Favorite Cards of 2012

I love going back through my blog and reflecting on the year in Creativity!  Here are my favorite cards made in 2012- I picked one each month..... most using Technique Junkies Techniques.
January:
Image is a digi by Create with TLC

February:
 Image is from Sweet Stamps on Parchment

March:
I won this set from Flourishes - just love it!

April:
I had fun with Die cuts and Sweet Stamps images

May:
A Mother's Day card using Parchment Crafting from Sweet Stamps .

June:


Sweet Stamps- we had a Bleach Challenge

July:
I love this Impression Obsession Artist- used a Technique Junkies background technique.

August:
Michael Strong Kimono stamp and Die- my daughter left to teach English in China...... 5500 miles is a long way from home!  (We are happy for her though....)

September:
Another Sweet Stamps image- the transparency is colored with Copic refills and the background is a die that is water colored, then placed over a shimmery cardstock (in purple).

October:
Another Sweet Stamps image- this was made for a brayering challenge.

November:

A Sweet Stamps image- this was a challenge for a suspension card. 

December:
The image is by About Art Accents and I used a Chinese newspaper for the background.

Looking forward to another fabulous year of Creativity!

Happy New Year!

Shelly

Hi there Shelley lovely overview and so many different methods looks like you are like me as crafter with many varied interests - my sister tries to get me to concentrate on one with her intensity but not my way thanks so much for sharing and think February December are my two most favourite! and another good thing about this year is we came to know one another through OSA! :D Shaz in oz.x
