My Top Nine Cards for 2011

Karin’s blog  With an “i” for Paper blog  has started a Year in Review Blog Hop to feature some favorite projects from the past year.   I love the idea and decided to go through my posts from the last year and find my favorite projects.  I’ve seen some folks pick a card for every month but unfortunately there were some months when I didn’t post.  So I’ll stick with just with my top nine cards…ten seemed to be more t.

I completed 30 posts this year after starting my blog in October 2010.  I hope to at least double that number in 2012.  Hopefully my 3 and 4-year-old boys will be agreeable to this resolution since their cooperation is required for me to get any crafting done.

So I am posting these cards in the order of preference…my favorite card of 2011 as being #1.  I’ve linked the photo headers so they will take you back to the original post if you want to see any card details.

Hope you have a wonderful New Year’s and great start to 2012!
