Top cards of 2011


Wow -- another year come & gone. When does time stop moving at a snail's pace, & start moving at the speed of light?? There is just never enough time to do everything that I need to -- or that I want to. I wasn't in my craft room NEARLY enough this year. That darn job really gets in the way :) Everyone in blogland is posting their top 11 or 12 cards of the year -- & I was pretty sure I hadn't even made 12 this whole year. But I went back through my SCS gallery & gosh, I *did* make more than 12! Even so, I kept my top cards to 8. Seemed like a fair ratio :)

So here are my top 8 cards of 2011 (click on the name of the card to go to the original post):

SENDING YOU A GREAT BIG HUG -- seemed like I waited a LONG time to get my hands on this cute Tilda -- they were always sold out.

JUST FOR YOU -- not my best coloring, but I like how the whole card came together -- & the papers are one of my favorite lines.

OLD BUZZARD -- everyone knows how much I *adore* Crissy Armstrong & her adorable images. This is one from her High Hopes collection & I use it a LOT -- perfect for all the birthday cards I have to make for "old" people (meaning over 30 LOL)

FLUFFLES & FRIENDS -- Fluffles was one of my first loves -- dug him out to make this springy card back in April.

BETTY BUG -- love the Itty Bitties from Pink Cat Studio! And this is another favorite line from Basic Grey -- so colorful & cheerful!

FISHING TILDA -- knew the minute I saw this Tilda I had to have her. Who doesn't love fishing on a lazy summer day?

BACK TO SCHOOL BART -- this one is special for 2 reasons -- it was my very first digi -- & it was published in the Whimsy Inspirations magazine -- I'm so proud :)

CHOPPERS CHILAXIN' -- another proud moment -- my first card as a dt member for Sundays with Crissy! I am thrilled that I get to work with Crissy again -- & all the ladies on the team are amazing. I don't really "do" clean & simple, which was my debut challenge -- but I do like how this turned out. Can't really mess up Choppers :)

LENNY -- as you have probably guessed, High Hopes stamps are VERY important to me!

AUTUMN TILDA -- fall is my favorite time of year -- & this is another Tilda that always seemed to be out of stock every time I wanted to order her.

So there you have it. I do hope I'm able to create more in the coming year. I've been working for a year & a half now, & I still can't get that perfect balance. And no, I'm not giving up sleep!

I hope you all have a safe & happy new year! My day consists of putting away all things Christmas -- playing with my bread machine -- & hanging with my kids. A perfect day to me :)

Love to you all, & happy 2012!!!

Love everything you do. You are the one who first interested me in trying to learn to color with pencils and then copics. Beautiful cards.

Have fun with your bread machine! Ain't nothin' nicer than the smell of bread cookin' - mmmmm - and so hard NOT to eat the whole loaf all at once!! Don't ask me how I know........

Happy New Year Michelle to you and your family!
