A Year of Reflection...

Hi everyone... Can you believe we are coming to the end of another year. I am amazed at where the time has gone, it seems to have flown by in the blink of an eye.
2012 was a year of  mostly good and a small amount of not so good times.
My son Ryan moved even further away to live in the NT- Ayers Rock and  my Friend Sally moved away to live in Moe, Melbourne.
It also was the year I became a Nanna once again to a beautiful Granddaughter "Shevy " little sister for my adorable Grandson Ayce.
Work was an interesting year, had lots of FUN creating with a gorgeous group of Girls on Saturday mornings..spent way to much on crafty goodies...experimented with different Art Mediums and health wise was good- no problems... so all in all 2012 was Ok I guess, lol...

I would also like to take this time to wish everyone a A fabulous New Year and that "2013"brings you all Happiness and Great times.
 Also a very big Thank you all my followers who pop over. I know like myself that we don't always get to leave comments as we are all so busy but I do appreciate you popping by for a looksee when you can.
Take care and Keep Safe, xxx
Ok now Kellie over at  Give a Girl a Blog has asked us to reflect and choose our top 10 cards...
....mmm Ok, so I did 11!
So here goes.
I have a collection of images from La-La Land Crafts, Magnolia and The Octopode Factory.

Found a BIG Love/ Addiction  for Memory Box Dies....

Found that Distress Inks and Post it Notes make for some great backgrounds.

Love how that using Copic Markers, Distress Inks and  Paint  creates great scenes.

a New found LOVE- "Sons of Anarchy" TV show so had to make a card. This is Jaxs.....

 Tried my hand at Copic Colouring with no Dark stamp Lines.


Found a new crafty goody called  "Washi Tape"

 This was for my son Ryan living in the Far Outback of Australia...

re- Found my Alcohol Inks and Glassine paper- Thanks Tim Holtz

Found I love creating cards with just Dies and Distress Inks....

.....just because I love the bright colours of this one!

 and this one... because this just sums it up nicely, lol....
