2011 in Cards

Morning folks..hope you all had a lovely happy and fun Christmas with your loved ones...that Santa popped down your chimney with lots of gorgeous presents and unlike me you didn't stuff yourself silly with food...I do it every year and now feel like a beached whale...it hasn't quite sunk in yet that it has been and gone for another year and in a few days time we will be celebrating a new year. 
Time for what is becoming an annual tradition in the cubbyhole...yes my favourite cards from 2011..started off in 2009 with just one card per month but it's grown wings...apologies for the mega photo fest because I couldn't choose one favourite...indecisiveness is becoming my middle name...time to grab a cuppa and a comfy sofa...






and you'll notice that from July onwards I was in a Christmas mood...






So why don't you join in the fun...leave me a comment here with a link to your Favourite Cards of 2011...I would love to come and have a peek.  I'll be back tomorrow to play along at WOYWW and woohoo wait until you see what was in my parcel from Santa Mario...
Hugs Kath xxx

  5. Hi Kath, I love them all, one of which is displayed in my Craft room, I think maybe February was the highlight of our crafting year.

    I kept you company on the eating stakes - will have to get in touch with Aud to sign me up for her class again.

  18. That was a real delight - it's the flowers that I love too.
    The one that stands out for me just has to be your November red poppy card. I shall have a rummage amongst my posts & come back to you on that one. I have to say I was thrilled when I say Tim & Mario had picked you to receive one of those special parcels.
