Good morning, I hope everyone has had a good Christmas and been able to relax a little in the lull until New Year.
I decided to take part in Ellie's Year in Review which also gives me the opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support of my blog. It's been a tough year health wise and your visits and encouragement have meant so much and helped me through some difficult times.
However choosing which cards to share proved even more difficult than I anticipated. So in the end I tried to include something using favourite products and/or companies I am privileged to design for/represent which include Highlight Crafts/Two Red Robins, AALL and Create, Stamp Addicts, Oakwood and Stampendous.
I have also been fortunate to have a number of stamps sets released on Create and Craft this year which was exciting and several of those inspirational quotes are included on my shares today.
In keeping with Ellie's plans, I have a small prize to give away, a Spellbinders A Lotta Hearts die set....just in time for Valentines maybe! A winner will be randomly selected from the comments on this post.....
Here's my final selection from my 2022 posts and Create and Craft TV work for this year, I've not listed details of products used in each but please do mail me from the link on the sidebar if you would like any specific details....
There are twelve taking part and here's Ellie's full list with links to their blogs so you can check out everyone,
Thank you for popping in to take a peek and I wish you all a Happy and Crafty 2023.
Those leaving a comment on any post on this blog do so in the knowledge that their name and blog link are visible to all who visit this blog.

A fabulous selection of cards Brenda, but my favourite has to be the poppy card.
Brenda, your picks are great. I have two favorites...the purple coneflower one and the one that has a bunny face in it. Happy New Year!
A truly stunning assortment of cards here Brenda. You already know how I always admire the beautiful backgrounds you create for your inky cards, and have to say you've done amazingly with that CAS black, red and white card (I know you always say you don't do CAS too well so I just had to mention that stunning card!!)
So glad you joined in the hop this year and thank you for the wonderful inspiration throughout the year!
What a beautiful assortment of handmade cards! I can see why it was so hard to pick a few favorites. You are a master a layering stamp sets. That butterfly card is my probably MY favorite but mostly because I just love anything with butterflies.

You have some very beautiful cards posted there. I truly love the fairy ones. The green card is stunning. I wish you a Blessed, healthier, and crafty 2023.
Ciao Brenda, non so come hai fatto a scegliere soltanto una card al mese! Tu sei sempre molto produttiva ed eclettica, hai creato davvero così tante opere d'arte!!
Questa carrellata si contraddistingue per i colori accesi e vibranti e ovviamente la Natura è il tuo soggetto preferito! Mi ha fatto molto piacere rivederle.
Un abbraccio, spero che tu stia meglio per festeggiare l'anno nuovo con gioia.
Your cards are absolutely stunning and your photographs of winter beauty; well there are no words to express their beauty. Thank you for sharing.
I would have a hard time picking from all your stunning creations!
They're all lovely!
Hope you are well, and Happy New Year!
