Default what is your favorite favorite?

I was just browsing through my favs looking for some inspiration for my
dad's upcoming birthday card and I began to wonder if any of the fabulous cards in my favorite file really was an absolute #1 favorite. I started looking and looking and looking (boy do I have a lot of favs!) and indeed one card did pop out at me:

this card by debdeb

I love the black and white framing, the color choices, the single corner punch on each piece making a circle in the middle. I love that the trees are made out of finger prints. I love the sponging, the doodling, and how all of the trees *point* to the middle instead of being upright (I would have put them upright and it would not have been nearly as interesting!) I love everything about it.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had a favorite favorite?

My alltime favorite card from the Gallery, and believe me I have hardly begun to crack the surace, is:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...y=0&thumcheck=

This would have been a lot shorter is I knew how to make a like and say "here".

Have a happy stamping day!

I love them both. With the thumb print I don't see the lines from the thumb?

Here is my choice. I have always liked it for it's simplicity. Used this as inspiration for my Chirstmas thank you cards this year...

I have neither the time nor patience to create this, but I love to look at it. I can't get over the attention to detail. Plus, I'd never even *think* of an idea this creative:

What a great thread! Gave me the opportunity to go back and look at my fav's. There are so many great ones (I changed my mind about 10 times), it was hard to choose, but here's one I just love.

Well, I must have changed my mind 27 times and I have to admit that I totally love all the cards listed above but I found that I kept going back to this card by Rox71. Clean, simple, elegant, love the way she added the scoring and the simplicity of the black and white. I could easily list another dozen but this is really my 'favorite' favorite.

Wow.. this is really a hard decision.. so many talent here and in my favs folder

But if I have to, I would say that this is my favorite fave:
'Celebrate' by Flaxychic

I adore the fresh bold colors and the layout.. for me this is a perfect card

Red face Hard to choose!

This is a wonderful card that I loved since I first saw it:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/.../photo/1243379

There were so many in my top 10, it was difficult to narrow it down to my favorite of the ones in my favorites. However, this is in the top three for certain!

kind of off-topic, but i was going through my fav's; the last few pages mostly, and removing some of them. MAN has my taste in cards changed!!! Holy crap.. But what I discovered is there is no easy way to delete multiple cards from your album.. you have to delete, then either QUICKLY press the back button, OR, it goes to the first page of your fav's, then you have to go to the page you were on and start the whole process over..

I guess the cards you put in your favorites were just meant to stay there forever...

Great thread! I loved going through and seeing what everyone else likes - and how different our tastes all are. I also started removing some favorites. Not because I don't like them anymore, but my tastes do change, or sometimes I just don't have that particular stamp set anymore.

Anyway, I've always loved this one by Michelle Zindorf. I have many of hers in my gallery, but this is my favorite. She's also one of my favorite stampers, and really changed how I think about ink and color.

I have so many cards in my favs that I can't remember why I put them there. If I could just categorize them.... "color combos I like" "great sketch idea," "love the way that stamp was used," "cool technique!" then maybe I wouldn't feel the need to purge some of them. Oh well!

Back on topic!! wow are some of these cards amazing! I've faved several of them myself. Thanks for sharing, I'd love to see some more!!!

I asked that question on the Site Suggestions & Questions, maybe if it was bumped, or more people showed interest in this, it might happen.

I have 20 pages of favorites. Too hard to pick only one.

I really like this one because it is just so cute:

Open each card in its own tab (right click), then click the heart off, and voila! Close the tab and you're right back where you started.

I was the same, and then I realized that the poster of the card would probably enjoy a comment, so now when I save to faves, I add a comment about what it was in particular that I liked about the card. That way, when I open it again, I can remind myself!
