Top 10 Cards....

Gosh...it's been a long time since I was on here! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and that Santa left you all lots of fabby gifts.
We all had a lovely- if busy- Christmas. Spent lots of time visiting family and catching up with friends, and we've had Jon, Sam, and the adorable Poppy staying over.

I've seen various bloggers with their top 10 cards of 2011 so here goes...


The beautiful Bella Bunting..I luvs this little lady.


 Another Sassy image, this time Boho Chic. I really like the frame (WMS) around the image.


A much older image for this one, Leanne Ellis Luvvie.

A Hanglar stamp for Gayle's birthday card...I'd better make a really special card for her next birthday, she'll be 40 in 2012!


I only own this one wedding stamp from LOTV, and this was a commissioned card.


I love these stamps, this one is Hello Little Friend and was made for the Sugar Bowl Challenge.


Puss In Boots is another favourite stamp, and for this one I dusted off the Polychromo pencils for a change.


The beautiful Cinderella was used for the Sassy Blog Hop.


Ahhhhh...Pippi Longsocks, I luvs this little lady too and these papers are my favourite from 2011.


Another sweet fairy, Hazel and Nutty, and some much stroked Pion papers.


And finally...I started with Bella so it only seems fitting to end with the gorgeous Bella Bunting.

Oops! My 10 cards turned in to 11 for 2011.
Happy New Year to all my lovely friends and blogging buddies. I hope 2012 will be a happy and healthy year for us all, filled with love and new rubber.

Thanks for looking.
Love & hugs Elaine xxx

  13. Glad you had a good Christmas - flew by didn't it?
    Well it is terribly hard to pick out of these but finally it was Hazel & Nutty with those glorious papers. It's the softness of your colouring mimicking the papers that did it though it was almost Pippi & the frog pipping Hazel - better go before my non sense of humour (according to St R) gets worse. Have a lovely evening & all the best for 2012.

  32. Hi Elaine
    I don't know HOW you managed to whittle it down to JUST 11 cards, as ALL your creations are so lovely. I just don't know how you will top Gayle's bday card for (2011) in (2012), as your 2011 one was O.O.T.W.
    Like you I am too a big fan of those pion paper's (I only wish more U.K. craft shops sold them).
    Thank you for a lovely reminder of your FAB-U-LUS cards.
    All the best for 2012 , just CAN"T wait to see what masterpieces you create for us all to see.
    BIG HUGS
