Favorites from All That Scrap Jan-March

My blog spent most of the year on the back burner. In February my husband had both of his knees replaced and I took care of him through out his recovery. In June I had both my knees scoped, In September I had a partial tear in my right rotator cuff repaired as well as a Mumford repair and in November I had a Mumford repair in my left shoulder. It seemed that most of the year was spent recovering.  Each month only had a few posts so choosing was easier than past years.

My favorite from January is this card
You can see it here.

My favorite from February.
You can see it here.

From March this is my favorite.
You can find it here.

What are you favorites from those three months?

First up my friend Buffy, if you haven't visited her blog, you should. Buffy has a way with words, I enjoy reading her blog(confession I often skip the reading and go for the photos) Buffy has an adorable grand daughter that she shows off but I thought I'd better stick to the paper crafts.

One of my favorites is the wreath she made in this post.

Sometimes Simple is Best

I have never seen a Mickey Mouse punch art that I have been happy with, this one from my sons Eagle project was the closest to a like.
 But still I felt I was just "off" a bit with it.

So for a Mickey Curvy Keepsake Box I went with a silhouette
All Basic Black, ears are the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.
