Year in Review ~ July/August

 july

July #1

Good morning!  The last few years after Christmas I’ve noticed many bloggers post their favourite cards of the year.  I thought that was a great idea and started to go through the 300+ posts to look for my favourites.  Not fun! HA!  So I vowed that each month, I would save the cards I loved in a file so I could do a 2012 Year in Review.  And I did! Whoohoo!  Some months have more than one favourite so I’m only doing 2 months each day. I had several favourite cards this summer as well.  The first one was for a Verve Diva Dare and I created my first “Keep Calm” sentiment with a Verve sentiment and a computer generated sentiment.

This second one was a true work of heart.  It’s actually a mini book I made for my dear friend, Lynn.  It was a PTI Stamp-a-faire challenge and a great way to relive my fun time Ohio in 2011.  See the full details in the post HERE.

And I couldn’t leave July without sharing my Dad’s birthday card one last time.  It still makes me smile :)

There was lots of love happening here in August.  This first card was for our friend’s wedding shower…I loved personalizing it with their names :)

And last, but by no means least, is my Verve Anni-VERVE-sary Challenge card.  I hosted this challenge. It was Verve’s 5th Anniversary so I created a challenge using silver and/or wood, the modern and traditional 5th Anniversary gifts.  The sentiment is one I sent to Julee way back when hoping she would turn it into Vervey goodness and she did!  See Stronger Love HERE!  This card went onto being my sister’s Anniversary card from her husband :)  Whew, this post feels like a year in itself! LOL  See you tomorrow with September and October!

Okay...how can I not pick my mini album! I was just showing it to Marcel yesterday...he was coloring with me while I crafted. Love the wedding card too...such a clever, clever CAS card.

I just love your dad's card! Made me smile then and making me smile all over again here :) Think the last one is a close second.

Gorgeous parade! I know I've been delinquent with commenting all week, please forgive me! Everything is beautiful as ever, but you know which one is my favourite, since I know where you got inspired! ;)
