I love seeing my friends posts celebrating there favorite cards of 2011 so I thought I would do the same! I am deciding this as I write this post so I am looking forward to hunting through my cards to find my favorites! (BTW New challenge post for Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday challenge underneath..)
2011 was a great crafting year for me! I was beyond blessed and so happy to have been asked to be a Hero Arts Hostess! I was part of an amazing group of 5 talented ladies from February through April! It was a great three months. One of my favorite cards is actually the one that they introduced me as one of the apron ladies on the Hero Arts blog here. I wanted a fun card using one of my favorite color combos. You don't know how much thought I put into this card I made several versions and emailed my local crafty friends for advice!
This is another favorite card of mine, not only do I love the stamp but it's my first time trying stamp kissing technique and I loved doing it!
It may be odd to have a sympathy card as a favorite from 2011 but it is!
This card uses my favorite twine by the Twinery! I not only made one of these butterflies I made 2 since Ariel took the first one and I couldn't find it! :> (Later on I found it in her crafty bag!)
This has to be one of my favorite cards because I made it on my first video ever, and for Hero Arts! You can see the video here. About a week after the video going up I went to look at it and almost fell off my chair when I saw that it had 5,500 hits! I couldn't believe it! Talk about shocked!
With that said when I made my next video for Hero Arts I was beyond nervous! Could you tell? I did three cards in that video and this one is my favorite of them, you can see the video here.
This card for sure is one of my favorites, I made it as my last card saying thank you being a hostess and it was shared on the HA blog. I think this stamp set nd Basic Grey papers is my favorite that they released in 2011!!
This is my favorite Mother's Day card that I made:
This is a card that is very me which is why it's one of my favorites:
It's getting harder and harder to choose! I so love this one:
In July I was a guest designer for Market Street Stamps! I love there stamps! This isn't one of the cards that I made for that but one I made later with there stamps that I love!
I was also a guest designer for GCD Studios in November! I love there products and this was my favorite card I made for them:
The invites that I made for Ariel's birthday are so my favorite not because I slaved away on them of anything:
This is one of my favorite Christmas cards that I made this year, I made it for my first class that I taught this past November!
And this is another one of my favorite holiday cards from this year:
And there you have it! My favorite cards from 2011! It's been a great year for me crafty wise and I can't wait to see what 2012 holds in store!!! I better run, the kids are gone and were heading out to party with a bunch of friends!
