A Year in Review...

I thought it would be interesting to review the cards that have been my favorites over the past year. Since I only started using Magnolia Images last April, I just barely have a year to review but here are those that are my personal favorites. The first nine cards are Mo's Digital Pencil images (which I only discovered in the late summer) the remainder are Magnolia images. They are in no particular order...

Twins in TuTu's a Mo's Digital Pencil Image...

From the Terrible Two's Collection...

My entry into the Pixie Cottage Challenge...

This gorgeous angel, whom I made a smaller image of and made an ornament out of that fitted inside the card...

Another Mo image...Kai in the snow

Another entry to the Pixie Cottage Challenge...

This beautiful image is Tabia from Mos' Digital Images...

Wynken, Blynken and Nod - a baby card that welcomed my new neighbour, Baby William...

One of the first images I colored of Mo's Digital Images...

My entry into the Magnolia-licious Home page challenge...

My very first Tri Shutter Card. It went to my very dear friend in Canada...

This was a personal challenge card. Red, White and Black only...

This is my most recent card, a birthday card for my sister in WA State...

One of the first cards I did stitching on...

A RAK card which was sent to a Yahoo member who had broken her wrist...

My first Mingle card...I loved working on this card...

I love this card with the pretty flowers added to it...

I actually bought some eyeglass charms and added them to this card...

After making my Christmas Advent Box - which I didn't like - I made this Advent Calendar. I love this one so much. The faces are just so sweeet...

One of my very first projects. With images that were sent to me until my first order arrived, I made a set of 3X3 note cards with matching envelopes.

Well that's it folks. Just a brief sample of some of my work during 2009. I have already started on a project for my first of 2010. Looking forward to a productive year...

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments you made to my work, for all the support and encouragement as I stretched myself outside my comfort zone and dealt with three rambunctious children at the same time. Your words have have given me comfort, encouragement and helped me grow in my faith...I so appreciate each and every one of you.
