Cardmaking Year in Review

As I've done in past years, I have a year in review of some of my favourite cards that I created in 2016. I can hardly believe how quickly this year has flown by! We made a lot of wonderful memories within our family these past 12 months, had a few 'personal bests' and bucket list items checked off, and let creativity shine throughout our home.

Here's my favourite family photo from this summer. Aren't we messy? I love it because we are not the 'pose pretty' kind of family, although I do have a few pictures from that day like that. Life is messy, we are silly, we love to have fun and get creative. I think it captures it all.

Favourite crafty moment from 2016?

Meeting this group of amazing women at the Stamping Away retreat in October.

In no particular order, here is a card that I love from each month of 2016.

This year I also started a series called Create Together. I was trying to encourage myself to blog more (because I like it, not because I feel like I have to), and knew if I collaborated with crafty friends I would do so. Fun challenges, no pressure, and encouraging each other to be creative.

Although I tried at first to do it once weekly, that changed by year's end and going forward in 2017 I hope to have a crafty guest every other week or so. If YOU would like to Create Together with me, send me an email (found on the top right under my profile picture). Don't be shy!

I'm looking forward to more cardmaking in 2017. Are you?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my home to yours. Thanks for stopping in. :)
