I hope you all had a really great Christmas - I had a nice, quiet family Christmas with lots of lovely pressies. The snow has meant that I haven't ventured too far from home; fortunately it has started to melt today, which is a good job as it is back to work tomorrow for me!
I can't do any crafting at the moment, my craft table (AKA dining table) is having to be used as a proper dining table over the Christmas holiday so I decided to look through my blog and pick out my favourite projects from the past 12 months. I would like to thank everyone who has visited my blog and a big thank you to my lovely followers too. So, here goes, as we say Bye Bye to 2010 ....
This tiny bear that I made is almost my favourite one so far, but not quite. I won't be parting with this one for the forseeable future.
Pollycraft digi images are amongst my favourites and I just like the bright, fresh colours on this Easter card. Oh no, I can't believe we'll be making Easter cards in just a few weeks!!!
This panda is definitely my favourite teddy bear that I have made. She is about 6 inches tall and is even prettier in real life and she won't be leaving my collection, ever!
I love this Whiff of Joy rubber stamp with a plate full of warm cookies, plus it is purple and has some lovely glitter paper on too.
Same stamp as April's favourite card. I did say that I loved that stamp!
June was a great month for me - my family went on our first cruise around the Mediterranean and loved every minute. I was also asked to be a DT member for the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog and this was my first card. I don't really make many male cards but I did like this one - the beer monster image is by Pollycraft. I'm sure that we all know a Beer Monster, or two!
I fell in love with Magnolia's Tilda stamps earlier this year and this one is still one of the favourites in my collection.
I didn't get too much crafting done in August because this was the month that I had corrective laser surgery on my eyes - the best thing I ever did and I only wish that I'd have plucked up the courage to have it done sooner! For August's favourite it was almost a Tilda Christmas card, but this one just beat it. I really like this fairy digi, which is from Pollycraft, I like the natural colours an the slightly vintage style paper by My Mind's Eye.
Another Tilda card for September's favourite. The scallop circle cards were a challenge prize from Die Cut Dreams and I must find them out to make some more round cards.
It is another of my hand made teddy bears for October's favourite. It is made from a lovely soft mohair and, at 10" tall, is one of the larger bears that I have made.
My cousin got married in November and this is the card that I made for her. Lili of the. Valley are amongst my favourite stamps and I also love the circular date stamps by Cat's Life Press.
Shame on me - I've just noticed how little I've have posted in December. I'm sure so many of you are in the same position though - spending weeks getting ready for Christmas.
Anyway, here's December's favourite - my DT card for the current Craft Your Days away challenge. I've recently discovered Pink Gem stamps and this reindeer image is a real cutie!
So, that's my review of my blogging year. I am going to have a look at some of your blogs now and try and catch up with what everyone has been up to. I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and look forward to another year of crafty blogging!
Thanks for looking,
