Party Time

Hello everyone,

My last card for 2011, I can’t believe how quickly this year came to an end.  I have such lovely memories of 2011 – meeting new friends, cherish old friendships, caring, sharing, laughing and crying with family and loved ones. But as 2012 approaches I am looking forward to what the New Year will hold and I am sure it will be better with many wonderful moments. My wish to all my blog friends is that you may find joy and happiness in the coming year with many enriching  days and meaningful moments. To celebrate I chose this adorable image from Penny Black with the cute mice dancing and making music into the New Year.

Challenges:

 

A music note on the inside
