2009 in Cards

Morning folks.....yes we are fast approaching a new year and while I was tidying out some files on the computer and saving lots of pics to disks ready for all those scrapbooks I am meaning to do when I get a spare day or two....wishful thinking I fear......I thought it might be fun to post some of my favourite cards from for each month.

Edited to answer Jose's question...the stamp used in January and March is Penny Black "Whispers"  3377K      Have had lots of e-mails asking about the stamps I used on these cards....have now added the info to each card.


  1. WOW! just gorgeous love them all but would love to know what the stamp is you used for January and March. I love all your cards, but as soon as I saw Januarys card, I thought I hope that stamp is still on sale.
    Huggs Jose

  2. Hi Kath

    Thanks for sharing these gorgeous creations. Lots of flowery ones. I do love your style hun. Great idea as well although I haven't been going for a year yet i will have a look at mine.

    Hugs Ali x

    PS Happy New Year to you and your family

  3. Hi Kath,
    It's lovely to see all these gorgeous cards. I adore the PB flowers. Like Jose above, I think I will be buying the stamp you used in Jan and Feb.
    Hugs, Clare x

  4. Stunning cards Kath! You are so talented and have a good eye for colour too! You put me to shame! Its been a while since I made some cards and enjoyed it. Ever since I lost my dog to cancer my mojo has vanished. Like your Buddy, he used to sleep under my desk when I made my cards. We now have a new black labrador puppy, Martha! Bit of handful at the moment so even if I fancied making some cards she won't let me! Anyway, I enjoy following your blog and look forward to your stunning creations in the new year! Hopefully I will be inspired to get making too!

  5. Wow - Kath these are lovely - its great to see your inate style pushing its way through all the cards....amazing since the cards are so different!

    Havent got a year's worth of cards yet, but may have to do Sept-Dec!

  6. ...and every one a stunner. you would think you were addicted to PB and Hero Arts lol. Have a super day.

  7. Oh these are gorgeous Kath, it must give you a real buzz to look back at your beautiful creations, it certainly gave me one!
    Thanks for sharing them.

  8. Wonderful cards as always Kath. I especially like January. xxx Carol

  9. OMG Kath a year in your cards - what a great idea. They are all fabulous and good to look back on. I am suffering seriously like Sarah above - since I lost the cats I just don't seem to be getting on with anything crafty! The only cards I have posted are the one's I had finished in advance. This might just be the medicine to get me 'going' again! Here's hoping lol.

    Love Lynda xxx

  10. Don't they all look fabulous Kath.
    I really like your style and I too hope I can still find that PB stamp! The Dec. stamp is still on my list too....... tfs
    Hugs & best wishes for 2010.

  18. Dear Kath
    Thanks so much for sharing all your lovely cards.You might be interested to note that I did get something crafty for Christmas -a Hobbycrafts voucher and I spent all day on Christmas day in my PJ's with my lovely husband. We just lozzed out after "doing" christmas the day before at my son's house.Think it's been one of my best chrissies ever!Love Betty
    Will be interested to see your New Year resolutions too.

  19. Hi Kath, thanks for this great idea. All your cards are lovely. I have really enjoyed going back through my old cards, we should really do this more often but once posted I don't tend to go back to them. Take a look at my list if you get the time. Best wishes Debs xx

  20. I really love your cards, they are beautiful! I am looking for 2010 to see what beautiful cards you will make!

  21. Stunning Creations Kath.

    Thanks for asking us to do the same with our 2009 recap. Really enjoyed looking back and gave me some inspiration for 2010.

  32. Hi Kath, gorgeous set of cards, so beautiful. I have uploaded my 12 cards, would love for you to pop by and let me know what you think x

  33. Just gorgeous, all of them, and I never missed a one! :o) Hard to choose (not that you asked, lol!), but January and December are probably my faves.

    Great idea, doing a round up of your twelve favourites for the year. I'll join in when I can grab a few mins on my own.

    Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas 'chez Kath' (and pleased to hear you survived the near bus-collision was just reading about in the post upstairs!).

    Chris xx

  34. I love your style, Kath! Couldn't choose my favorite, but I'm so glad you posted these now.......your cards are all so inspirational!! Happy New Year!

  35. morning kath, wow what a treat, not 1 but 12 cards.your style really is fantastic and i love that penny black stamp.i love them all.luv coops.xx

  36. I love every single one, you have fantastic style

  37. Hi, I'm Debbie, and I just joined your blog. I learned about you from Enfys, and I really liked your idea about showing your favorite cards. As you can see from my blog, I haven't been doing cards this way that long, but I feel I've learned much from ones like Enfys, and ones with talent similar to yours. Your cards are awesome! I really like the ones done with the Whispers stamp, and will have to order that one now. I'm also interested in some of the Hero Arts things, too. I think my favorite is January, but all of them are fantastic.

    I hope you will look at mine, but realize I haven't arrived to your level yet. My list is here.



  38. Hi, again, Kath.. Got around to doing mine. They're HERE

    Thanks again for a brill idea!

    Chris xx

  39. Your cards are always wonderful Kath. Thanks for sharing 2009 with us and I can not wait to see the 2010 makes. Happy New Year. Kim
