Out With The Old & In With The New!


Wow! Where as the time gone?  I look back on this year and have to honestly say that it has been a difficult year. With having surgery in May and then dealing with other medical issues, I am even surprised with myself that I actually got to make a few cards.  I haven't scrapbooked in a very long time and felt somewhat sad about not getting our memories into an album.  But this year saw my creativity turn to the cardmaking side of the hobby.  I am so glad that it did!  I have always loved getting and giving cards, but this year has taken on an whole new meaning. To see the love and joy on a person's face when they get that handmade card is priceless.  It feels amazing to brighten someones day.  The other thing that really overwhelms me is the love and support I have received from bloggers like yourselves. Wow! I have made some pretty amazing friends along the way and have been inspired beyond measure. The thing that stands out the most this year, is that even though times have been tough, I can now look back at it all and be in wonder of how everything worked out and how our family is stronger and better because of it. God is so good! 

I want to take this time to thank all of you who follow and visit from time to time.  I have loved reading your ever supportive comments and answering your questions.  "Reliving Tomorrow" was suppose to have different features this year past, but that didn't take place either.  That will change this year! I will be having some special features, along with some Special Guest. I am so excited, but I will share more later.  Also, I just celebrated a birthday on Dec.16th and my hubby will be celebrating tomorrow. So check back in tomorrow to have a chance to win some American Crafts scrapbooking products.  There will be a twist of course! Be sure to check back.  I also have some Guest Design Team work coming up, so be sure to check in for that as well.

In honour of 2010 and the Joy of Cardmaking, here is a review of some of my cards in no particular order that are my favorites. Wishing you much love, peace, & joy this year!

I remember your jack and the beanstock card. that was my introduction to Mo images. Hard to believe it was only last May!! Time flies.
I truly hope that you and yours get some relief this year from health issues.
Thanks for your sweetness!
