New year with some new beginnings ... and meet Jasper!

Hi everyone!

Wow - what a crazy year 2014 was!  So many things happened, a pretty significant one being we moved from Canada to the USA!  We are currently residing in the town of Tewksbury, north of Boston, Massachusetts!  It has been a big move which has taken some time for us all to settle into.  My eldest son has found it the hardest but we are all adjusting.  One of the hardest things for me is I now don't have my craft room :(  I have been relegated down to a mere crafting desk BUT I am grateful for at least having a permanent design space!  We moved from a big house to a 3 bed apartment (the move is supposed to be a temporary 2 year thing)!  So, we all have had to make sacrifices and my crafting space has been mine!

We have also introduced a beautiful puppy into our lives!  Jasper is a delightful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and he brings us so much love & joy but keeps me extremely busy!  My days are spent with him as I am unable to work here in the US. 

I am making a commitment in 2015 to do more crafting and promoting of my work.  I have started a Facebook page  so please feel free to pop over and "like" it and friend me too if you feel so inclined!!!!  :)

So, without further ado, here is a birthday card that I have made using the beautiful LOTV image and coloured with distress inks.  Pretty simple design and lovely papers from MME Hootenanny pad.  The sentiment stamp is Verve.

Please note I have changed my blog name to Delightful Designs by Danielle.  

Thank you all for visiting me today - I truly appreciate it.  I am off to now do some major blog post catch ups with all my favourite bloggers!

Now that I am back keep an eye out, I may just be posting some fun candy as a welcome back!!

Have a wonderful day!

Danielle xx
