2011 Retrospective

Operation Write Home is having a "Post Your 10 Favorite Cards" Hop/Challenge. What a great idea! I need to get back into the groove and what better way than to try and pick 10 cards I sent to OWH last year to display on my first Blog post of the new year. Keeping my ramble as short as possible, here are the 10 I picked to share in this post. Now I have to go get my first set of 2012 ready for mailing.

  1. I enjoyed seeing your cards! I need to try using my doilies more - you're inspiring me to do that. My favorites are the pumpkin pie mice - great diagonal layout with the layers, ribbons, and brad accents - and the little boy "Miss You" card - beautiful coloring job, and he looks great with the plaid paper and stripey ribbon.
