Happy New Year!

Hello everyone!  Happy New Year!  Did you stay up until midnight to see 2012 come in?  I did, which amazed me, because I did not feel well yesterday.  We were supposed to have company in the afternoon, and had been invited to a friend's house for the evening, but we dropped both plans because of me.  :o(

Today is a new day, though, and a new year.  I want to say thank you to all of you who subscribe to my blog, are a Follower, or who just pop by now and then.  Your kind comments add sparkle to my days, and make me so happy.   :o)  When my daughter was sick with anorexia last year, and I was having my surgery, your prayers and positive thoughts truly, truly helped get me by.

I continue to be amazed by the boundless kindness and warmth this online crafting community offers. Each and every one of you is so special!

I've been visiting several blogs today, and see that folks are showing their favorite creations for the past year.  It's a fun feature that I enjoy. I'd like to show mine, too!

Here they are, in no particular order except for the first one:  my absolute fave! (click on the captions beneath the photos to go to the original posts)
Artful Frame
Thistles
Embossed Nature
Celebrating My Daughter
CAS Butterfly
'God Is Our Refuge'
Inspired by Rosy Gloves
Kindness In Pink
Single Snowflake
Christmas Tulips
Viva La Verve - Sketch #3
I went back as far as August to choose some favorites to show.  I'm sure there are others, but these will do!

I found out this morning that the two cards below were chosen by crafters at Splitcoast as FAVORITES:  The Best of 2011.  What a complete honor!

Baby Blossoms
Inspired by a Poppy
Cheers to all of you, and here's to a fabulous 2012!!

Oh, goodness, it would be hard to narrow it down from among your plentiful gorgeous cards! I have to say, though, that you picked some of my faves, too. The first and last and, oh, that simple thistle card, and the red roses on black and white, and, gosh, the tulips, and, and, and... Happy new year, Colleen!

They are fabulous, Colleen. I can see why your favorite of all is the first one. Outstanding!!! And, those tulips are one of my favorites as they are my favorite flower and you did a fabulous job with them.

Let me tell you my New Year's Eve was nothing to write home about. I was in bed and propped up on pillows watching NCIS..didn't even watch the ball drop. Yawnnn.........
