Happy Blogaversary To Me!

My first year anniversary of blogging is fast approaching.  I can't believe it's been one year!  I can't imagine life without it.  When I was young, I always kept diaries and journals.  These days, blogging takes the place of them, and I get to combine it with showing off my artwork.  I do think of cardmaking as an art form, although my children beg to differ.  :)  They do not agree that it can be considered art!

To celebrate, I will be featuring some of my favorite cards from the past year.  At the end of this Trip Down Memory Lane, I'll be offering some Blog Candy

Today I am looking back at May, June and July 2010.  If you want to see an original post, just click on the photo.















I sure was punch-happy those months!
Soon I'll have another post with more faves from my past.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Happy Blogaversary :) I have been following your blog for quite some time now and I really should pull my finger out and set up my own blog-I keep putting it off! However, your anniversary, and seeing all your favourite and wonderful designs has inspired me to get my blog sorted out!
I look forward to seeing all your fabulous artwork in the coming year :)

Isn't blogging fun? I'm glad I found it too, as for your gorgeous cards, how could anyone not consider them art? Happy Blogging Anniversary. :)

I like how you embossed the butterflies b/4 adding them to your card.
