That was 2009

Happy New Year - I hope this year is going to be good to us all.

I've seen quite a few of my blogging friends have showcased their favourite cards from 2009 - choosing one card from each month, and me hating feeling left out decided to join in lol.  And it turned out to be quite a marathon, there were quite a few cards that I battled to choose between, and a lot I had forgotten all about too.




feb March

mar April


















Leave me a comment if you do one of these trips down memory lane so I can pop across and see what your favourites were

Thanks for stopping by,
