Favorite Things

Several blogs are having linkup parties to post your "favorite things" from 2011--your favorite card or crafty project.  I have to agree with some others that it's hard to pick just one.  I have several that I'm posting below.
I made this for my daugther's 23rd birthday.  She grew up with cats, and she now has one of her own named Charlie.  I thought this image was so adorable, I couldn't resist it--especially since "she'll always be my little girl."  I later found out that this card didn't stay a keepsake too long.  Her cat got hold of it and tore the head off the little girl!! You can see the original post here.

This was the first mini-album I made from scratch all the way to binding it myself.  I was real pleased with how it turned out.  You can see the whole album at my original post here.

Here's one of the 3-D projects I made in 2011.  A woman at work used it for a gift box and card for her sister's birthday.  The cupcake is a card image from Hello Kitty.  Another 3-D project I really liked was a purse set from Forever Young. You can see more photos of that here.

And here's some decor for the kitchen.  This actually came out better than I imagined (although I apologize for the blurry picture).  It was made for a blog hop; the first one I ever participated in with Georgiana of Carson's Creations and still my good blogging buddy today.  Isn't that the best thing about blogger world?  Finding new friends who have the same interests as you?  You're ALL terrific, and I appreciate your friendships!

I made this card for my husband for our wedding anniversary. Loved the design and how it turned out to look like a wallpapered bathroom wall!  Love the inside too.

Sorry this is so long, just one more because it's just so darn cute.  How many of you like Create a Critter as your favorite cart!?  Well it's no wonder; it has the cutest images!  This is the kitty from that cart.  At the time I made it, I had no one particular in mind, but wound up giving to my niece for her birthday.  I just love this cut.

I am linking this post to the following blogs:
