With 2011 coming to an end, we have a tendency to look back over the year and review everything that has happened, both the good and the bad. Karin, one of my fellow Sparkle N Sprinkle designers, is have a Year In Review Blog Hop at With an “I” for Paper so I have reviewed the last twelve months on my blog and I am going to share with you my 12 favorite cards for 2011.
Being a designer for Sparkle N Sprinkle the last six months has been an honor and so much fun, so I want to share my favorite cards using SNS stamps and products first.
Tri-fold card using Fancy Butterflies.
Spellbinders' 2010 Heirloom Ornaments.
Shaker Ornament using Playful Pengies and Tis The Season sets combinded with Spellbinders' 2010 Heirloom Ornaments.
My next cards use stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. When I first started to enter their challenges, I borrowed a stamp from a friend and had to be very creative with this one image to meet the various challenges. I was really thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer for two months this summer. Here are a few of my favorites.
Holiday Easel Card using Serve the Lord and His Gift stamp sets and Crocheted Circle Die from ODBD and 2010 Heirloom Ornaments, Standard Circles, and Layered Poinsettia dies from Spellbinders.
The remaining favorites use stamps from various companies whose challenges I try to enter as often as I have time.
I have collected House Mouse stamps for years because they are just tooo cute and irresistible.
Another one of my favorite companies is Impression Obsession.
My final card used stamps from JustRite .
This was my first Center Step card and one of the first cards I won a challenge with.I hope you enjoyed reviewing these favorites.

One last item - in reviewing my blog I realized that I totally forgot about my one year blogiversary. I plan to combine this with a celebration of another year to come in January. Watch for this because I will be offering some candy.
