Top 12 of 2012!

Hello my crafty Friends!  I have really been enjoying the Top 12 of 2012 posts a lot of you have been making!  I decided that I too wanted to do a top 12 too!  I think I have done it for at least the past 2 years!  To make it easier on myself I will share my top card for each month!  :>  I've also shared the link for each post that the card comes from in case you would like the info.

I also want to say a BIG THANK YOU for all your super sweet and kind comments on my last post!  Your kind words really touched me!


My favorite is the tooth fairy card and box that I made for a challenge!  I was happy to make them and I quickly hid them in my drawer for when Ariel would lose her tooth.  11 months later just a week after Ariel's 7th birthday I pulled out the box (or rather the tooth fairy delivered the box!)  I was so happy that she never saw the box before and that I actually had it made already!


I love the colors of this luscious birthday card!


In March I received the Floral Blossoms stamp set by Hero Arts (and Basic Grey) and well that is my FAVORITE stamp set by Hero Arts for 2012!  I loved this set and went quite crazy with it!  Here is one of my favorite cards that got me into the Top 20 for Gallery Idol!


My favorite card for April is this Tulip one:


My favorite card for May isn't a favorite card it's a set!  This set later won me Moxie Fab's Card Creations week's Doilies and Lace contest!  (Yay!)


June was the hardest month for me to choose from and also my most challenging month as I competed in Gallery Idol and made it all the way to Top 5.  Each weekend was spent with the focus being on my card for the challenge at hand.  Each Friday all day I thought about what to make.  No other cards all year got that much attention or time spent on it!  After a lot of thought (as I only want 1 card from each month) I am picking this one


July I didn't share too many cards ( must have been burnt out from June) but I did share this fun sail boat shaped card:


In the summer I finally got some Memory Box dies and fell in love!  So great to work with and this card is one of my favorites:


Not only love this stamp set by Sweet Stamp Shop but also love the colors of this card!


October's favorite card is also a Thank you card, I notice that I made a lot of thank you cards in 2012!


I think for November my favorite card is this one that uses Taylored Expressions Nativity Die, I love this die and am slightly bummed I only used it for 2 card styles (6 cards total)


 December's card is easy to pick, it's the one we made on Breakfast Television on my birthday!  I later taught this card in the inner city classes too!

And there you go!  It's been amazing 2012!  Hope you enjoyed it!
