Party in the Pond. . . . .Anniversary Special.




Good morning Duckadees. Hope all is well in your bit of the pond. My head still has a dent but the soreness has subsided. Bumper pillow is staying put, just in case.
Now, as Im belatedly celebrating my one year blogaversary Im going to be a bit indulgent for the next couple of posts. 
John gave me the idea when he did his reprise of his favourite projects for 2013. I thought I would show the projects I loved throughout my blogging year but did try and be good, picking one per month ( though, I have been naughty and included two on occasion).
 I hope you don't mind, especially those who have been paddling for a while and will have seen these creations. I hope those of you who are newbies will like seeing some of my previous bits and bobs.


I had fun making this for my chum David's birthday last June. He still has it on display.


I think we all have created things that make us go "coo, I like what I've done with that" and I've enjoyed looking back at what I've done over the year.


This is one of my favourite, favourites. I made it for Nesta for her birthday last August  and she still has it on display now.


I had to include the anniversary card I made for Mr Duck as he loved it so much.

Well, that's enough reminiscing for now. Next time will be September to December.
Like I said, I hope you don't mind the recap. At the end of it, I shall be doing another draw for a bit of celebratory candy. I shall get Mr D to pull a name from the hat (well, bowl actually).
Once again, thank you from the heart of my bottom for all of your wonderful comments and for clicking on the little duck picture. . . . .its been a wonderful year.

TTFN

  3. Good morning Ang. I for one like big sister Patricia don't mind in the least you showing us your favourite posts, funnily enough I went back to the beginning of your blog to see what was the first card I had seen when I pressed on the Duck, and I have always loved your card you have at the top here. The work you had put into this is unbelievable - a labour of love. Have a good day. Hazel xx

  7. Thanks for picking some of your favourites. With some of the cards I have seen on your blog since I joined, it must have been hard to chose, and these look terrific, and such a variety of styles.
    Happy anniversary

  12. Ang, if I hadn't been on holiday, and didn't have a sore leg ( long car journey would be painfull) I would have gone with them, mum would love me to share the driving, but I would have had to use my car - don't like the lowness of mums car. Lot of miles to put on mine. But would have loved to have gone crafty shopping, just bought another Sue die. So off to have a play. Thank you for your lovely comment on the girls board. Hazel xx
