My Favourite Cards of 2021

 Happy New Year everyone!  As is the tradition every year on the blog, on New Year's Day I always post my personal favourite cards that I made throughout the year.  There is no particular order to these (just as I happened to find them in my folders), but these cards are some of the cards that I liked the very best.  I would love to know what you think of them.  Are any of them your personal favourites too?  Or did I perhaps completely miss one of your favs, I would love to know if I did!  All for now,  Sue x

It's 2022 and I hope everyone had a lovely safe celebration, I hope the next year brings good things your way.
Sue, thank you for the most amazing inspiration and new dies over the past year you really are the most amazing person, you've bought a group of crafters together that really feel that although we've never met we know we can share our thoughts with each other with your permission. It's been an amazing crafting year here on your blog and I look forward to the crafting year to come with new dies and new inspiration. I can't choose which is my absolute favourite but samples 5 6 & 7 are absolutely gorgeous, the rest - just beautiful.
Love to all today and for every day that follows, thinking of friends made, and missing friends and friends that are struggling xxx

Like Kitty,the African Animals 'Jumped out' at me. I've used that die a number of times as 4 of my Grandchildren were born out there and 2 of them still are in.Pretoria. I find it impossible to say which of the other cards are either more .
'Beautiful' 'Stunning' 'lovely'
'Gorgeous' etc,
I love them all in one way or another.
Have a great day.

Well I’m back, a New Year & a new start for me. To be greeted by such a beautiful selection of cards just makes my day. Thank you Sue. They are all too beautiful to single one out as a favourite.

Happy New Year to all Wilsonettes.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Happy New Year to you and to all the Wilsonettes. I can see why these cards are amongst your favourites and I had been drawn to some of them when they appeared on the blog, usually because of the use of colour.

I look forward to seeing your new designs in 2022.

Good Morning Sue On this very 1st day of 2022.
Happy New Year to Everyone.
What a lovely task you have set for us all today Sue ... although I am certain that some of us ... Like me ... will find it a difficult one.
I love all the floral ones ... well who doesn't ... but I have to say The Safari Animals took my breath away. All of them together ... So Majestic. Then in no particular order ... All of them.
There are not many cards that you show us Sue that I can say I don't like. Some are not my type of card but that doesn't mean I don't like them. All your cards are beautiful and I ... like all our other Wilsonettes look forward to more fabulous Particraft creations you bring us in 2022. As always Sue Thankyou.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.

I do like your choice of favourites, they are all beautiful. For me my choice would be any of your slimline cards as they made me want to make cards again

Happy New Year Sue. I hope this year is everything you want it to be. I can see why they are your favourites.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Happy new year everybody...A lovely selection of cards and my favourite has to be the birthday big bold sentiment one...However none of my favourites from the year have been included, so just goes to show how everyone has different tastes. Your dies and ideas however are so easily adaptable to suit everyone and provide loads of inspiration so I am looking forward to 2022 and everything that you bring us....

Fluffycat said...

Happy New Year Sue and all! Choosing absolute favourites from your cards is a moving target of impossibleness!! When I joined your amazing blog late August 2021 after too many weeks in hospital with sepsis, I started a folder with all of my absolute favourites from the blog. Almost every day, another card from the blog gets added, so that my folder is now full and I need a new one lol! If forced to choose, your floral panels are probably my current absolute favourites but all of your ideas and cards are stunning. Thank you so much for all that you do, it is so appreciated. Take care, Colleen xx

Happy New Year in 2022. May it be better than the last two years. My favorite of these posted cards is the "Wild Thing" card. It is speaking loudly to me. Thank you for sharing. Hugs

ursula said...

Wishing you a very Happy New Year too Sue, may 2022 be all you wish for.....My personal favourite, hailing from Africa, has definitely got to be the 'Happy Birthday Wild Thing' is simply gorgeous and so many of my family would appreciate a card like this...but, I love them all, you are truly an inspiration to us, especially to me, when looking for an idea, I pop on over to my Sue's saved cards and find one there to partially replicate.....thank you Sue, look forward to all your inspiration in 2022....luv and blessings, Ursula xxxx

CCM said...

Happy New Year to you all!

A great collection, all are lovely but my favorite is #2. Probably because I love the soft color and I have the dies you used.

Thank you, Sue, for your daily inspiration and for giving us a reason to smile every day.
Your blog is a safe and comforting place where we forget about our problems and see only the beauty of the simple things that bring so much joy to our hearts.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
