5 favorites from 2012

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a great New Year's Eve celebration with my son and his family.

We get together and celebrate my hubby's birthday and then we have a sleepover. We had a wonderful dinner let me tell you. My daughter-in-law is a fabulous cook.

She made a standing rib roast, a potato and leek casserole, roasted herbed cauliflower and roasted green beans. For dessert we had chocolate mousse and a incredible bread pudding with an amaretto sauce.

It is a blessing to my hubby as well. His birthday is December 28th. We have a great family time. My grandsons love it and my daughter-in-law told me at breakfast this morning that she loves sleepovers as well.

We are back home now and all is quiet here with just the 2 of us. I am working on my blog and my hubby is watching tv.

I found a blog that wants us to pick 5 of our favorite cards from last year and post them on our blog. It's a contest and their is a give away. So I thought  I would do a review of my work from last year and see what I liked best.

I made my own background on this one. See the blog post here.

 I just love these sweet chicks and the patterned paper. See blog post here.

Love the sweet Pure Innocence girls. This was my granddaughters valentines card. See blog post here.

 I won a design postion with Great Impressions Stamps with this card. See blog post here.

 I made my first sun-ray background on this one. See blog post here.

  Made this one and there was no stamping. I found this great paper and turned it into a card. See blog post here.

I had a tough time narrowing this down. I had 12 and finally ended up with these 6. That's my partial year in review. Thanks for supporting my blog in 2012. I appreciate all my readers and commenters.

So until next time........God bless.

Entering this in a contest on Debby's blog - A Scrapjourney. Check it out.
