A Year In Review

Hi All....and Happy New Year.
I am participating in Karin's Blog Hop, A Year in Review, where I get to pick out my top 12 favorite cards of the year (one from each month). So here we go....
January - Love the background of the music showing through the violin

February - Again the background Versa resist, then dry embossed and heat embossed!
March - Love the colors of the Summer Essential embossing powders with the Summer Swirl Stamp Set.
April - Love the Fun Fold and that Rose Creations with the Crystallized Sugar Glitter technique!! (and it's green:)
May - the layout and the pointillism with the Copics is why this one is my favorite.
June - a nice peaceful card that reminds me of the Keys.
July - Coloring with Copics and learning different techniques.
August - Playing with my new Pazzles and creating a new Cut File with a plaque frame.
September - Again the Pazzles making a shaped card and the Cut File, also like the fall coloring on the butterflies.
October - The three layers of the ornament really make this card pop, along with the Fun Fold and glitter!
November - Again the dimension, the fold and I just love the color combo and those new Tuscany Embossing Powders.
December - Remembering our summer trip to California and the wine country...the background and the coloring:)
After going through the year I realized that I have really been focusing on my coloring with Copics and on creating backgrounds. I hope you have enjoyed this walk down memory lane as much as I have.  All the stamps and supplies can be found at Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Happy Stamping,
Jill
