The Last Post (of the year!)

Happy New Year's Eve! Today is one of those funny days where you can regret those resolutions you made a year ago but never kept (probably being on top of the ironing for me!) or get your resolutions ready to promise for tomorrow. For me I'm not making any this year - mainly because I  don't want to make one only to feel bad when I break it in February (!) but I'd love to know if you are making one! 
I haven't had much time to get into the Studio but in a few snatched sessions I wanted to make something for the few challenges that are around. I feel like I haven't entered a challenge in ages and they are such fun to do! So I made this little hanging. For Grungy Monday Linda asked for Tim's Tissue Wrap and/or Tissue Tape (double tick!), Hels asked for anything we fancy for Sunday Stamper (tick!) and finally Simon Says Stamp and Show asked for a 12 Tags of Christmas inspired Tag - I know this isn't actually a tag but I'm hoping they'll be in the Christmas spirit and let me off (I used Tag 1 as my inspiration btw!) The stamps are all Wendy Vecchi designed and were given to me by Santa who has fabulous taste! 
Have a wonderful New Year's Eve - we're spending it with friends and seeing if the children can stay awake until midnight - 5p says they won't!!!
