Happy New Year, Stampin' Friends - My Favourite Crafty Creations of 2016

Happy New Year stampin' friends! I thought I'd keep up with my tradition and recap some of my favourite cards of 2016. I always enjoy this little trip down memory lane. I was also very fortunate to join the Curtain Call Crew in 2016 - one of my all time favourite challenges...the crew is such an amazing group of talented, supportive and kind-hearted ladies led by Stacey...such an honour to be a part of the Crew! 

Unfortunately, I wasn't quite as productive over the course of the year, as 2016 proved to be a rather challenging year for my husband and our family. We were dealt a blow early in the year, when in February, we learned that my husband, Chris, had Small Bowel Cancer, a rare cancer, making it difficult to diagnose. It wasn't at all what we wanted to hear but it finally answered our longstanding question as to the cause of over 3 years of pain and suffering.  Now,  he is doing very well, he got through surgery and chemotherapy and we are very happy to have that and 2016 behind us. I have a very good feeling about 2017...I know it will be a good year for us!

My Favorite Things...MFTWSC #312 - Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas stampin' friends! Wishing you all a wonderful day spent with family and friends! I'm just stopping by to share a Christmas card that I made for the MFTWSC # 312 Sketch Challenge with one of my all time favourite Pure Innocence stamps - Season's Tweetings

I used MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Kraft, Black Licorice, Electric Red and Jellybean Green 
and I used Authentique Joyous 6X6 patterned papers

Blueprints 1 and 13 are go-to Die-namics for the main panels of my cards and then I used the Die-namics Rectangle STAX 1 and 2. I also used the largest vertical strip from the Vertical Strips  Die-namics and re-cut it to fit the span of the card. I coloured the cute PI Season's Tweetings girl and birds with my Copics and paper pieced her outfit.

I used the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics cut from corrugated Kraft cardstock and layered it over the fishtail banner cut from Black Licorice and Jellybean Green Heavyweight cardstock. I stamped the  sentiment from the Happy Christmas Pure Innocence Stamp set with Sweet Tooth Premium Pigment Ink and embossed with AC Zing White Embossing powder. I embellished with some Hemp cord and red YNS Gumdrops

I finished off the inside of my card too....I stamped a a shadow image of the PI Season's Tweetings girl and stamped and embossed another sentiment from the retired PI Christmas Caroler Stamp set
Thanks SO much to all my stampin' friends for visiting and havin' a little look at my card for the MFTWSC Sketch Challenge # 312!
Happy Christmas and wishing you much happiness, good health and a very prosperous 2017!
