My Favourite Cards - July to December 2011


Hi blogging friends

If you missed my last post, I am sharing my favourite cards from 2011.  My last post HERE were my favourite cards from January to June 2011.  And now, I am sharing my favourite cards from July to December 2011.

You can click on any of my photos to have a BIGGER look and if you click on the link in the card name, it will take you to the original post on my blog where you will find the Card Recipe and the details on how the card was made.
*****************************

July saw me playing with a new set of watercolour pencils by Derwent called Inktense - oh how I loved how vibrant they were - and this card entitled "Standing Seagull" I made especially for my husband's birthday. 



In August, I made a birthday card called "Fetching Slippers" for my BIL with my one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called "Fetching slippers" - so cute with the dog wearing the cat slippers.  I would love to have some just like it!



In September/October, I made a Christmas Gift Set for my DD of a card, matching tag and a snowglobe - so fun!  And my DD loved it!




November saw me very busy with making Christmas cards plus I made one birthday card for my nephew's 8th birthday - so I have picked 2 favourites from this month.  First my nephew's birthday card "Dinoraur birthday wishes".  Just loved how it all came together with the textures and colours.



And my other favourite was this Christmas card I made with an Elzybells stamp called "Elzybells Teddy and Snowman".  Just loved that dotty designer paper (I LOVE dotted designer paper) and loved the image as I am also nutty about snowmen and teddy bears!   I gave this Christmas card to my DD's teacher together with some shortbread that my DD and I made together and decorated with red and green M and M's (yum!).



I was very productive in December and made more Christmas cards than I ever have in the past.  I also picked 2 favourites from this month.  The first "And if you ever saw him...." was a clean and simple card that came together quickly and easily using my newest stamp "Dasher" by Stampin' Up!  Just love that stamp! 



And my 2nd favourite card for December was "And the angel said...." which was a card that "happened" when I was in a mad rush to make some extra cards as I still hadn't made enough Christmas cards.  I ended up making this card in silver and purple as well as the gold and made a whole lot of them in one sitting. 



So, that's the end of my favourites for 2011.   Hope you enjoyed my little walk back in time.  Now I am flat out making cards for my extended family's January birthdays - four birthdays in the first 10 days of January - eeeek - plus I am "trying" ("trying" being the operative word!!) to make a masculine 90th birthday card - wish me luck with THAT one!!  I am a little stumped for ideas........

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you again soon!

You are seriously SOOOO talented! These are all awesome!! I keep going back to that first one though with the seagull and sailors knot....so eye catching! That one is my fav! :)

Sharron Lynne said...

They are all wonderful, but I have to admit that my favorite is still the seagull. Thanks for sharing.

I love them all, but especially like the seagull! You are sooooo talented! I've been looking at some images that would be more masculine like the barns that Flourishes has and some fishing stuff from North Woods.

Mm, Jobear not sure why a but a free download page came up when I clicked on your comment, and you box came up and the download page over top of it - wonder if you blog is linked to it - closed out too fast to see what it was free download for...think it has happened before now I come to think of it...anyway my favourite is the last one - what a lovely verse for a stamp and well done too with the embossing underneath a cracker of a card, and thanks for encouraging me by your comments too, love Shaz in oz.x
