Review of 2015

Happy Boxing day,

I hope Father Christmas brought you all the gifts you wanted and that you all had a fabulous Christmas!  Normally I run a review of the year over 12 days however with so much left to show and so much new stuff happening I don't have 12 days to do this.  I thought therefore that between Christmas and new year I would have 4 days to review the year using the next four days.  There is one card which is my favourite form each month along with a link to the original post should you want more details.

Lets kick this off with January...

A simple card but to me a favourite as it has a classical look.

Next is February and a rhapsody in Teal and coconut white

For March I had to choose one of my samples form my first ever release of stamps, I think I was so excited that I didn't do them justice however this card was one on my faves from the samples I made!

More Tomorrow,

  12. 3 great cards but my favourite is the first one.


  13. Morning John and a happy Boxing Day to you. I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas Day, I spent mine with my youngest son, had a fantastic lunch then back home to sit and watch Downton Abbey, yes I love it and am so disappointed that it has finished completely, I hope they reconsider the decision and bring it back.

    Now to these gorgeous cards, yes they all are gorgeous, I think my favourite out of these is the first one, it seems to have such a smoothness about it, - this is not to say that the others are not just as good, well you know what I I am waffling again, is it my age I ask myself......

    Just to let you know I may be late for the next week with your blog as I am away on holiday and not sure of the reception, but believe me I will check in every day if I can, if not then I have a lot to look forward to when I return.

    Have a great Boxing Day whatever you are doing, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
