Review of 2015 (part one)


Well it is the end of 2015, not a time of year I enjoy. I tend to find it makes me a little melancholy, thinking about the year that has passed away and a slight fear of the unknown for 2016. As I get older I seem to lose my optimism for the future. People seem these days to be so self absorbed and self obsessed, uncaring and unkind to their fellow man. Maybe it is just these rose tinted spectacles I am wearing but the past seems a friendlier time. I must brush off these maudlin thoughts, pull up my big girl knickers and push on.

As 2015 is leaving us I decided to do a little review of my crafty year. It has been an exciting one, full of crafty milestones. I was asked to be a guest designer on the Penny Black and More challenge twice and invited to join not one but 3 design teams. My proudest moment was seeing my cards on the TV - such a thrill.
Once I started looking through my blogs I discovered so much I want to show you so I have decided to split this post into 2 parts. So here goes with part 1 - 



My first guest designer card for Penny Black and more

(two this month, couldn't decide which one I prefered)
My first card for the Winter Wonderland challenge blog

(Another two. Very indecisive at the moment)

I have chosen this card because of the challenge it created. It had to be coloured with Spectrum Aquas and had lots of very small areas. It took me ages but was well worth the effort I felt.

Well we have reached the half way point. I will post more of my favourites hopefully tomorrow.

Take care and enjoy your celebrations however you choose to celebrate.
See you in 2016!!

  1. Hi Lesley all your cards are stunning. It is good to look back but the future does beckon. I hope 2016 is kind to you. I have had a mini review of the year as well. Happy New Year. Hugs Jackie
