- follow up from previous blog, http://conniekonnykards.blogspot.com/ I am retired here in UK, well into my seventies, and I have crafted as long as I can remember. OH John and I have been happily married for 54 years. We have a lovely family and a cat with attitude ...... Lots of work from my hobbies is on Flickr.

I'm so looking forward to sharon b's 2012 TAST challenge which starts next week.
Inspired by my dear friend Carolyn Saxby (http://carolynsaxby.blogspot.com/) who mentioned that she is thinking of a theme for her work in TAST, and as I have done about half the stitches in the 2007 and all in the 2010 challenges, with no theme, I decided to choose a theme this time too.
So ... I've enjoyed using buttons on Christmas cards this year ... I've had a good sort out of many old boxes tucked away and I've found hundreds of buttons.
I'll be doing TAST, with buttons, (and no doubt flowers and beads, which I can't resist), this time. Let's hope Sharon's stitches are easy enough for me.
This pre-challenge piece is Backstitch and Buttons - very easy!

I needed six more gift tags .. so .. a couple of hours ago I found card offcuts, picture scraps, scissors, cutting knife, rule, DS tape, and my trusty Gold Leaf pen ...
time flies when you're having fun!
I got carried away - never mind, hopefully I'll find them for next year's pressies!

I seem to have fallen into once a month blogging!
Anyway, here we are near to the end of 2011 and looking forward to Christmas and then hopefully a good New Year. My life is quite repetitive, most of my crafting and photography goes on the Flickr site (linked at the side here) so there is not a lot to add here.
Many thanks to friends who pop in, your comments are always very welcome.
Happy Christmas to all and all good wishes for 2012, Connie.
