Some of my favourite cards from 2012
I will tell you, it sure was difficult just picking 12 cards for my top fav's.
I still love the other cards I did, I hope they don't feel left out ;)
Here are some reasons why I have picked the ones I did.
My Strawberry card
This is one of my fav's because not only did I colour in the cute little girl, but I also stamped and coloured in the strawberries. This was just a blank piece of white paper before my Copics worked their magic, teehee.
My Sad Fairy.
Doesn't she look a bit sad to you.
I love this G45 Once Upon a Springtime collection and I think she went well with it.
I made the flower from a die.
I like this one because I got to use my new cloud punch :)
I also took apart a blue acrylic flower to make the raindrops.
Of course the image is a cute one as well :)
I love that even though it is a simple card, it is still very pretty.
I also like how I made the image hang over the card, so it looks like her train is flowing.
I love Books.
This image just touches my heart.
I love to read. I escaped parts of my childhood by living through books :)
I also like that the background paper goes so well with this image.
I love how her hair turned out with my Copics.
I also like how this card just came together so nicely.
You don't see to many masculine cards from me. This one was so fun to do.
I used foam coffee sleeves to cut the gears from, how cool is that.
Again coloured with my Copics.
I was so happy with how this one turned out.
This was an image from my DT. Honestly I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. The image reminded me of that baby from Roger Rabbit, teehee. So I added some more hair on her when I coloured her, and she is so stinkin' cute.
I also was happy with how the transparent balloons turned out and the faint clouds in the sky.
Cup Cake Girl.
When I was totally finished colouring up this image (which I was so happy with how it turned out) I dropped a blue marker on her face..grrr. But if you know me, there are never any mistakes, everything can be fixed. Plus if you know how long it took me to colour her up, you wouldn't want to start all over again either, teehee.
So I re-stamped her face and recoloured it and adhered it to the original image.
I really like how her hair turned out and also how I paper pieced her dress.
I also like the paper ribbon I made and the grass I drew.
I made this card for my niece.
I was really, really happy with how their hair turned out.
Another simple card, but the paper was perfect for this card, so why would I cover it up.
This one was for my nephew's 1st birthday.
Even though I didn't colour in an image, I am still happy with how this turned out.
I really like the colours and papers and that I got to use my banner die ;)
There you have it my 12 cards.
But here's one for good luck....or a bakers dozen ;)
I really like the girly look to this card, with the pinks and blues.
Everything just came together on this one.
13 is back luck right....so here we go the last one....I swear, lol.
Can't imagine why I picked this one can you? Teehee.
I am a proud Canadian Girl
I really do like to make different types of cards, this here is an easel card.
Maybe I should do some more different types of cards in 2013...we'll see.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at all my cards again.
I have linked each card to the original post if you want to know more about each card...just click on the names of the cards and I will take you there :)
I am thankful that I have a passion that I am able to enjoy on a daily basis.
I am thankful that I am able to share it with you all.
I am thankful for my family.
I hope you have all had a creative and thankful Thursday :)
