These are chronological, beginning with my dreams of a baby granddaughter, and that dream came true when our sweet little Alma was born in January!
The pink theme continued into February, this time using one of my favorite Hero Arts stamps of the year, called 3 Dotted Flowers:
I used them again on this one, too, using a sketch from CASE Study:
And beginning to dream of spring here, using the Simple Frame stamp:
Here's my lone representation from March, which was inspired by one of my favorite card makers, Jacqueline:
April brought lots of butterflies:
Pinks in May, using my favorite Hydrangea stamp:
For June, I could not resist this one, using one of my oldest stamps that is a sentimental favorite:
I really liked this one, made for a sketch at PaperCrafts magazine, but it was not chosen for publication:
And these colors came from a challenge at CR84FN; such happy colors!
Are you tired yet? From July I chose two cards. This one uses beautiful Pink Paislee flowers and a Verve stamps sentiment:
And this one was a thank you for Nat:
Both of my August choices are from a challenge at Lily Pad Cards using the emboss/resist technique. The second one won me a FAB FIVE prize at Hero Arts!
Two blue cards for September. The first a case of one of Jill Foster's cards, when she invited me to take over her blog for the day:
This one uses another of my sentimental faves, a Flourishes violet stamp:
October is my favorite month, because it means autumn to me:
And one more using the big letter stamps from Hero Arts, along with the faux letterpress technique:
Here are my favorites from November:
And an early look at one of my favorite 2011 Christmas stamps from Hero Arts:
December was mostly Christmas and winter cards:
And for a final challenge of the year:
Are you still with me? Thanks so much for going down memory lane with me. I want to thank all of my followers for sticking with me this year, and encouraging me with your lovely comments. Wishing you all a prosperous and healthy New Year!
