2012: A Year in Review!

Every year, I say I'll post my year in review on January 1st and somehow it's March before I know it, ROFL! :p  

 With my recent blog hiccup, I thought it would be fun to revisit some of my cards from the past year!  I have to manually add them all back one by one from my pc hard-drive (eek!) so in at least I will have 10 of them in one place! *smile!*

Operation Write Home card donation :)

For my husband :) 

Crafters of Faith: Spring

Whipper Snapper swap card :)

My special Raggedy Ann doll card ~ Buggaboo digi :)

My son made his black belt in TaeKwanDo at the age 7!

Crafters of Faith:  End to Summer!

TAT card - mirror image (Try A new Technique!)

Olympics card: I chose Archery as my theme (dd16 is an archer!)

Zombie card for my dd17, who LOVES The Walking Dead!

Crafters of Faith: Christmas Carols

Ye old Merry Christmas from Riley and Company!

And that's just a quick 2013 Year In cards Review! :)
I know some are slightly out of order but with my blog crash,
I'm fining files all over the place!

Btw, the update on my blog hiccup!  A month or so ago, my phone hard-drive crashed and with it went my contacts, information and photos.  Apparently, at some point unbeknownest to me, the phone was connected to my blog - hence, anything stored on my phone when it crashed took the blog with it!
Although I have everything back up in our pc hard-drive (thousands upon thousands of pictures!) it will take a process of loading them ONE BY ONE,
each and every post.  The task is somewhat daunting, so I will reload them little by little in the next year.  So just a head's up - careful where your pictures are connected! I didn't even know my blog was on my phone!
Lesson learned the hard way :P


  1. Wow, Kelly. You have some really great cards there! Thanks for (re)sharing them :-)

  2. Sorry about your phone hook up taking out your blog. I was just having problems with my camera and I downloaded 48 pics, but half way thru the computer decided to freeze up or something. So they got on the computer, but the hiccup was the thumbnail of all of the is the same pic. I tried redoing it but no luck. It never happened before, so I guess I can't complain.
    Thanks for the kind visits and words this year, I am so new and they made my day. I can't wait to see what you come up with next year! Happy New Year!

  3. Wonderful selection of cards, Kelly!!! I've loved each and every one of your cards throughout the year! Can't wait to see all the creations for next year now.
    Hope you and your family have a great 2013.

  4. Wow, amazing how a little gadget like the phone can cause such damage! All of your cards are wonderful, not just the ones up for review! Have a wonderful 2013!

  6. Beautiful cards Kelly - so glad I only have a simple phone - I must warn my daughter!!
    It was lovely to see some of the cards from before I met you - you re such a blessing to me with your cheerful cards.
