TOP TEN: A look back at 2012!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It really was fun looking back through my 2012 cards. Here are 10 of my personal favorites. I put the date of the original blog post AFTER each photo:
1/16/12. Three cheers for the red, white and blue! K&Co. Americana DP.
1-27-12. I made this "Anne of Green Gables" card with Hambo stamps for their book-themed bloghop. My Mind's Eye (MME) Quite Contrary 6x6 DP.
1-30-12. The stamp is My Favorite Things Pure Innocence "Plane Amazing"; MME Portobello Road DP.
7-10-12. The stamp is "Winter Marci" by LaLa Land Craftsl MME Lost & Found Market Street DP.
7-10-12. Impression Obsession stamp colored with Copics.
8-17-12. I thought a hero's child could remove the tag and use it as a bookmark! I colored the vintage image (Digital Two for Tuesday).
9-6-12. Digi from The Stamping Boutique.
9-2-12. One of my favorite masculine cards. DP: MME L&F Portobello Road.
10-6-12. I'm proud of this one because I drew the digi (and it looks like my son when he was little). Paper-pieced with MME The Merry Days of Christmas. You can still snag the digi at my 10-6-12 blog post if you like.
11-14-12. I paper pieced and colored (Copics) this sweet image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps for my neighbors, who had their first baby in November. THANKS for stopping by today, and for your visits and comments throughout the year! Here's a link to the OWH Stars and Stamps blog so you can check out the other blogs participating in this little trip down memory lane! I can't wait to see everybody's Top Ten! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Oh Sherry, these are some great picks of your cards. I have enjoyed visiting your blog each time you post and admire your talents and your ability to produce such lovely vintage style cards. Something I must really try to work on. I love them but they don't love me. LOL. Happy New Year to you and yours.

Ohhhh SNAP! I LOVE your "we're only a flight apart" card! I've never seen that image/sentiment before, but how perfect is that for OWH cards! Your collection is awesome, and our heroes are lucky to have you making cards for them! Have a wonderful new year in 2013!

Hi Sherry,

This is a fabulous set of cards! I adore the cardinal ornament -- with glossy accents, correct? That was my favorite until I saw your wonderful rodeo card!

I have the ribbon and paper that you used in your first card and never thought to put them together. Duh! Thanks for the idea. :)

Sherry, you picked some great cards for your post today. I think there's a card for everyone in this collection. Happy New Year!

You must have had a hard time picking. I have always enjoyed the creativity you use in your Hambo challenges. I wish it would rub off on me. I want to try the sketch where you used 3 panels for the big flower stamp. Love it

Hi Sherry, every card in your favorites is a gem. I always love your paper piecing (inspiring me to try it a little bit!), and since I love Anne of Green Gables, your Hambo card is a favorite of mine! Looking forward to seeing more of your work in 2013. Have a great New Year!

Lynn said...

These are all so wonderful! I love your creativity. I really like that Christmas ornament card! Thank you for your inspiration. Happy New Year!

Patricia H said...

Sherry, seeing your cards is always a treat! I like how you've turned the that Marcy image into a wonderful blend of cutesy modern (the image) and vintage (the color scheme, the font of the sentiment, and the punched corner). The cardinal ornament card is simply amazing! Happy New Year, and keep up the super job you're doing for OWH.

Nancy Keller said...

That is the most beautiful cardinal and I love the idea of the bookmark on a card! Great thinking!!
