As we say Au Revior to 2012 and Bonjour to Bon chance 2013, I think it's always great to say thanks and look back at what you've achieved. No different for my blog, so here's 12 of my personal favourite creations.

looking back over the 12 months of creating I'm pretty proud to see how I'm getting more confident with my own style :-)
here's a great 2013!  for us all.

Vintage Milliner Miss

I hope you've all had a lovely christmas, for me it was great to grab a craft time today and create something non- Christmas and completely for fun- I reached for the Rogue Redhead Designs Milliner Misses stamp set. I love this set it's so elegant and vintage.

Parisian Winter

I'm sure you know the feeling of getting an idea for a card, and just having to run to your craft desk to create it? Well that's how it was for me and this card. I've taken some artistic licence and popped the Effiel Tower in a park edged by trees- and of course a snowy day.

Stamps used are from Stampin' Up! and Kaisercraft.
All Cardstock is Stampin' Up!

Dies used from Spellbinders and Tim Holtz.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Just Add Ink- Christmas Cards

Craft A Scene- A Winter scene

Wishing you all a fab week in the lead up to Christmas.
