Before I get to the cards, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone! I hope you had a fun time ringing in 2013. This year is going to be great! Are you excited? I know I am!
To finish up my 2012 recap, I am am back with my favorite cards from July-December of 2012.
July 2012 - Click HERE for the original post
July was a REALLY fun month! I was super-excited to attend my first-ever Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was so amazing! I can't wait to go back again. This card has been dubbed the "traffic light card". The flowers completely reminded me of a traffic light the way I placed them. It was not intentional. This color combo is fabulous, though! It is saved in my book of favorites, for sure.

Ahhh, this card. This card had to be my most popular, most "Pinned", most CASE'd card of the year. I am still getting emails about this card, which totally makes me smile. August was an eventful month for me, as I had foot surgery on both tootsies. I was down for the count for two months and this card was one of the first cards I made when I finally hobbled back into my stamp studio.
September 2012 - Click HERE for the original post
This was a wedding card a family member and I really enjoyed putting it together. September was also a pretty special month, as it was when we rescued our little kitten Abby from the shelter. Her story is shared in my September posts. We originally intended to foster her but after about a
week , ok a DAY of having her in our home, we completely fell in love. She has officially been adopted and we couldn't be happier!

Every year, I bust out the Snow Swirled stamp set for a holiday card. It is my "go-to" holiday stamp set. Even if that set retires, it will always have a place amongst my stamp collection. This is just one of those sets that I think everyone should own and looks great in any color combo.
November 2012 - Click HERE for the original post
November and December were very challenging months for me in my stamp studio. Between work and my commitments at the animal shelter, time was limited in my stamp studio. My favorite card from November features another favorite stamp set, Day of Gratitude. Perfect for the fall season and super easy to fussy-cut the images. Love that!
December 2012 - Click HERE for the original post
My favorite card in December featured some brand NEW products coming out in the upcoming SU! Spring Catalog. Not to mention, this color combo from the Paper Players challenge is a total keeper. Perfect for so many different occasions, from holiday to everyday. Love it!
Thanks for stopping by and strolling down memory lane with me as I revisited 2012. I want to thank everyone who visits my blog and especially for the awesome words of encouragement that are left. You have no idea how much they mean to me. I am so excited for 2013! Lots of new things on the horizon here on the Stampin' Anne blog. I can't wait! Have a super day today!! :)
