My top 5 cards of 2012


As usual the lovely Debby has set the challenge of your 5 favourite cards of 2012. I thought choosing my 5 favourite Christmas cards was hard enough. As I had already chosen those I decided not to include any Christmas cards in this selection. So here we go, in no order.....


I just had to choose a purple card and I love all the elements on this on, LOTV image,gorgoues flowers, clock die and pearls.


I love making boy's cards, as you may know and I think this old fashioned little boy is so cute. 


A distressed card this time a gorgeous Saturated Canary image. 


Another kraft card I know. This was my hubby's anniversary card and love the Sarah Kay image.


I've really enjoyed trying some new techniques this year and I love the way this card turned out.

So there we are. I could have chosen more of course and on another day my choices may have been different. I really want to continue trying out different cards though stamping and colouring will always be my favourite. I am also resolving to continue making Christmas cards all year round and to do more scrapbooking. I started 2012 well with layouts but then the pressures of creating for craft fairs took over. So I will be doing less craft fairs in 2013 and more scrapbooking. 

That just leaves me to wish you all 
A Very Happy New Year
Let's hope it is a happy, healthy and prosperous one for us all.

Thanks for all your support and comments throughout 2012.
