My Favorites of 2016

Happy New Year!


May I be the first to wish you that on this New Year’s Eve!

I blinked…and there went 2016.  Whew, that was fast!

I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane, looking at the cards I’ve made this last year; sharing my favorites with you.  I hope you’ll join me!

Favorites of 2016


Moosing You wm 2

This was a difficult choice for me as there were quite a few cards I made in January I liked and would definitely make again.  In the end I chose this one because it was a very clever card fold I never tried before and because the moose cut file is so darn cute.


Mr & Mrs 2

Mr & Mrs 7

Again, my choice was difficult but I opted for this card and I can’t decide if it’s because of the front of the card or the inside.  I think the combination is a real “wow”!  The other contenders were from my post for the February Blog Hop.  I loved every card I made for that hop!


Lucky Clovers wm 4

What’s not to love about a card-in-a-box?  A close second in March was this February Blog Hop card.  Nothing so special about it; I just like it!


Thanks for the Lift 7

I just like everything about this card.  I think it’s a great color combination, a great card fold and a great image. 


Slam Dunk wm 1

I enjoyed this Technique Blog Hop, but I think this was my favorite of the group as it was difficult to figure out how to make that spinner track and I felt pretty accomplished.


Bon Voyage wm 1

This card was made using a free template I found on-line years ago.  I turned it into a layered image and just love how it turned out!


Hello wm 1

I normally don’t pick the more simple cards as one of my favorites, but this one just appeals to me.  I loved working with this technique.  If you haven’t tried it, you should put it on your list.


Sail-ebrate wm 2

I just love the colors in this card and I think the tri-fold is clever.


Ace wm 1I liked using untraditional things on cards.  Here the mesh really sets those tennis racquets off. 


Your Kindness wm 14

This black magic technique took me by surprise.  I didn’t think I wold like the look, but I liked it so much I made it in three different colors.


Pssst wm 1This is probably my favorite card of the year.  The technique is called layered acetate and it is so pretty in person and very unusual, too.


Thinking of You wm 1

I enjoyed working with this embossed impressions technique.  Not only do I like the card; I also like being able to find new ways to use my supplies.

 Well, that’s my line-up.  It’s been fun looking over the cards I made over the last year.  I hope you enjoyed taking the trip with me.  Thank you so much for following my blog.  I truly appreciate each and every one of you and I look forward to sharing my cards with you in 2017.
