The Top of the Crop ~

Hey all!  Sorry I’ve been so very absent!  I just haven't had any mojo to create anything this month.  Every morning I go into my craft room just to look around and feel good for a minute, but I haven't been compelled to sit down and make anything.  Hopefully, that will change in the new year!  With all that said, I thought I’d follow along with a couple of friends and choose my favorites from this past year of stamping.
Make sure if you choose to follow suit, to link your favorites post with Karin!  She’s the hostess with the most-ess of this fun little hop!

This past year, I was fortunate enough to work with the iCopic and Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long design teams.  Obviously, a bunch of my favorites are from my Christmas challenges!  As much as I love being on a design team, I’m looking forward to a 2012 without crafty deadlines – except those I put on myself.  I have to find a nice balance between family, friends, work and crafty time.  Plus, I want to work with all those stamps I’ve spent $$$ on and haven’t had time to ink up!  lol
Thanks for stopping by my little plot of cyberspace!  Hope to see you all link up too! I’ll try to not be such a stranger around here!  Happy New Year!  May 2012 bring you all health, happiness and a lot of luck!  ;o) lyss

The father's day card just blows my mind. The way you added trees and dirt--incredible!

Here's to 2012 where we both craft without deadlines and text more often!
