Wow,that was such fun looking back on all your beautiful cards. Kelly, you are so talented and although it was hard, my favorite was A Purple Christmas. The colors and the white embossing in the background is so striking and I really loved it when you originally posted it and still do. Happy New Year.

Joyce said...

What a wonderful collection of cards. I think my favorite is that mitten card at the end. I have a thing for mittens! Happy New Year.

Terri said...

They are all great! I especially like the one with the angel and the mitten card. Both of those sets are still on my wish list. I hope your New Year is a great one!

They're all stunning but I'm partial to the layered house of your Purple Christmas.

The Paper Parade said...

Kelly, awesome style! The cute as the button is definitely my favorite, all the bright colors and the peapod...adorable! :)

Janelle said...

Oh, my goodness, Kelly! Don't know if I can pick a favorite... maybe I'll choose the Verve valentine. Love all the different prints on the hearts... and the scallop-y border at the side. And the delicate inking around the edges. Great work on all of them!

Sharron said...

Love your choices for this year--every one is so amazing! i won't even try to pick a favorite--each is so unique & special! Wishing you a very happy New Year!

Meredith MacRitchie said...

Well, I love them ALL... but the Baby Button Bits one is my favourite, because your paper piecing is perfect, and I love the colour scheme!! :D

Jenn said...

Kelly, these are all wonderful! Tough to pick just one favorite with such a beautiful selection, but I think your Baby Button Bits is a gorgeous stamped piece!

Marybeth said...

Oh my gosh Kelly, your cards are all amazing. I am going to need to stop by more often for some inspiration. I think I like the one with the hearts the best! . Your very creative! Take care.

- elbeth - said...

I love your style! Every card is so interesting, both in colours and elements. I find myself wanting to look at each and every one for a long time! You master both bold and sublte colours! (That peapod is adorable!) As a Swede, I enjoy especially the last "mitten" card. I've seen at least 1000 mittens and sweaters in those patterns in my life. :)

Amy said...

I think your favorite is MY favorite!!! Have a wonderful new year Kelly!!

Anna (doctorfoodie) said...

Oh my gosh, how could I pick a favourite from all these beautiful projects? I love love your last one most, but also the baby button bloom paper piecing one is so fun, and the Betsy colour scheme inspired one, AND the verve hearts (great layout!) AND the ATC with little snippet of gingham... I should have just stopped after the first line. ;) Thanks so much for sharing!

Victoria said...

Such lovely cards, Kelly. The button card one is so cheerful and I love what you did with the baby button bits flower. Fun, fun, fun!

BethieJ said...

Kelly they are all FANTASTIC!!!! Nicely done!!
Happy New Year!!

Ruth S said...

Wonderful round-up of your faves - perfect to reminding me of all your fab inspiration from the year, thanks! It's so hard to pick a fave, but I'm looking forward to more like these in 2012. Best wishes for the new year! Rx
