Catered Leftovers

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that
for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.
The original meal has never been found.

I have a fun new "challenge" for you all, but first, we have some unfinished business from our Catered Crop Follow-the-Recipe #25 party. Congratulations to . . .

Maria Matter! Your beautiful Christmas card was the random winner for a $25.00 gift certificate to Texana DesignsJust e-mail at cateredcrop@gmail.com to claim your prize and have fun shopping!

 

Of course, before we shake (and stir and blend) things up a little for the coming weeks, we need to choose a winner from our last party. You know I never can pick just one, and there were so many, many fabulous entries. Here are just three of my favorites.

 


Jane Wetzel's card made me giggle. This is exactly how I felt after Thanksgiving's gorge fest! I love all the textures and yummy glitter in Maria Becske's card. And Tricia Traxler's card is just so sweet. You gotta love a reindeer bearing gifts.

 

 

At the end of the calendar year I like to an annual review of some of my favorite projects. It's sort of my buffet of crafting leftovers and it's a great way to reflect on the year and see how my skills have (hopefully) evolved. I love doing it.

We're going to table our usual Follow-the-Recipe parties to give our sponsors and design team a little break during the holidays. And, instead, we're just going to give you a chance to show off some of your favorite projects from 2011.

I know, we're breaking the rules. Most challenges tell you not to link back to previous projects. Well, forget those rules! Go back into your archives and pull out your favorites from 2011 – starting with your favorite Thank You cards from 2011.

As I mentioned, we're giving our sponsors a break, too, so there's no big drawing each week. But, I will feature some of my favorites at the end of each party.

So . . . here are the rules for playing  . . .  there are very few rules.

  • Link up your favorite Thank You cards from 2011, including, if you prefer, any you make this week.
  • Keep the party going and fun by leaving a comment on the projects of the two people who posted in front of you.
  • This party ends at 8:00 PM on Saturday, December 3, and we'll start another one on Sunday, December 4 (so be thinking about your favorite Get Well card for next week).
  • Enter as often as you'd like.
  • Feel free to leave a comment about why this is your favorite 2011 Thank you card.

 

Just to get the party going, here are my two favorite Thank You cards from 2011: Well Meaning Christmas Sweaters from November 17 and Christmas Sweaters from January 2.

 

I can't wait to see the best of your best!
