Pretty in Pink… Monday, Jan 12 2015 

As you’ve probably noticed by now, my start to 2015 has been a little delayed. I wish I could say that’s because I’ve been having a wonderful holiday, but this time it has been a bit more of an enforced rest. I’ve been suffering from a pinched nerve in my back and have been unable to sit at the computer or my desk for more than 5 minutes at a time. After a lot of anti inflammatories, strong pain relief, massage and acupuncture I’m feeling a little like a pin cushion but the nerve is slowly healing. There’s no quick fix for these things so I may not get time to comment on all of your lovely blogs for a few weeks yet but I will be back in the swing of things soon. I’d like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2015.

My creation today is for the Challenge over at LHOSM  this time the theme is Anything Goes. I’ve chosen some sweet Magnolia stamps and created this pretty gift basket:
