Faves of 2016

Hello! Here we are at the end of another year, I wanted to create a post of my FAVORITE cards from 2016. 

I started the year by painting Poppies and adding stamped images of this Bear from The Ton.

I joined the party at Virginia's View challenge being inspired by Marika using LACY SCROLLS stamp set and Zig markers.

Learning how to color with Distress inks and Ziggys on this one. Original post of Cuppa Posies

Was asked to participate at VERVE STAMPS for a new release. 

Did a LOT of coloring with Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia stamp and the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring challenge with Kathy . 

Joined the HoneyBee Stamps design team for 6 months.

Fell in head over heels with Concord and 9th stamps and found the owners, Angie and Greg to have a brilliant business plan and are very KIND to boot.

Continued working with No-line coloring and Ziggys.

Used a Stencil from STAMPlorations and colored with Ziggys. Participated in the IG hop with #thedailymarker30daychallenge.

Thinking of Joan, and missing her witty fiction How Stamping Destroyed My Life

Creating cards with STAMPlorations stamps and dies always seems to be a breeze.

I joined The Ton DT in July! LOVE this sentiment:)
