A Year in Cards

Hi to everyone who ventures here on the first day of a new year which is always so exciting as it gives us the opportunity to draw a line under last year and start afresh.  Last year was a bit mixed for me as I did have problems with my gall bladder for more than half the year, but I am pleased to say that normal services have been  I have decided to do what I have noticed a few other people have done which is to mark the start of a new year with a montage of cards, one from each month of last year, some of which are my personal favourites and others were those that seemed to hit the spot with you all, so here goes:


I hope you have all enjoyed taking another look at some of my cards from 2017 and I look forward to seeing you all throughout 2018.

  Wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


  1. You have an artist in you, Pat!!! Love when you create gorgeous watercolor scenes! Beautiful set of cards!!! Happy New Year !!!

  2. Happy New Year Pat and thank you for sharing such a wonderful collection of cards with us. I think my two favourites are the first one and the African scene but to be honest, I love them all. I’m looking forward to your new creations in 2018 and to our continued friendship. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

  6. Happy New Year to you & your loved ones, Pat. It was such a treat to revisit all these gorgeous cards, and lots of them were my especial favorites too. The safari scene reminded me to use a NBUS (Hero Arts monthly kit!) as this one is fabulous! Loved the maple leaf one as well, well all of them! You must have had a difficult choice picking one to share for each month, as your cards are always so fab! TFS & Hugs. Also many thanks for your sweet comments, and I hope 2018 will just be plain sailing as far as health issues.
