Lots of fun and bright colourful cards, Leigh. I just marvel at how you use so many patterned papers in your cards. I love the baby card and the flip flop card. But your chalkboard Christmas card is awesome too!!

I LOVE all of your cards. I love your style!! My favorite card is #6 Happy Birthday. Beautiful!! I love those colors together!

Joyce said...

What a great collection of cards. It's fun to see them all together. You really make such great use out of patterned papers. It's very inspiring. I've been off the grid for a few days, but I do recall seeing that you lost quite a bit of weight this year, and a big win at Mama Elephant--so congrats for those big accomplishments. Happy New Year.

Kim Heggins said...

Leigh, each and everyone of your cards is beautiful! It really is hard to choose just one as a favorite, so I have 2, July, those birthday invitations are just too cute and then December, that little village is just so sweet, love it.
Happy New Year!

Terri said...

They are all great! I especially like the one with the elephant. Super cute. Happy New Year!

Leigh, I love how you use patterned paper! You picked many of my favourites of yours here, but I think my biggest favourite from you in 2012 was your October flowery card. It's still one of my all-time favourite cards by ANYONE. :-)

Leigh, I think that the second one was published in CARDS, right? I remember when I saw it in there. My jaw dropped. I just love the heart strips embossed with wood. Your work is perfect and I just love coming here! I can't wait to see what you make in 2013!
