Happy New Year!

Hello friends!

Happy New Year! I know, 2016 is not that new anymore but since this is my first post this year I wanted to wish you a happy, healthy New Year with lots of time to create!

I hope your holidays were enjoyable. We spent them in Germany with my family and it was wonderful! We hadn't been there for Christmas in 11 years and among other things I wanted to show my kids some of the "Christkindlmärkte" (outdoor Christmas markets). My pictures are not the greatest but just to give you an idea:

(My hometown projects images onto the facades of buildings downtown)

Now first some administrative stuff:

You might have already seen it on other blogs that here will be some changes with Blogger:

Effective January 11, 2016 only Google account holders will be able to follow blogs with Blogger. In addition, Blogger will also remove any followers without a Google account from the blogs they are following. For the full announcement from Google click here.

I definitely don't want to loose any of my dear followers! So if you are reading my blog via Google Friend Connect you have the following options:

  • You can create a Google Account.  Then you would need to become a Follower again because all previous Followers who did not have an account will be permanently removed from my Follower lists by Google.
  • If you choose not to open a Google account, you can still follow my blog via email, bloglovin, or feedly.

And now I would like to do a review of my favorite cards that I posted last year. This year I did not pick one per month but my favorites of all so sometimes there are several in one month and other months are missing. If you want to go to the original blog post click on the dates underneath the photo.

Boy, that was hard. Could have included several more...
If you are interested check out a similar post from last year by clicking here.

I am linking up over at Lyndal Higgins blog.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart if you stuck with me till the end!
Hope to post some new creations soon and that you'll be back!

Happy New Year to you and yours Susanne. Lovely market pictures. I was saying to Hubby that we may have to check out the German markets, having been to Prague at the beginning of December.
Lovely cards you have made. Thank you for your visit.
