I hope you have all had a wonderful christmas, with lots of goodies both crafty and none crafty. My best present was a Grand Calibur from the hubby - which we got on deal about a month back but wasnt allowed to have until xmas day!!! - I have treated myself to a set of Grand Circles to go with it so cant wait to be able to get all my crafting stuuf back out and have a play. Little miss Abigail has been a bit poorly over christmas although it hasn't stopped her getting excited about things. Both of them have loved all their presents they received and their new tablets have been keeping them quiet and entertained lol. I myself was a bit off on christmas day and after eating a fantastic lunch cooked for us by my stepmom - proceeded to throw it all back up with the space of 10 mins, it doesnt seemed to have settled properly yet so am having to be very careful with what I am eating xx
Anyway today I am joining in with Debby's top five of 2012, Its been a great opportunity to look back over my year of cards and see how I have improved and look at different styles I have tried out. I can see some definate improvements in my colouring over the year as I have tried new tricks etc and have also loved doing a lot of shaped/easel style cards too - I hope I can pick just 5 lol!!!!

Here goes :-
My hubby's valentines card, trying out a new shape card which I sized up and printed out a template for. I loved how the faux lace edging worked out.
This little cutie was made for friends and love the sweet image and how pretty it all turned out. Again love the circular easel style - which was all cut by hand (not anymore)
Just love this everything about this card, from the cute little girl to the pretty papers and gorgeous flowers.
Love the shape of this one and the gorgeous papers and sweet image. I have been really lucky to work with the Milkcoffee girls and love all their sweet designs.
Just love the boldness of the colours on this and was really pleased with how the image turned out.
Another sweet image and all things pretty on this one, love the cool colours
Finally I think this has to be my fave from the whole year, love the beautiful SC image and all the gorgeous flowers and embellies. I really went to town on this card and still have it in my box as I cant seem to part with it.
OK!!!! so I ended up with my top 7 - trust me it could have been more, I really struggled to choose my fave ones as I seemed to have made a few this year that I really liked. I think its obvious that my fave style is all about the pretty things and love adding flowers, ribbon and little trinkets to my cards.
Thanks for popping by my blog today
