My Favourite 10 Cards of 2012.

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a lovely New Year and that 2013 is good to you all.  Mine started off well as I found out last night that I was one of the winners over at Passion for Promarkers and I have won one of the Letraset Seasons Gift Sets, and I know they're absolutely stunning so I'm really pleased with that one.  I had entered my Eleanor & Wanda card (next posting down) into that one.

Well, as it's a new year I've 'pimped' my blog and created a totally new and unique header and background, so I'm really proud of myself for managing that.  I have used a gorgeous kit from Just So Scrappy to design it and managed to work out how to get it on here.  Actually, I'm not just proud of myself for managing to do it...I'm amazed at myself, lol.  Hope you like it?  Thought I'd do a nice one for Valentine's Day...and because I loved the owls.  :oD

Fiddling around doing this kept me busy all of yesterday (well, not the designing but the learning) so today I'll do a catch up and try and do a Top 10 list of my favourite cards from last year...let's see if I can manage it:

In no particular order:











Yep...happy with these ten.  :oD

Anyway...lots of exciting things to look forward to in the coming year.  Lots of cards to make, people to meet on here...  bring it on!

Take care everyone, and happy crafting!

  2. Aaww...thank you.

    I didn't use Bookatrix for that card...it was done in Craft Artist 2. I have done a tutorial for it which you can find a the top of the page. They're lovely cards to make.

    1. Thanks Sue!

      I set up another blog to test it all on. I copied this one so it was the same and then messed around on there, got it all just right and then it only took a couple of minutes to put it on here. Your real blog stays safe then...tis too scary to do it straight off, lol.

    The butterfly on the first card, did you cut that out with a die? (if so, what die did you use?)
