Hi!  Still celebrating my first anniversary of blogging here.  This is my last round of "Favorites From The Past Year" for you to see before the Blog Candy Giveaway!  It's a way of saying 'thanks' for reading my blog. 

Okay, here we go!  These cards are from February - May 2011.  Just click on a picture to go to the original post.

















Wow, I have a lot of favorites.  ;)

For putting up with my endless parade of favorite cards, I have some Blog Candy to offer one lucky commenter.

To be entered into the drawing, just leave me a comment - let's say maybe one of your favorite cards of mine from this past year - before 11:59 PM EST Saturday, June 11, 2010.  I'll randomly draw one lucky winner and announce the name on Monday, June 13, 2011.  The winner will have 72 hours to contact me via email at bcdietrich@verizon.net with a mailing address.

Congrats on your first year, Colleen! I remember when you first started out! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies. I think my favorite card is the last one you posted - the B & W with the green butterflies. Loved it then and loving it all over again here :)

How do you pick a favorite out of those? I think mine has to be the emboss resist card. The week after I saw it, I began doing some simple emboss resist cards because I was so inspired!

wow, I love them all, but the chandelier is my absolute fav!

Vicki Dutcher said...

I'm with KopyKat - I adore that chandelier card. i am on the fence about buying one... like I need more stamps~ I sure could use your blog candy though....pick me! pick me! LOL

hi Colleen, I can see why you have so many favorite cards!! They're all so beautiful. I think my fave from this batch would be the last one - the embossed butterflies & your design are very eye catching. Love how you use edge punches. Your designs are all inspiring!! Thanks for the chance to win. :) :)

Congratulations once again on your Blog Anniversary, Colleen!! One whole year of blogging--that's just amazing! I love coming by your blog to see what you've been creating. My favorite posts are ones where you show what inspired your creation. You find inspiration in the most interesting places!! As for a favorite card of yours?? How could I choose just one!!! I love the wide variety of styles that I see here. I never know what I'm going to find--and I love that. :D Keep up the fabulous work. Here's to many, many more Blogoversaries!!!

Hey there BD Buddy! How's my Punchin' Pal? Like Emzi, I love the fun sources of inspiration that you find for your wonderful cards. My fave is easy - both of the St. Patrick's Day cards are awesome, but I especially love the Washing O' the Green card. Hugz. :)

My favorite card of yours is the Dublin Door. I also think it's the first time we found each other~ :-) That is one fantastic card. I have many other cards of yours that are favs, but that always sticks out first in my mind.

Kay said...

April 9 Emboss Resist is my favorite of this batch. First, the colors are my favorite. I am on a butterfly kick right now, and I absolutely love the white one on this card. Ribbon and pearls are great, too! There is so much inspiration here, it will keep me busy for weeks to come. Thanks!

Pauline said...

Colleen, it's so hard to pick an absolute favourite from all your lovely creations, but the one that sticks in my mind is the one that was inspired by a dental hoarding, from May 14th here!

Congrats on your blogaversary, keep on creating! xxx

So, are you going to disqualify me since I can't pick just one favorite out of all your favorites? Well, I can't pick just one! Each card has some special element to it to love.

Happy blogaversary and will await many more wonderful creations!

Hugs,

Chris R. from Iowa

Gorgeous collection of cards! Your chandelier card is my favorite, however. I loved it then and I love it now! What a great retrospective, Colleen!

Congratulations on ONE year! I remember when you just started and I was so impressed and with each blog you amazed me everytime! Your creativity is outstanding! And love your descriptions and details of each card. Keep up the great work...look how far you have come in just one year!

Ohh, my favorite card is of course the one that was sent to me personally by YOU for our engagement! We only received a few cards, and it was the ONLY one hand crafted just for us!! And I love purple :)

Sian Ridley said...

Hmmm.......I think that your latest colour splash challenge card made for Sarah Anderson's farewell blog hop has to be my favourite of your favourites-it's very me!! However, the chandelier card comes in at a close second!

Happy Blogaversary and thank you for sharing your creations with us all! :)

Hi Colleen, thanks for offering such great blog candy! I absolutely adore your Whimsical Village card. I think it is such a cute take on that stamp. The interesting shape of the design from the Mojo Monday sketch really shows off this stamp set to perfection.

Bumblebee said...

Having seen all your favourites, I still love the simplicity but stunning effect of your die cut butterflies which are embossed. beautiful. Heres to many more years of crafting and blogging!

I can't pick a favorite it is too hard! OK I'll try... I love the black, white, & green butterflies as well as the green pink & lilac image! It was a tie! Does that mean we might win our favorites!

So, so many beautiful cards to pick one; but I really LOVED that bold, floral take above, with the white background! Plus, it won several, if I remember right, recognitions; so, I wasn't the only one that fell in LOVE with that gorgeous creation! Congratulations, girl! And thank you ever so much for the chance to win!
