Top 12 of 2011




I saw this event at a blog thanks to Splitcoast and since I was thinking of doing a 'Favorite cards of 2011 post anyway, I decided I would participate. I can't get over how tough it was to decide on my favorite twelve cards.

A few things to note:

-When I was choosing my 12, I had about 16 I loved. To narrow it down, I tried to choose ones that didn't get many comments when they were originally posted.

-I've included links to the original post. If you want to see details re: products used, that is where you will find the info.

-I have taken the time to go through all my blog posts and improve my labelling. The list of labels is on the left hand side of my blog. I do my best to label all my cards both as 'cards' in general and by set name. I'd love it if you took some time to explore my blog and make some comments. Always looking for more subscribers and followers, too. I got my 30th yesterday. Woo hoo! I hope to hit 50 in 2012.

On to the cards:

#12 - Original post Jan 7th If I had added just a bit more bling to this card, it would rank higher. As it is, I still really like it. No matter how much I wish it wasn't the case, I am a clean and simple cardmaker.

 #10 and #11 Original post here I really should have gotten around to colouring these... other than that I think they're cute. I do still have them so there's still time...



 #9 Original post here. This poor card got NO love. I was said.I thought it was cute.

 #8 Original post here. Admittedly, I should've coloured Mr. Froggy.

 #7 Original post here. This card is one of the few where I didn't use ANY stamps.

#6 Original post here.  I love how the colours of this one turned out. Such a great girly card.


 #5 Original post here, I adore this card. It was disappointing that it got no love.
 #3, 4 Original post here.  These two are a couple more class cards I tweaked.


 #2 Original post here. I love how this turned out; I was just fooling around with scraps.
 #1 Original post here, This card was done in a class, but I tweaked it. Turned out super cute, if I do say so myself! This set is now one of my all time favorites.

I liked your embossed Christmas tree (maybe because I just can't get the hang of heat embossing but love the look) and your popsicle card!
