New Year and a New card for LIM 47

Hi there folks,
I'm sitting here chewing on a chocolate, I know it cannot last and thank heavens it can't  because if it did I'd be in trouble, no teeth and challenged widthwise but it's lovely today :0) and I'm enjoying it whilst I can. Are you still surrounded by temptation? Oh it's not easy eh!!!! I've been crafting today, it's great to get back in the saddle, I've made a card for LIM 47

Our final challenge for 2011 is 
JUST ONE WORD
Whatever type of clean and simple card you make, the sentiment must consist of simply one word. 
I guess our card to you would merely say "Thanks ". There are lots of sentiments where a single word can say it all... Enjoy, Welcome, Peace, Joy, Birthday, Sympathy, Love, Thanks etc..


So this is fun a stamp by Impression Obsession, sentiment by Waltzingmouse and the splatter is the master himself, Tim Holtz!
Happy New Year to you all, Gay xxx
