2022 - Cards in Review


I thought I would once again review my cards for the year - although I have blogged more than over the past few years, I also had great 'gaps' in my card making, and times when I was using others supplies... 
All the cards are linked to the post they were first shown in

This was the part of the time I was staying with my friend and using some of her supplies

Needless to say there were months where I could have chosen more than one card.. and months when those cards were not florals, which seem to be dominating this review.

Thank you for visiting once more, and may 2023 bring you lots of joy, hope and love.

Dear Maxine, you make such beautiful cards and I am sure they must each give much pleasure to the recipients.
I hope 2023 will be a blessed and happy year for yourself and your family :)

A fabulous selection Maxine but isn't it a difficult task choosing, mine is tomorrow and I'm still not certain on them all.

A beautiful selection of cards, Maxine. A great mix of feminine and masculine cards! Hard to choose a favorite but think it might be the June card as I LOVE blue and brown! So nice to see you linked up at the year in review hop too!
