2009 Favorites

Happy New Year everyone! I hope whatever you did to celebrate, you stayed safe and had a great time! We spent the evening with friends, bowling and playing games and now I'm ready for some stamping, some pork and sauerkraut, and some football! GO BUCKEYES!!!

In years past, I have enjoyed seeing some of my favorite bloggers post their favorite cards from the past year and I thought it'd be fun to do the same today! I never imagined though that it would be so tough to choose only one from each month! But here goes....I hope you enjoy! (Click on the months to be taken to the blog post that corresponds to each card!)

For January, I chose this card that I created for a card buffet at the store.
In February I was lucky enough to purchase some stamps from Our Craft Lounge for the first time, and this card ended up being my favorite from that month.
Tulips have always been a favorite flower for me, so my favorite for March was a no-brainer... this card using Kitchen Sink Stamps!
In April, I created this card for a Stamp Simply challenge and have always been very pleased with my Copic coloring on it. This was when I finally started feeling like I was getting the hang of using my Copics!
I was introduced to stamps from Magnolia this past year, so this card from May was a fave!
This card was for a Color Throwdown in June, and I initially didn't like the color combination, but ended up loving it when this card came together so sweetly!
This sweet Hedgie from July stole my heart!
In August, one of the Color Throwdown challenges was sponsored by Rubbernecker. It was another color combo that I initially didn't like, but loved once my card was completed!
I was also introduced to Whipper Snapper Designs stamps in 2009 and they're definitely some of my favorite stamps. This card was created in September for a store display.
I had so much fun making Halloween cards this year, and it was hard to pick my favorite but this witch enjoying her spa treatment was my final decision for October.
This card with another Whipper Snapper image jumped right to the head of the pack for November favorites!
And this card using a beautiful snowflake from DRS Designs in non-traditional colors was just one of my many favorite Christmas cards from December.
So there you have it! My 2009 faves! 2010.... let's bring it on! I'm ready for another fun year of stamping and designing!

Stay tuned! I'll have my card for the first Stamp Simply challenge of 2010 ready to show you in a little while!

Happy New Year! Did you have dumplings with your pork and sauerkraut or is that just a local thing in our area? Mmmm, mmmm! All these cards are great, Tammy, but I have to say December is my fav...I am partial to snowflakes! I look forward to seeing your creations this year! :)
