My Favourite cards of 2012

2012 was a really bad year for us, except of course the birth of baby Niamh!! But I wanted to join in with Debby's usual annual post of picking her five favourite cards for 2012 (All her cards are fantastic!) and what a great way to end the year....Here's mine, starting with... January... and you'll notice I can't count!!!!
  This card was actually a birthday card for my s-i-l the year before, but I posted it again when it appeared in the Trimcratf Newsletter...
February I made this card using my own digi...it was double sided and had a secret place to add money or a  token

March you saw this Birthday card as a Quirky Craft DT card, my challenge and sketch. I just love Bugaboo!

April you saw the first one of two...birthday cards from my two dog sitting dogs to their 'daddy' The inside folds out. I made the papers using Promarkers.
 So, when May came along I did another card from the 'boys' to their 'mummy'. It was nice to see both cards stayed up long after the birthdays had been forgotten!!

By June, Lady Pam was a true member of our family and I sent her this card for her 81st birthday

July sees another Bugaboo card and some more of my Promarker made freebie papers. And I....
 had to add the Bugaboo Fridge magnet too and of course this Quirky Christmas in July card...
and seeing I love Santa...I gave it to Hubby John! And still in July....

August and September I was a Guest designer with Bugaboo 
so I made quite a few...
and added their little bug badge...
          to my DT cards...
 This one I think is my favourite! Love that wired ribbon!
  October brought us Halloween another Bugaboo
  and this SteamPunk fairy image from Stitchy won a few times and...
    My Bugaboo shaker  tutorial card won a few challenges too

In November I was making a few Christmas cards, another Bugaboo card
as well as thank you cards....and last but not least...
You saw this Christmas card using a  Dustin Pike's image, which I sent to my daughter in USA...
Yep, I know I've added too many....but never mind!
Wishing everyone who calls in a very Happy New Year!


  1. Hi, Lyn!
    Your cards are beautiful, I love the vibrant colors and your coloring is awesome.
    Thanks for sharing your favorite ones!

  2. I wouldn't be able to pick out just five of your cards either! They are all Gorgeous!!! I think the kitty card and Hedgie are my favorites! I also like the Ladybug card and Santa getting bit on the butt! Oh crap, who am I kidding! I Love them all! :)
    Hope this year is a better year for you and yours also! Blessings to you!

  3. When I got to card 9, I started smiling, but but the time I got to card 15 I was giggling out loud. Just another thing I love about you--you 'colour outside the lines' and make up your own rules. Love your choices but have to say I'm a bit biased in my choice of favourites--it would have to be the one I posted about in the showcase--your Bugaboo Christmas card. Although, I do have to admit that I really, really, really like the first two you put up. You have a way of taking papers that you would never believe you could put together, and you make them work.

    I hope this is a better year for you and your family. Best of luck!


  4. Wow so very talented! just love your cards and how colorful they are. Awesome.

  5. Absolutely love your gorgeous cards Lyn no wonder they're your favourites.
    Thank you for joining My Favourite Five of 2012
