A Year in Review Part 2

Monday is here and that means I am back to work tomorrow, but I am looking forward to it so much!!! I have missed my class. I have all sorts of fun things for us to do this week, with goal setting and reflection on how to have better work habits and such.  I always love to reflect on that sort of thing as well, so it seems fitting to add my last card favourites of 2011.

July 2011
This card was made for a colour challenge over at the Picture Perfect Creations challenge blog. I was on their DT for a spell. Sure loved working with those ladies.  This little teacup is sure cute and one that I need to get out and use once again!!!

August 2011
This was a different card for me to make, but maybe not. I wanted to created something girly and pretty. I was so proud of this card!

September 2011
Yes, I was making Christmas Cards in September and I STILL did not have enough! I love this sweet bird in the main SU! catalogue, it is a favourite of mine and so much fun to colour!  This card was made for my brand new Challenge Blog called "Freshly Made Sketches". I am so proud of my team over there. I am so proud of the Paper Players too!!! I love my DT pals.

I also made this in September!  I loved this sweet little tree stamp from Stampin' Up. I did the emboss resist technique with it.

October 2011
October was an exciting month for me. I got to announce that I would be on the newly formed Inspired by Stamping Design Team. I love Joanna's stamps! I also created some different styles of cards including the one above.  I was so proud of this card, I wanted to make a monster look pretty. We actually gave this card to my boss at work, he loved it!  I used one of Torico's images.

This card is also from Torico, I loved that sweet little pup!  This card was made for my Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

November 2011
This is a card I made for THREE challenges! I was so happy to be the Guest designer over at Scrapbooker's Paradise.  I love this sweet snowman from Sweet and Sassy.  I can see I have been using a lot of digital stamps this past month!

December 2011
December was an amazing month for me!!  I won some challenges that I had always wanted to win at and had been playing for a while!!!  I won at Just us Girls and also at the Colour Q. I cannot tell you how happy this made me!!!  The card I chose for this month won at the Colour Throwdown!  I was so excited about that!  I also had a win at Create with Connie and Mary!!!  I had been going through a dry spell and to win these challenges was so uplifting!!!!  It really made my year!!!!

Well that is my stamping year in review. I made many new blogging friends this year and have been so happy, with changes to my stamping style and also with the addition of new, fabulous design teams. 

Thanks for stopping by!
