That was 2009

I noticed a few people doing a post of their favourite cards from the year and thought I would do the same seeing as I have nothing to show you today AGAIN! Gosh, feels so wierd not posting cards after the many Christmas cards. I have four family birthdays coming up in the first two weeks of the year and I can't get motivated after my little Christmas break. I'm waiting for some special stamps so I'm hoping that will kick start my mojo! Anyway back to my "that was 2009". I only started my blog in April, it was funny looking back at my first posts when I knew noone was reading, feels silly typing to noone doesn't it LOL!

Two piccies for APRIL as I decided to show the exploding box I had made for my daughter's first birthday so here is the inside and outside.

MAY and I now have my beloved copics and getting to grips with them.......

JUNE, I just loved altering this jewellery box for the Just Magnolia monthly challenge!

JULY, this is a special card as firstly I made it for my Dad to give my Mum and secondly it won me a place as GD on the Whiff of Joy anniversary blog hop!

AUGUST, I mounted this card onto some matching pink ribbon and it now hangs in my daughter's bedroom along with two other matching cards.

SEPTEMBER, sorry two piccies again as I just couldn't decide between these two, they both won me a place as GD for Whiff of Joy, which I am absolutely loving doing as we speak until the end of January!

OCTOBER, this card I made for the Whiff of Joy challenge birthday blog hop which also happened to be on world cardmaking day.

NOVEMBER, another very special card as this was my first card as a DT member for Just Magnolia.

DECEMBER, it was extremely hard to pick a card from the mountain I made in December but I eventually decided upon this as I almost didn't give it to the lady I'd made it for as I loved it too much LOL! Well, I can honestly say it has been a truly amazing year for me. After purchasing my little Forever Friends card making kit at my local garden centre in February and coming online for help, I have started a blog and made friends with lots of wonderful like minded people. I have been so incredibly lucky to become a design team member for Whiff of Joy challenge, Just Magnolia challenge and Crafty Calendar challenge and am currently guest designing for Katharina at Whiff of Joy!!!!! Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such a year and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your encouragement and support throughout because I know I wouldn't have made it without you all so big hugs to you all!!!

and finally.........

H A P P Y N E W Y E A R!!!!!!!!!!!
