Favorites of 2015

Hi!  I wasn't going to do a favorites post this year, but have been inspired looking at other blogs, so decided to go through my last 12 months' worth of posts and see what makes it into my top 12.  I haven't chosen one card from each month, but my 12 favorite cards.  Interestingly, I originally selected 23 cards and most of them were from the last few months.  I look back on the ones from earlier in the year and some of them really make me wonder what I was thinking at the time :)

Anyway, here are photos of the cards and a link to the original post:

Vintage Birthday - I don't do vintage well, and I was pleased with how this came out.

Dandelion Dreams - I like the ombre panel and the way the dandelions go across all layers.

Smooshed Tag - my first go at ink smooshing and I love it!

High Tops - fun card for my Converse-crazy son's 13th birthday.

Girlfriends - I just love the Girlfriends range and was happy with how this card came out.

Wishing - this card is special because it was for Freshly Made Sketches 200th challenge.

Muse Birthday - I loved this card when I made it and it was just chosen as a 2015 CAS favorite at SCS.

Pumpkin Girl - I love this image and I loved the layout of the card.

Zig Zag - Stenciling is one of my favorite techniques and this multi-colored one was a challenge!

Grid Thanks - I just love how the color went onto this embossed panel.

Poinsettia Tag - The Soft Stone background really makes this poinsettia pop.

Merry Christmoose - I just adore this moose and I love, love, love coloring with Copics!

Thanks for taking the time to visit, both today and during 2015.  I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.  I'm going to link this up to Lyndal's favorites post.

Fabulous line up, Karren - love them all. I think my favourite of all these is the Moose card at bottom - love the cute image, and your copic colouring is perfection. Looking forward to many more of your gorgeous creations in 2016! Happy New Year x

What a fabulous, and quite diverse, selection of your work in the last year. Your cards are always a pleasure to look at. I agree with you that sometimes when you look back at cards, you wonder what kind of brain fade you were having when you did it, even if you were happy at the time! Glad it isn't only me! All the very best for 2016 and I look forward to seeing more of you treasures in the year ahead.

I only saw this now, Karren. What a wonderful collection! Your cards are always so clean and pretty. I especially love Mr Moose. He looks so comfortable with all the pillows in his back and the hot drink in his hands. And he's so wonderfully colored.

Lovely selection of highlights from 2015, Karren! The smooshed ink on your embossed grid Thanks card turned out wonderfully!
