Top Cards from 2011 Part 2

Well, my vacation is totally over and today I head back to work.  I always get a bit teary eyed on these days because I miss the kids so much.  I have to get used to not seeing their faces in the morning again.  It is rough right now but I will get used to it--on the bright side my year is almost 1/2 over!  (trying to look on the bright side!)

Here is the second part to my favorite cards from 2011.  Yesterday I recapped my faves from classes I taught or my summer class that I took.  Today are just cards that I made for me.






This card is my favorite right now because I won the monthly challenge over at Whimsie Doodles and I am going to be the guest design team member for the entire month of February.  I am sooo excited!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I am going to look at some of my favorite layouts from 2011.  I will see you then!

Congratulations on being a guest designer! That is awesome! I always hate the first day of going back to work :( I could not get out of my nice warm apartment this morning! But at least it is half over, and its less than two weeks until the next day off! (Its circled nice and big on my calendar!)

Mary: Do you know exactly which cut file from the Silhouette store you used for your banner? It's the exact style I've been looking for!

Thanks!
