Favorite Cards of 2012 - July through December

Happy New year everyone!!   So glad for 2012 to be over. Done. Gone.  Can you tell it wasn't a good year LOL!  Hoping 2013 will be a much better year!  

Today's post covers my favorite cards of 2012 from July through December.  It is always such fun going back through the year and seeing how your style has progressed, changed and grown.  Be forewarned, I had a hard time narrowing things down so there are a lot of cards in this post.

Happy new year, Marisa! I enjoyed your card parade. LOVE the black and white washi tape you used on a couple of them, and my fave in the lineup is the gold and white Christmas card with a 3d tree. Amazing!
