HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!
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!!!
