Top Twelve Cards of 2018

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your year been? We have had ups and downs much like everyone I suspect. As we reach the end of the year I would like to share some of my favourite cards  that I have made.  I went through my photos and picked a card for each month. When I made them is not necessarily when they were blogged. 


I wish I could remember who this beautiful image is from. 

This was a twist and pop card. I used the Sailing Boat Stained Glass  die from Creative Expressions. My Father-in-law loved it and still has it on display. 


There was an appeal to make 18th Birthday cards and I responded. This has been one of my most popular posts of the year. 


This is my favourite image by Pollyanna Pickering she is sadly missed. 


I was asked to make a card for a Baby Shower. I found the design for this tri-shutter card on the internet. It is a great design for using all those small dies; I even used a craft knife to cut the slits. 


I won this die in the Kerst/Christmas group on Facebook. It is such a beautiful die I was thrilled. 


I made this card with lots of dies from the John Next Door range. 


More dies from the John Next Door range. This card was to congratulate our daughter who got a new job. 


I was asked by the mother of the groom  to make a wedding card for a couple getting married in October. This is the card that I made for me to give them. 


I treated myself to the Deer Scenes and the Snow Scenes dies from John Next Door. I found a tutorial for a Z-fold card and I was away. 


I have been visiting Winchester regularly since the beginning of November. They have a very nice shop called C&H Fabrics which has a craft department. On day when I was there they had 20% off everything and I treated myself to some Sizzix dies/ I have used them a lot.  


When I got to December I found that I was very short of cards. This one was made from scraps that I had die cut but not got round to using. 

I have enjoyed looking back through my cards. In a lot of ways this year has been tough. There have been some good times too. 

I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year and very blessing for 2019.

Happy Crafting
