Beautiful cards Jan! I don't know how you could narrow it down, they are all gorgeous! I love how you use the black layers, it makes everything stand out and look crisp!

Hi Jan! Your cards always stand out with beautiful, sweet images, great coloring, design and perfect layering. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us. If I start to take life too seriously, I'm going to think of that little chick scrubbing his back in the birdbath, lol. Happy New Year, Jan!

Happy New Year! Your cards are always gorgeous. It was a nice review of last year. Looking forward to seeing more this year.

Lisa Oliver said...

I could never have narrowed it down to even 12! I was surprised to see you had chosen a few cards that didn't include Copic coloring - which is an encouragement to me to CASE since I don't color :P

Thank you for the kind words you left on my blog - it's great to be called "friend" even though our contact has been sparse lately. I love the way you have branched out on your blog this year, good for you for pursuing new paths and hobbies.

Cyber hugs, Lisa

Jan, your coloring is so beautiful as always. I just can't imagine how much time it would take to get there. You are such an artist.

Thanks for your efforts for keeping OWH MWT challenges. I couldn't catch up all the challenges but I look forward to Wednesdays because of it.

Happy New Year!!!
