really love the last card of your favorites – but then so many of your cards are my favorites!
I always love visiting your site for inspiration. The mix of triangles and the flower is just gorgeous for your first card, but my favourite is the tulips… maybe because I’m hoping spring is just around the corner. Happy New Year!
Love all your cards, but the last two shown here are my favorites of the four. Thank you so much for another year of beautiful cards and helpful card making tips!
The Peony Bouquet stamp set is great!
What fun to look back over your favorites, Laura! I love them all. I’m inspired by your last card to use my foliage stamps in a fun, new way! Heartfelt thanks for a whole year of rainbows, smiles, and happiness, Laura! ♡
Your rainbow colored cards are always a hit with me, Laura, whether floral or geometric.
Never thought triangles could be so pretty. Happy New year!
It’s fun to see the “review” cards all over again. I still like them ;). Looking forward to seeing what you create in 2017!
Love the inspiration you share. One of my favorite Altenew sets to play with that you showcased earlier this month is Happy Dreams. It is a versatile set and so fun to use. Looking forward to more Laura inspiration in 2017😉.

Your cards are bright, colorful, seemingly simple but elegant! I follow very few sites but just signed up to follow yours. Happy new year and keep inspiring others!
So fun looking back with you over your favorites. I love those triangles as well, you can do so many different things with them. Thanks for sharing!
Those cards are all gorgeous. My favorite is the “you are the bestest” card.
Laura, every time I comment on one of your blog posts, I say the same things. Stunning. Inspirational. I LOVE YOUR STYLE!
Love all of your cards but the ‘you are the best’ is my favorite.
Love love LOVE the way you use colors with the Altenew stamps. You made me buy Sohcahtoa and I thank you for that, as well as your glorious inspiration!
I love your cards Laura! Thanks for the inspiration and for the opportunity to win!
Love these! The stamp sets are great!
I loved the card just using the leaves – and now I know how I can use what I have !
I loved the tulip card when you first posted it, and it’s still a favorite.
Lovely cards! I love how yours showcase Altenew’s graphic designs so well.
Hi, love your cards, especially the one with the geometric design combined with the flower. That is not a combination I would have thought of myself, great!
Your rainbow cards make for a happy start to my day! I absolutely love the triangle card and have the original post saved on my email.
You’ve designed incredibly gorgeous cards this year; how wonderful to see some of your favorites reviewed. The first, with the triangles/peony pairing, especially, catches my eye! Spending time at your blog has been a highlight for me in 2016; looking forward to more visits and inspiration in 2017. Receiving a card from you: only incredibly marvelous!
you’ve hit it out of the park again. I love all 4 cards; thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!
So hard to pick just one from all your creations, the tulip card reminds me of Spring time. Thanks fir sharing.
Beauitul cards– I especially love the tulip and floral shadow cards!!
WOW your cards are awesome!!! Love them all and Altenew:)
All great cards but my favorite is the last – so simple and clean but with such colorful impact.
How in the world could you possibly narrow it down? Yours is one of my favorite blogs to start my crafting day. Love your bold colors and fun style. And super fun videos. They always make me smile. Happy new year and can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.
Your rainbow style comes through so clearly in these four cards. They are all beautiful whether a floral or a geometric.
I always look forward to everything you post! I love your happy voice!
Awww…I remember them well. Loved ’em then, love ’em now. And altenew is my favorite stamp company. So many nice stamp sets and inks.
Love the beautiful color combos on these cards.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the geometric stamp when I first saw it. But I am loving what you did with it!
I can’t pick one I like best – but I do have a fondness for Peony Bouquet…..
Your cards are always amazing & inspiring! I have a different graphic set, so I’m going to watch the triangle card video to get ideas of how to use it.
So different and pretty!
You never fail to get your rainbows in! And I love that! I love rainbows too. I used to have (in 1974!) a rainbow sticker on my car’s rear glass. But it slowly faded over the years and I haven’t seen another one to buy. So I’ll be preparing some rainbow cards this year. Thank you for all your inspirations! Happy New Year!
I love the bold, rich colors you use.
I like all the cards, beautiful workmanship.
I just love to watch you play with color! And Altenew hasa some pretty amazing stamps to play with color with!!! (probably bad grammar, but you get it…don’t you?)
All of these cards were super star hits–you rock Laura! Happy New Year!

Love me a bit of Laura B on a rainy day!! Happy 2017 🙂

Gorgeous cards!! I just bought a triple stamping set from Altenew (the rose one that’s the monthly spotlight) and I am looking forward to using it. From what I’ve seen from the design team it’s has potential to make beautiful cards! I absolutely LOVE your cards using the sohcahtoa stamp set. I think that’s next on my “must have” list. Your cards are so cheery and colourful. They would brighten anyone’s day if they got one. Thanks for inspiring so many and being a bright spot in our day!!

Gorgeous cards and gorgeous creative style!
Thanks for sharing your favorite Altenew products – I really haven’t seen many geometric shapes used on cards (other than squares, rectangles, circles), so I really like what you’ve done with the triangle set. Very original, and the use of colors is gorgeous!
