Happy New Year ! Crafty Catz Challenge #115

Happy New Year everyone.  Sorry it is very late, I hope everyone is having a good year so far and that Santa brought you lots of crafty bits and bobs.  I was a terrible blogger last year and my new year resolution was to be a better one this year so hopefully this will be the first of lots of cards this year.  We have a new challenge started today over at Crafty Catz and the theme as set by the lovely Auntie Sue is to use 'something new'.  Well to get me back in the card making mood I had to have a little shop at The Glitter Pot and as I have always admired the Hero Arts stamps but never been brave enough to try them as they are not my usual style thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give them a go.  I love this stamp, it is called Newspaper Tulip and I think you could use it for many different occasions and I loved using it too, I am going to be buying some more soon and maybe a few different coloured ink pads too.  I hope you like my card, it is different to what I normally do, my hubbie wasn't convinced he said it was too plain but I am open to any comments good or bad.
Lastly I have a photo to share with you all of myself and my beautiful little girl Grayce.  This was taken just before Christmas and I love it.  I never have photos taken but I have been on Weight Watchers for 12 months now and I am proud to say have lost 4 stone and only have 8 pounds to go :) and now I finally feel happy enough for photos so this is a big moment for me.
Thanks for visiting me today it makes my day knowing you have called by.
