Best of 2011: Cards

Happy Friday!  I am back today with a round-up of my 10 favorite cards from 2011.  My goal for 2012 is to actually send out more of my cards.  My card stash is entirely too big!  

I really liked how this one turned out.  It's a standard sized card, but I changed it up a bit and there's a place on the inside for a gift card.

This card was for a blog hop.  The card was supposed to feature a scene, and for some reason I had the hardest time coming up with anything.  

I love shaped cards and I especially like how this little hippo turned out.  

I still really love this card.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but the little peas are popped up using pop dots.  Those little Peachy faces are so sweet.

I love the bright colors and I especially like the patterned paper...wish I had more of that.  

Another shape card...I think this was one of my first projects using Kate's ABCs. I searched and searched for that cartridge, and I haven't used it nearly as often as I thought I would.  Maybe I should dust off my Cricut.

I am still learning how to use watercolors, but I think this was my best effort from 2011.  I really want to make more time next year to work on coloring techniques.

I was so excited to try out the baker's twine pom-poms, but I think I ended up using every bit of red twine that I had on hand.  Oh well...I still think it turned out pretty cute.

This is my first and only attempt at a spinner card.  I can't wait to give it another try.  Maybe next year...

Hmmm...another shaped card. 

I thought this was going to be my last post of 2011, but I have ONE more "best of" post to share tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome card picks!!!! And I'm glad that I'm not the only one with an entirely too big stash of cards. I always intend to send more out than I do. That is an AWESOME goal for 2012! Hugs- Glora

You blow me away every time I look at your blog. You are soooo talented. I love your cards. My favorite project was the Christmas advent calendar. I know you said it took a long time but it was definitely worth it. It was so nice!
