Year in Review: My Top 10 Favorite Cards of 2012

 
Here it is ... the last day of 2012 ... and I totally can't believe how fast this year flew by. You're nodding in agreement, right?

Anyway, it's the perfect day to take a look back over the last year and choose a few of my favorite cards. Some of them are favorites for sentimental reasons and some are favorites just because I was really pleased with the end result. I'd love to know if any of these were a favorite of yours too!

I've linked each card to the orginal post in case you'd like to see more photos, find out details, or see the supply list (click on the card title below each photo). So, without further ado ... my top 10 favorite cards of 2012:

  16. Hi Gayle. This is my first visit to your blog and I am very impressed with the care and attention to detail that you take when creating your cards. Each one is a work of art and I am sure our heroes can feel the love that you have put into them. The white CAS Thank you card is right up my alley so I simply have to chose that as my personal favorite. Thank you for sharing.

  20. I've never seen your cards before and they are absolutely fantastic! I love what you did with the banners on your Colors on Parade. I think I'd like to CASE that. But I think MY favorite is your first card. I love the color choices, I love the layering, I love the spritzing (?) of the background, I love the double ribbon... just an all around fantastic card!!
