2017 – My Favorites

Here we are on the last day of the year. While it feels like the year went by fast as I reflect it has been a year full of experiences.

While I have been crafting; creating gift tags, gifts, and cards. I have not been taking photos for my blog. = (  So I am wrapping up the year with a look back at some of my favorite cards in 2017.
