My Top Ten Favorites of 2011 (maybe)

Over at Give A Girl A Blog, Kellie wants to see our top 10 favorites we've created for 2011. Well, that was very hard to decide and I had to leave some out. Boo Hoo... You know what, most of mine turned out to be CAS (clean and simple) cards.
Maybe that is telling me something for 2012. Oh, I can't give up the patterned papers, embellishments, and sparkles, though.

Here goes:



8/31/2011-Poppies





10/05/2011 Enjoying Nature


02/22/2011-Bird Among the Ferns









3/11/2011-Fuchsia and Pearls



3/20/2011-Vines and Flowers


06/03/2011-Want to Make a Hydrangea

I had several faves in here: the poppies, the hydrangea, and the bird among the ferns. They're all great cards, Benzi! I agree with you about the horse being a terrific masculine card.

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, my goodness, your cards are beautiful! I, too, love the CAS cards, especially when there's embossing involved, but I also just can't give up those designer papers, not to mention all the fun embellishments. Love that you shared these. Favorites posts are something I look forward to this time of year. Thank you!
