TLC359 ~ Best of 2011 ~ (1/9/12)
Welcome to this week's TLC! I am thrilled to be joining Holly and Joan as a TLC Hostess for 2012!

I am still recovering from the holidays - how about you? I have to find some time to take down my decorations this week. I hope that you will find time to play in this week's Technique Challenge, because it is a FUN one, and one that everyone can play in!

This week we are taking a look back at the "Best in 2011." Choose one of the TLC Challenges (#306-357) from 2011 and make a project using that week's technique! That's FIFTY-TWO to choose from and there is something for everyone!

Here are the links to the two posts that have all the challenges:

Be sure to list which 2011 Technique Challenge you chose in your description!

My Sample:
Bargello Coffee

Please remember when uploading to include the keyword TLC359 (no spaces). You can also add the keyword of the original TLC if you like.

You can view the entire TLC359 Gallery here!

Great to see you join the TLC team, Judy!

This looks like a fun challenge. I'll try to make some time tomorrow (or maybe tonight?!) to play! Lots of fun techniques last year. It is good to review them.

joan ervin 01-08-2012 07:46 PM

Welcome to the TLC, Judy!!!!! This is a fabulous first challenge....I will think about this tonight and play along tomorrow!! We just got home a few miniutes ago and just had to come say hi!!!

amyk3868 01-08-2012 10:15 PM

I decided to try a Z fold card from the TLC337 ~ Swinging Z-Fold Cards ~ (08/08/11) challenge. I did the easier version, which doesn't include some extra cutting around the center image. This was my first try at this type of card and I thought it was lots of fun!

I'm pretty new to challenges so it was lots of fun to look through all of the technique challenges from last year. Thanks for giving me a reason to go back and look!

GardenDiva 01-09-2012 04:06 AM

Congrats Judy...............what a great idea............but it will be a daunting task to make a choice on the technique. There are just toooo many great ones.
I'm finally finding the top of my craft table so hopefully I will get to play today.
Happy Monday all ! OK.........off to look through the techniques.

TreasureOiler 01-09-2012 04:36 AM

Oh my gosh, Judy! So many choices! It might take me all day to decide! LOL!

TLC359 Hedgehog Valentine
Judy- thanks for the potpourri of challenges! I went with TLC345 Pencil Me In- using an ordinary pencil for the spiky hedgehog coat, and colored pencils otherwise. I added 2 freeform hearts with paper piercing borders, and some ribbons and adhesive gems. Here's Hedgehog Valentine!

Finally .. I had time to try a challenge! I tried faux silk with a twist -- unfortunately, you can't see the twist which is the glimmer from the pearl-ex shadows.

Thanks for a great challenge - I had trouble deciding what to try!
