5 Favorite Cards of 2015

Happy first Monday of 2016!! I hope the new year is starting out fabulously for all of you!! I just got back from my sister's house yesterday. She's doing much better after surgery...thank you all for your messages and prayers :) Thank you also for the birthday and Christmas cards/messages/wishes!! I tried to get around to visit yesterday and hope to catch up with everyone in the next few days. Is it just me, or do you have to click the "I'm not a robot" button now PLUS a picture captcha to leave a comment? I didn't start out having to do it yesterday, but after visiting quite a few blogs, I did. I had to do it today, too. The picture captcha makes me click on all the boxes with a gift box, or waterfall...it's quite annoying!! Is anyone else having to do this? If not, I guess blogger thinks I'm a spammer...great :/

My dear friend Sonia from Cards, Crafts, Kids Projects had a post about a 5 Favorite Cards of 2015 challenge at A Scrapjourney so I decided to join in. Here are my favorite 5 cards:

#5 - Merry Christmas Sled Card (12/19/15)


I just love the crackled sled on this card. Crackle paste is quite possibly my favorite crafting medium :)

#4 - Pink Celebrate Card (8/15/15)


Pink, flowers, bricks and butterflies...more of my favorite things :)

#3 - Happy Birthday Card and Gift Bag (5/3/15)


I created this gift set to celebrate my Mom's birthday :)

#2 - Happy Birthday Flower Card - (3/4/15)


I guess it's pretty obvious I love flowers and butterflies :)

#1 - Always Something to Be Thankful For & Every Little Thing Cards (5/6/15)


I love the pretty papers and the beautiful sentiments on these cards...and of course the flowers and butterflies ;)

Thank you all so much for your support in 2015!! I hope 2016 brings you much love, happiness and endless blessings!! Big hugs :)

Happy to hear your sister is doing well! I was having to do the same thing with commenting, I logged off then logged back on and then I didn't have to do it anymore! I think because I was trying to catch up on commenting and doing some copy and paste messaging it thought I was a spammer. Wonderful projects! Happy New year! Carri~Abusybee

What a beautiful year for you!

Lori Kobular said...

I had to click on the present boxes when commenting on blogs yesterday, but I am just getting around to checking everyone's blog now and I hope it doesn't do that again today, it is very annoying! I love all of your top 5 cards, and all the others you made last year too. You do such amazing work, each one of your cards is a masterpiece! I am glad you are back home and that you sister is doing good now. Happy New Year to you Lisa! I hope 2016 brings you much joy and happiness!!

Hi Lisa! I've had the same troubles as you with leaving comments - it's like they're trying to make it harder on us! I've tried to shut mine off - but I can't - it's like blogger just won't let me! UGH!! You chose 5 awesome projects - of course I have way to many of your cards/projects than 5 that I liked! :) I'm so happy your sister is doing so well - Hoping for more Joy & Happiness for you this year! :)

Healing Energy for your sister. I don't know how you were able to select only five of your cards...every single one you create is uber beautiful. 2016 will be an amazing year dear...

Robin said...

So happy your sister is doing better. I have seen that picture thing quite often as well. I hate it too. These cards are all so very beautiful. Hope you have a Happy New Year my friend. I didn't know it was your birthday but happy belated birthday. Hugs, Robin

Pam said...

Your top-5 are absolutely gorgeous Lisa! Yes, it is very frustrating to have to jump through hoops to leave a comment. That is one of the reasons I have cut way back on commenting.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with commenting~I haven't had any and hope not to have any, lol!

Your top cards are all STUNNING!!!
I have only had to do the "I'm not a robot" for certain blogs…I thought the blogger did this….am I wrong?

Dr Sonia S V said...

Each one is so pretty Lisa...you create such beautiful beautiful cards with flowers and dies...wishing you lots of creative energy and good health in 2016 my dear friend
Cheers
Dr Sonia

Lisa about the robot picture thing...I found out that if I was commenting on a lot of blogs in one go after around 10 or so it would make me click pictures and do a lot of work to prove I was a robot. If that happens one way to prevent it is to go on to other work for some time like and then go back to commenting. Blogger sure is making our blog commenting difficult

katieo said...

Happy New Year Lisa. I am glad your sister is doing well. I love all of your creations. I can't wait to see what you create next year.

Gorgeous!!! I can't even pick a fav!!!

Samra said...

Welcome back my dear friend! I am glad that your sister is doing better :)
Regarding commenting on other blogs, I did not do much commenting and did not have any problems...but I know that some days all the blogs all of the sudden have the verification on.
Your cards are stunning, but I have to say that every card of yours deserves to be the top pick!
Hugs

You sure did pick beautiful cards. It must have been very difficult to choose since you had so many lovely ones in 2015. Can't wait to see 2016's creations!

How on earth you have managed to select just 5 favourites from your works of art Lisa my friend, is beyond me! I wouldn't be able to do it. It would be like asking to pick your favourite child - impossible - I can't wait to see what wonderful creations you come up with this year ... one thing is sure, they will ALL be stunners again! Have a fabulous year! Hazel xx

Gwen said...

I can see why these are your favorites of 2015, but I would have had a really hard time choosing all of your projects are so incredible! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We got to spend it with several of our children and grandkids so it was fun. I also want to thank you for always leaving such nice comments, I read your comment and just feel like I have a best friend I have never met. Thank you!

Radhika said...

Love to see those card again.. :)

Larelyn said...

Happy New Year Dear Crafty Friend! I don't know how you could pick only 5 favorites since everything you do is positively amazing. Your unique style is dessert for the eyes. I've found those silly pictures pop up after you've been commenting on several blogs. You can "beat" them by clicking "post" right away. It's sad that we have to go through all this stuff just to send some crafty love. Looking forward to another year of amazing projects.
Hugs,
Larelyn

Mona Pendleton said...

They are all so beautiful Lisa! Love all the layers, flowers and fancy bows!

Kathy Krug said...

Don't know how you picked only five. I love everyone of them, but I love how you integrated that cute zipper into the card.

Rhonda Miller said...

These are all beautiful choices.

Brenda said...

Happy New Year Lisa! I am so happy to hear that your sister is doing so much better now. I don't know about the blogger thing, I haven't left to many comments yet. But I hope this isn't the case with the commenting stuff!! I don't know how you could pick only 5 favorite cards. All your cards are always so amazing, that I would never be able to pick just 5. lol I love the ones you did pick though. Hugs, Brenda

UTs Hobby Time said...

Stunning collection. So pretty and beautiful.

Happy New Year Lisa.

Shelly said...

These are all stunning representation of your work. I don't know how you could even choose. Beautiful!

lisa808 said...

Happy to hear your sister is doing well. Re that annoying verification that sometimes pops up on Blogger, your comments will still post even if you skip the silly questions. All of your creations are favorites! How you could have whittled it down to five is beyond me!

VanessaB said...

Wow, Wow, and more Wow! Your top 5 are beautiful! But to be honest all of your cards are beautiful and I don't know how you managed to pick just 5! As for proving your not a robot, yes, we're all getting it, but it's only if you do a lot of commenting at one time. When I start to get the photo questions, if I take a break from my commenting for a while (maybe an hour or two) and then come back, then it's usually back to normal again - until I make a lot of comments.
