My Top Ten Cards of 2010

What a brilliant idea! Click the image below to visit Suzi and read all about it:


So, without further ado, here are my top 10 cards of 2010. Well, of most of 2010 -- I started blogging in March, and I'm too lazy to go find photos from earlier :) And...well, I have a hard time knowing when to quit, so you get my top 12. Enjoy!


Inspired by a1953 grammar manual, of all things.


Won a Moxie Fab challenge with this one!


One of my SCS CAS DT entries...


...and another one. This one still lives on my desk :)
(No, I didn't make the team. I did, however, make some awesome friends!)


The pattern mix still makes me smile.


Who doesn't love a pun? Especially a CAS pun.


Ha. Ha ha. Plus, the recipient loved it.



Made this as part of my Guest CAS DT week. Who doesn't love sparkly socks?


The vellum polaroid is awesome, if I do say so myself.


This card came together so quickly, it was scary. Plus, it was for an eye doctor (my uncle).


Another 10-minute kind of card, this time with a big "Rawr!"


This one uses some fun AmberInk iPaper for a mod twist on Christmas.

Hmm. Apparently, I have a thing for hand-cut hills (3 cards), humor (5 make me chuckle still), firmly grounded focal points (7ish cards), and always, always CAS (11/12 cards, by my estimation).  

It's fun to scroll back through and see the seasons (and my photo-editing skills!) change via cards. I'm glad I have this little bloggy-doo to help me keep tabs on all the paper-crafted memories. 

Here's to a 2011 full of more paper goodness!

PS: If you haven't already come from there, Suzi's blog has the full list of participants. Have fun!

All righty, it should be fixed. I hope!

Okay...I can see them and it was worth the wait! I hadn't seen half of these before and NO WONDER you carried that orange torch! They are fantastic. I love your wrap up and that spooky one has SUCH a great line!

I'm so happy to get to see all these again! I still remember the ones you made for the SCS CAS DT challenges. 'Fly Away With Me' is one of my all-time favourites of yours. Then there's that AMAZING kettle one!! The grammar manual one is so simple yet genius. Thanks for sharing your top cards, Ang! :D

Karen H. said...

Awesome cards. Some of these are still my favorites too, lol. Your stem kettle is just too perfect; and I love the Fly Away one. The first one just blows me away - I love the graphic feel of it and would never have thought it came from a book cover! Thanks for sharing the recap!
