Review of the Year...

Happy Saturday,

As my long term blog family know at Christmas I like to do my own version of the 12 days of Christmas, that is a review of the year!  As I post every day then since the first of january I have posted over 300 different cards and creations this is my chance to showcase some of my favourites form each month.  I have also been told that this is a great way for people who have recently stumbled onto my blog to see what has gone before.

The way this will work is that for the next 12 days I will highlight My 3 favourite projects from a specific month, starting today with Januray and...well I'm sure you understand the rest lol  There will be the odd new thing or different thing thrown in so keep your eyes peeled.

Back to today and january...


  1. Hi John,

    Have a great day!

  14. Hi John,
    what a good idea - the review of 2014. My favourite is the second pic of the "most popular posts" - the gatefold card. It's a stunner.
    All 3 posts today are beautiful and very different. When I get some time over Xmas LOL I'l have a trawl round your cards from Jan/Feb etc.
    Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.
    HAGD, Rose
