It's my first blog birthday today!!!

Hello lovely blog friends!

I'm very excited to say that I started my blog a year ago today.... and thanks to you super-kind people I now have over 100  fabulous followers!  Thank you so much to everyone who visits my blog and to those of you who leave me such encouraging and friendly comments, I really have appreciated every one of them.
I must also say a massive thank you to both Ryn Tanaka (Designs by Ryn!) and Eileen Godwin for encouraging me to start blogging and for inviting me to my first two design teams, big hugs ladies!

It has been a whirl-wind year, in that time I have been invited to join 4 Design Teams (Lavinia Stamps, Designs by Ryn, Rhedd and Rosie and Crafty Hands), and I can't quite believe it!  I'm so glad you all like to look at my 'crafty efforts', so here's a month-by-month look back at just a few of my favourite makes.....

I hope you've enjoyed that little look back through my year of stamping!  As you can see, most of my designs use the fabulous stamps from Designs by Ryn or Lavinia, I'm so lucky to be on the design teams of my favourite stamp companies!!  
I'm entering this post in the Make it Monday challenge.
Huge hugs and thanks again for all your support, I hope you will leave me a comment, you know I love to read them! ;) xxxxxx

I am so excited to have been introduced to your beautiful work. Your cards are some of the best I have seen. I was so amazed by Ryn's stamps as well. I live in the US and get very little exposure to artists outside the country. Being Canadian I belong to Paper Crafter's Library, looking for Canadian content and that's where I discovered you. I am soooo excited..
