My faves of 2011

I am sharing my fave card makes of 2011 and joining in with Debby's challenge.

I am working backwards, I made this card last week and I love it. I challenged myself to use some uninked rubber and to use up some papers, this is what I came up with...

This is another quite recent make but I am really pleased with how it came out. I love the colours and used some of my all time fave 'boys' papers...

card was one of my first makes since being on the Whimsy Stamps Digi DT. I was really pleased with the subtley of my colouring/shading of the image and think the image is just adorable...

This card was made in September using a fabulous Chrissy Armstong image, I had trouble parting with this card as I love it so much...
I made the card below in August, the colours are quite bright for me but I love the yellow with the teal. I made it to say thank you to someone who did something very unexpected but very lovely...

This next card was made in June, I love the bright floral papers and of course the Tilda image...

This next card was also made in June and the one I am the most proud of, I love the colours and vintage feel to it. I saw the Elisabeth Bell image on someone else's blog and had to buy it straight away as I think it is so beautiful...

Ok, so not top 5, more like top 7 (hope that's ok Debby...). I have really enjoyed looking back through my makes of 2011.
