Crafty Catz #532- Optional Twist- Something New

 Well, here I am with my card for the last challenge of 2020 at Crafty Catz- we will be back in January. Aunty Sue is hosting this week- her theme is 'Something New, which is, as always, optional.

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is BUGABOO

I made a New Year card- featuring the fabulous JJ- that girl sure knows how to party- she's not bothered in the least that she's on her own, isolating, she's just delighted to see the back of 2020 and looking forward to a better year in 2021!

It's been another mixed week for me- on one hand bad news of family member either having or isolating because of the virus- including second eldest granddaughter (she's isolating - several children in her class have tested positive- fortunately none have any symptoms but that's how it spreads so easily in the schools.
On the other hand some close friends , who are in their eighties,  are getting the vaccine tomorrow.
Some good news for a change!

Don't forget to hop over to Crafty Catz to see what the ladies have been up to this week- and it would be lovely if you choose to join us for this last challenge of the year.
Thanks for visiting
have a good weekend
keep safe

I love your card Chris, this image reminds me so much of a friend, she really could have posed for this, haha.
Hope your family is ok, awful this, my youngest Grandson's nursery had to close for ten days because one of the little ones tested positive, scares me to death when its them and I know you feel the same, lets hope the vaccine is just the job.xx

A Brilliant card Chris. LOve your colours and design. I have that 'clock' somewhere lol. Not that time isn't going fast enough lol.
Let's hope this vaccine gets to us all early on in the year.
We are still in Tier 3 and have been for what seems ages.
Stay safe

A really super creation, great fun image and a lovely background with bright and beautiful colours for thee images.
Nor heard anything from our Doctors about the vaccine but we are a lot younger than your friends, just in our early 70's.Our Grandsons broke up on Wednesday so that is one less thing to worry about. Have a lovely weekend.
