It's Here!

It is hard to believe, but 2015 is here!  Therefore, along with my artwork, I'm offering a toast to the world.  May we find hope, peace, joy, prosperity and above all love, so that we may enjoy a zeal for life in each other's company.

That card is just lovely. The AJ page too, and your DDs centrepiece is lovely. Our table tends to be too small and full of food for anythig that grand but it really does make it look so very festive.

Happy First WOYWW of 2015!
