my 5 fav of 2011

Good morning all.its time to join in with the fabulous debby again, this time sharing my 5 fav cards of 2011.not sure if i can manage just 5 but we`ll
my challenge was made a little easier this year as i don`t have the full year to look back on as my old laptop died and took all my pics with it.
so in no particular order here are my top 5(er, sorry debby buts its of 2011.

1.i love the soft colours on this one, i normally use stronger colours so i was pleased how this one turned out and i like the cracked glass technique oner the image.

2.i love this one, one of my all time fav sassy stamps and i love these ella blue papers and butterflies.

3.i love the colours again on this one and the distressing and shimmer paint.i also love colouring in sepia and black and white.
4.this one is a more recent make and i think you can see the difference in my colouring, i love the image and strong colours.
5.another recent one and i love the cas design and black and white colouring and of course the gorgeous saturated canary image, this baby stamp by sugar nellie and using the yummy ella blue papers and shimmer paint again.
7.this was my first card using this gorgeous image from crafts and me and is my highest commented on card this year.

and last but not least no8
i really love the acrylic paint on the edges and again the saturated canary image and black and white colouring.

thanks so much for popping by, means a lot.
don`t forget to pop over to debbys blog and join in the fun.
luv coops xxxx

Sheila in Cyprus said...

WOW, these are ALL amazing, no wonder you chose 8 to show. There is no way I could choose a favourite but I like the simplicity of Card 5, the black and white one. The image is simply gorgeous and needs no extra treatment. However I equally love Card 7 and can see why it has been commented on most. Your colouring is just amazing on this, well on all your cards!
Wishing you and yours a Happy 2012.
Love Sheila x
