A Year in Review

Well some of my bestest blogging pals are reviewing their favourite cards for 2011 and I thought, that looks like fun! So I have gone through and picked the cards that I was proud of for 2011. One thing I noticed is that my watermark has really changed over the year!  I am also noticing a floral theme!

 January 2011
Wow, I was busy this month with lots of different cards! It was hard to choose one card but the one that I loved the most was a card I created for the Paper Players Colour Challenge.

 February 2011

February seemed to be a month of making cards in groups!  This set is one that I showcased at the Stampin' Up Regionals. I was a WOW Presenter and I was SO nervous! I made this card using chalks.

March 2011
I cannot believe I made this set in March! Wow, what a quick year this has been.  I turned this set into a tutorial that I made and have for sale still.  Thank you to all the bloggers who purchased my tutorial!

April 2011

This was the first card I made for the Picture Perfect Creations DT I was on! I loved that team of ladies, they were all so supportive. Sadly the challenge had to shut down for a while but I am hoping they will start up again.

May/June 2011
I had something happen to all my photos on my blog in May and June...the only photo I had was of this card I made with an embossing folder on velum. I am so sad all of my other cards were lost!

I will be back tomorrow with the rest of my choices for 2011.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. All gorgeous, Lesley! I love the January card; it has crimping which totally says Lesley to me. :) Happy New Year!

  2. What a great idea to showcase your favourite cards for the past year! I might have to do it myself :) Happy New Year, Lesley!

  3. This has been fantastic, Lesley - seeing everyone's favorites and yours are absolutely gorgeous. I can see why you selected them - I'm with Rita, I especially loved your January card - the background, that gorgeous focal center with the crimping - exquisite!

    I'm with Sandra as well - I may have to do a year in review of my cards as well. Not as many to pick from but that gives me a goal to do lots more in 2012! :)

  4. Beautiful cards Lesley, and yes, definitely a floral theme going on :0) Thats ok, I had a Christmas theme with mine, LOL.

    I love the March card...blues and greens are my favorite colors and I am always drawn to cards that use them :)

  5. What a fabulous array of card Lesley ... love them all! I like the floral theme, you do it soo well!
    And a happy happy New Year!!!

  6. Your cards are always so beautiful, Lesley! I love that February card, as that is a technique I have never attempted. can't wait to see the rest of the year in review. Happy New Year, my friend! :)
