Favorites of 2012

Hi There!

Many of my blogging friends are sharing posts of their favorite cards created this past year, so I thought it would be neat to go through my own cards and share them too. It was fun to look all the way back and be reminded of the colors, designs, stamps and techniques that I used on my cards in 2012. So here goes - sit back, relax and hopefully you'll enjoy seeing these cards, even if you've seen them before.  :)

Needing To Create!

Hi there!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was lots of fun! Time spent with family is the best! Boy did we ever laugh!

I had yesterday off from work too, and really wanted to get crafting, but wasn't feeling any creativity. So, I looked through my little notebook of ideas and came across a technique shared awhile back from Shari Carroll called, Soft Shadowed Background.

I used the Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish and Music Background, along with Old Paper and Weathered Wood Distress Inks. A pretty silk ribbon and a couple of punched butterflies finish off the card.
