Bring on 2012!!

Happy New Year, wahoo!!

Yes it's finally here, 2012 is upon us and fingers crossed it's going to be the best year yet!!  Ha ha, I say that every year but I really hope this year is going to be a good one.  We've had some real rubbish years recently (yes my middle name is lucky, lol!) but I'm starting this year with a positive outlook on life, it's got to help right?!  Wishing all of you a happy, healthy and crafty good year!!  :o)

You've probably seen loads of "Top 10 for 2011's" but I thought I'd join in too, it's fun to look back and see how far you've come or how much your 'style' has changed isn't it!  And as others have done I'm also going to choose my Top 10 (or should that be 12?!) by month but as I had a broken wrist for 7 weeks (really, only 7 definitely felt like longer!) I've only got 11 months to choose from!!  So here we go, my top 11!...

I made this card for my Mum and I love the rich colour combo and DP's.  I think this was the first card I ever used Wild Orchid flowers on too!

I made this card for our friends daughter who I thought was turning 13, but she was actually turning 12, doh!  Although her father did say she was going on 15 so I was alright, lol!  Anyway, I was really happy with my colouring on this card and loved the purple and aqua colour combo.

This one I made for my Sister-In-Law and so began my love for these MME papers!  I love the girlyness of this card and the layout too.

This is my favourite for May, not because it was necessarily my favourite design but because I was sooooo desperate to get back to card making I actually made this one with my cast still on!!  So I'm quite impressed with my efforts really (although I used my blender pen a lot to correct where I'd gone over the lines lol!!)

This grunge-tastic card I made for my Brother-In-Law, I love all the distressing and the 'letting myself go' element I had with this card - it was lots of fun to make!!

This was my Dad's birthday card and one of the first 'scene' cards I'd made, I especially love the little picture frame of me and my Dad in his 'front room' lol!

I made this card for my cousin, I absolutely LOVE 'Gorgeous' and the DP's and simplicity of this one

My one and only ever CAS card!!  I really enjoyed making it and really should try this style more often

This one I made for one of my Netball team mates, it started another love affair with these MME DP's lol!  Loving the girlyness again

This one I made for my Auntie, another Belles n Whistles (another love affair, lol!) but I think these MME DP's are absolutely gorgeous.  A fab colour combo of Blue and Brown and another girly creation, lush!

It has to be a Christmas card in December doesn't it!  So here it is, the one I made for my Sister-In-Law and Brother-In-Law

Fun huh!  I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane, there were lots of new 'love affairs' going on - MME DP's (sooooo many gorgeous collections to choose from!), Belles n Whistles stamps, Tilda (always a favourite), Lace, doodling and Kraft card, gosh what did I do before Kraft card lol?!!

I've joined in with Kellie's Top 10 which you can find here.

See you all soon peeps,
Much love,
