Happy New Year & Some Old Favourites

Hello peeps,
I am usually a party girl on New Years Eve but this year hubby & I are having a quiet night in as he's only just finished work & is working a long shift starting tomorrow morning & finishing Monday lunchtime, & I'm popping painkillers so no wine for me today, at least I won't have a hangover tomorrow lol.

I have a New Year card to share & of course I had to end the year by having my favourite girlie's on it.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Flowers - Prima, Kort & Godt, Wild Orchid & Magnolia
The film strip ribbon &Weathered Clock are both Tim Holtz and the frame I have edged by using a Friskars punch
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
TOMIC - Happy New Year
Sweet Stampin' - New beginnings

I am joining our lovely Debby again in sharing my 5 favourite cards of the year.
It's never easy deciding which I like best, some I look at & wonder what on earth I was thinking at the time as the card is blooming awful lol, & some I am happy with which is rare for me.
I've linked the title's to the original post if anybody wants a closer peek!

 I've made several non card creations too so decided I would also share my 5 favourite non card creation.

That's all from me peeps except to say thank you all so much for sharing this past year with me, for all your lovely comments and I wish you all a very
Happy New Year
