Top 10 cards of 2011

Hi everyone,
A belated Happy New Year. I hope it brings good things for you, your family and friends. I'm not going to make lots of resolutions this year because as soon as I break one, I tend to give up. Instead I have a few intentions. I intend to spend a bit more time with friends this year and not let life get in the way. I intend to try a little more photography and get to know my camera. I intend to try a few different crafting challenges. I intend to get a bit more organised this year and maybe even pluck up courage to chat on some crafty forums.

Over on the Papertrey Ink Forum, they have a thread asking people to review their projects from last year and pick their top 10, so I thought I'd give it a go, and in no particular order here are mine:-

And lastly using this gorgeous stamp from Lily of the Valley. Link to original post.

Oh no, I just added that up to be 11 cards and I can't decide which one to remove so this has become my top 11. Sorry. I also note that my favourite PTI Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores cardstock get a lot of use, as does monochromatic colour schemes. Perhaps I should have the intention to be a bit more adventurous with colour too.

Thanks so much for looking.
