Review of 2012

I owe the idea for this post to my dear blogging friend Kelly, who got it from Coops .. .. and as I've not got a card to share with you at the moment I thought it might be a fun thing to do.  You go look at the stats on your post listings and show the card or project that has the highest views and/or comments for each month in the previous year.  I'll just stick with the views next to each post for now and I'm guessing it's the total over all, even if the numbers seem to change in the overall stat listings ... who knows how blogger works these things out!

In January I made this card for the Lili of the Valley challenge for something new - it has been the second most popular card of all time on my blog with 276 views so far - and I must admit is one of my all time favourites too.

In February I made a baby boy card for the Marianne Design Diva's challenge with a cute image and papers by Eline - its had 184 views so far

In March I created a spring card for the Less Is More challenge for a one layer card with script - I used my old Elusive Images tulip script stamp and kraft card to stamp and colour my design, but I didn't like it even though it's had 114 views.  I went and tweaked it for this card, which has only had 21 views, but imo is much nicer!
I only posted 4 cards in April as we were at the beginning of the building work and things were all upside down, plus the garden was taking up a lot of my time too.  This simple card was made for the Less Is More challenge for a charm - it's had 49 views

In May I played along with the Less Is More colour challenge for a touch of yellow and created this daisy card with a simple background daisy stamp from Elusive Images.  It has had 207 views so far!

I only posted once in June, with this card for the Lili of the Valley anything goes challenge - it's had 98 views

I had a complete break from crafting during the summer months and only posted in July with an update on the building work.  Finally, come October I was sorted out and my stash unpacked, well mostly anyway.  Although my craft area is in the conservatory, it's not heated so I tend to work at the dining room table in the evenings .. .. and a down side is that my card and paper stash is getting damp out there so I may have to rethink some of my storage options this year.

I eased back into blogging with this card for the silver Less is More colour Challenge, and it ended up with 197 views! I used one of my very old stamps from Elusive Images and found the heat gun and embossing powders!
November's card has had 176 views and was my fantasy Charistmas card made for the Marianne challenge - and I won!
December's top card has had 101 views - a red and green Christmas card with an adorable stamp by Lili of the Valley

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my top view cards for 2012 - and should you choose to share yours, please let me know so I can come take a look .. .. I like being nosy!

  1. Great cards and easy to see why they are the top views. I'm going to look at mine... sadly, a couple titles of mine seem to draw a lot of spammers and one of those words is Happy... go figure!
