Hello lovely peeps,
Today I have a few favourite cards of 2012 to share. I've seen people sharing their favourite card of each month or their favourite top 10 cards but didn't think I'd be able to find enough cards that I wanted to share again, but I was wrong and found it harder to pick some favourites than I thought.
First of all I have picked a card using a Belles & Whistles stamp called Little Friend. I had several people email me about this card asking to buy it or would I mind if they copied it which made me take a closer look & decide I do like the way this card turned out lol.
My next card features my new favourite Tilda and for this card I dusted off my paint brushes and coloured her with distress inks and markers for a change.
This card is a bit different for me as I've only ever made 3 or 4 Vintage cards but it's snuck in among my favourites
I've chosen a card using an older Tilda on it as I think we tend to forget about our older stamps when we have new rubber to play with.
This was a card for Simon Says Stamp & the DT were kindly sent some Gelatos to feature on our cards, after getting my head around my "OMG how am I going to colour with those" panic I really enjoyed using them and I love the softness of the colours on this card.
Another love of mine is Saturated Canary images and I've coloured so many of these cuties which are sat in a wallet awaiting being put on a card, I just love colouring them especially those with "big hair" which is a challenge to get the shading right.
This sweet little Tilda is from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams collection & I think she's way too pretty to only use at Christmas
Next up is Anastasia from Make It Crafty & is probably the most time consuming image I've ever coloured as it has so many little details to it but I think she turned out pretty, this little card keeps popping up on Pinterest :)
Sweet Tilda in Key Largo I just love her & the banners on this card :)
This little card using a Mo Manning image & is another that keeps popping up on Pinterest so she's doing the rounds lol.
She's back, yes my favourite Tilda has snuck back in there again :)
Pearls in her Hair from A Day for Daises :)
I love this image and really enjoyed colouring her practising colouring folds and shading.
I made these cards for the Simon Says Stamps card drive for Maddy & Melanie and went all out pretty and girlie.
It's nice to look back on cards and notice different designs, techniques, stamps or embellies I've not used for ages, maybe I should try this more often when I have brain freeze and can't decide what to do lol.
I am too late joining my lovely teamie Debby for her sharing of favourite Christmas cards but here's my favourite 5 anyway :)
Sweet Cozy Christmas Bear
I'll tell you what isn't a favourite & it's something I have talked about many times in the 8 months I've had it! The bleddy (Jode's word) PINK THING!!!
Not only has it started crashing on me again & despite all threats I haven't actually physically harmed it no matter how much I want to, the back now won't stay clipped on so when I try and close it this happens -
How lovely to be able to see the inside of your laptop, Curry's & I are seriously going to fall out this time lol.
Don't forget if you would like to enter my surprise followers candy and haven't already it will be ending soon.
This is my last post for 2012 as I'm planning on hopping around as many of my favourite blogs as possible, pink thing depending!
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my blog, emails, following me & pinning my crafty makes on Pinterest, and also for listening to my rants about that pink thing lol.
Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy & Creative New Year
