Favorites for 2011

I saw Rita over at Rita's Creations post her favorites tonight, and she mentioned she had seen other bloggers doing it also, and I thought, why not! Its a quiet night in our boys are watching TV, hubby is already asleep because he has to be in the ER at 4am for work and the daughter is with her boyfriend, so I might as well go back and look at my cards and see which ones I liked the best :)


This card was meant to convey a lot of emotion to my step mom, as we had just lost my dad to cancer in Oct.2010. I love the bright cheery colors I used and the birds make me smile. My step mom loves birds, as do I, so I knew this card would bring a smile to her face also.


I love the color combo on this card and while I know a lot of folks don't care for this sock monkey stamp I get a big kick out of him. A nice CAS card.


Yep, a Christmas card! I remember I wasn't too sure about the sketch when I saw it, but in my opinion this card turned out very fun.


Yes, its another Christmas card. I adore Christmas cards and make them all year long, what can I say. This is one of my favorite stamp sets(I just used it to make a New Years card!). For me its the combo of the colors and the serene scene that just makes me love this card.


If there was ever a card I made that screamed "THIS IS TOTALLY LISA" then this card is it. Moose, green, outdoorsy....yep, this card is totally me!


Ok, I can hear you groaning, but I am choosing another Christmas card. I love snowmen, I love the colors I used...I just love this card!


Hey, look, its not a Christmas card! LOL I remember liking how unique this Splitcoast sketch was, and I like the DSP and colors I chose. I gave this card to one of my closest friends and she loved it, which made me happy :)


Dang it, I cant help myself. I adore penguins and I think this card came out super-fun and super-cute!

This is a card I made for a Friday Mashup challenge. This card was so easy to make, between using the Cricut and SU products, and I was really pleased with how it came out.


I made this card for Pink Week, and it was for my step mom, who is a breast cancer survivor. I like it because I went out of my comfort zone for it...I am not a fan of pink or "girly" looking cards, so when I do a card with those themes and it comes out nice I am pretty surprised, and happy!


I love the DSP, the colors, everything. I think it might be my favorite card of the entire year.


Since its December its safe to pick a Christmas card ;) I made my first real shaker card and I just love this little scene I created. Penguins, I just love them!



  1. I love them all, Lisa! I love Sock Monkey and am always glad to see another fan. :) I love the May card! I recently added two new stuffed animals to my moose collection; I'll have to take pictures. Happy New Year!
