Debby has a candy over at her blog. To participate you need to pick your five favorite cards of 2012.
I think it's so interesting to see what cards people pick. My experience is that the ones I'm most happy with myself isn't necessarily the ones that give me the most comments or prizes. The feeling I had during the making process also influences how I feel about a card afterwards.
So here goes for my favorites:
My first card is from February - the month I started my blog. I was quite new to cardmaking at this point, so I'm very proud of how this flowery card turned out, and I love papers with spots!
My second card is my favorite CAS card, made in July. The sentiment is in Norwegian and says "I love you". I was picked top 3 for this card over at LIM, an achievement I was very proud of as I find CAS the most challenging cards to make, and there are SO many talented CAS crafters out there!
My third card, also made in July, is my favorite vintage style card. I had so much fun making this one! The weather was really bad and I was in a mood for Christmas.
My fourth card I made in October. I love wood grain, I love kraft and I love owls! I was new to heat embossing at this point, and I had such a fun time playing with my new tools, as well as paper piecing the owls.
My fifth card, made in August, is a favorite because the image reminds me of my two youngest nephews. When my sister spotted this card, she contacted me to say that she HAD to get this one for her birthday! And so she did! I like making male cards as I'm a bit clumsy when it comes to pinks and flowers and all those girly details, but also I have mostly men in my family, so it's also a practical side to it.
