sentiment is not new but this is the first time I have used it.

Does everyone keep those New Year resolutions that we seem to make so easily.  I sometimes think that I should make some and then don't bother or can't be bothered.  But this year I really want to start making my Christmas cards earlier and use my ever growing pile of groovi plates so perhaps I can combine the two.  So here is hoping that I can manage to keep my resolutions and that you can keep yours.
I look forward to another happy year of crafting, receiving visits on here and making visits elsewhere.  What a wonderful thing the WWW is.
