As you can see, I'm still a flower girl, but there were lots of wreaths made this year, too!  A new door opened for me this year, as a designer for Tammy Tutterow's lovely designs.  She loves hearts and flowers as much as I do, and I look forward to playing with more of her designs in the New Year.

If you do a similar post of your favorites, I'd love to come visit your blog - just leave me a link in your comment.  Thank you for your visit today, and I wish us all a happy, healthy, and crafty 2017!


  1. really difficult to choose, Lin - but the blue ribbon goes to the christmas cardinal - love the wood and embossed background and overall the whole design! looking forward to your creations in 2017 - was just trying to think of how many years i've been following you - think it started with Deb's card chain challenge or maybe Hero Arts!

  2. Beautiful cards, Lin! Happy New Year, Jo x

  3. Lovely mix of cards Lin! My fave card is the Sending Hugs & Prayers. The loose water colouring makes a perfect background for the Altenew flower. I have to give an honorable mention to the cardinal card. The wood grain paper and the embossed background really makes the cardinal shine! Happy New Year Lin!

  4. For You is my favorite with Joy, a close second. Plus you've brought back my favorite blog banner! Happy New Year!

  5. You do have a way with florals Lin! These are all marvelous. Happy New Year!!

    Blessings, and may 2017 be all that you desire
