Reflections of the year...in cards.

So as 2007 comes to its' last day, I can't help but think about what a great year it's been and hope the next one is just as good or better. This time of year also has me looking back at all of my cards that I've made over the year-the good, bad and ugly! Looking back there are some cards that have me shaking my head wondering what I was thinking when I made that card. Anyway, today I want to focus on the good and share a few of my favorites from the past year.


For this card I used Daisy D's punch-out tags. They're held together by Daisy D's hinges. The photo corners are also Daisy D's. Tree stamp is by Hampton Art Stamps, the sentiment is computer generated and printed on vellum.






I made this for Wendi's birthday. It was based on a circle card tutorial Carla (Moralia) did. I was beyond thrilled when I found these coloured CD envelopes with windows that fit the card perfectly.




I loved the colours of this one. So soft and pretty. The corrugated paper has been in my scraps pile forever. Daisy die cut from Sizzix, PP is from K&Co. flower from Prima, brad from MM. The stamp is from JRL Design Co.






Sticker is by PSX, pp is by My Mind's Eye, Bohemia. Brads by Making Memories, sentiment stamp from Michaels.





This was a thank you card for friends who had a Tex Mex BBQ. The image is a napkin that they had at the party which I 'borrowed' to make the card. I knew it would make a cute card. Brads are by Karen Foster, don't know who makes twill.





Another PSX sticker. The BG stamp is Anna Griffin as is the sentiment. Offray ribbon.







One of my favourite PSX stickers, love the colors and the image seems to take me back to a simpler time. PP is My Mind's Eye-Bohemia, background stamp, sentiment and ink are from Anna Griffin, rhinestones are Icons from Me and my Big Ideas. The size of the card is 5x7.







Anna Griffin carriage stamp, American Crafts Rub on flourishes.





PP is K&Co., BG stamp is Anna Griffin again, rub ons from Deja Views. Lace is from a RAK.
And you guessed it, sticker is from PSX again.
Thanks for taking a peek at just a few of over 400 cards that I made in the last year.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year.
