Happy New Year everyone, may 2014 bring you lots of love, happiness & friendship, may it bring all your heart desires & more.
We dont really celebrate new years anymore as for years me & hubster were DJ's so we would both be at work on New Years eve til after 2 in the morning. Now we just like to spend it with the kids & see in the New Year with them...........after all its what our year is about, our family!!
Anyway I'm here today with my Top 10 (ok so there are a couple more ssshhh) creations of 2013. I would have posted this earlier but I've been looking after my gorgeous grandson.
Speaking of my grandson as his arrival was the most remarkable thing to happen in 2013 I thought I would start my Top 10 with the card & gift I made for Arjay's arrival.
I made a card with a matching Hot Air Balloon, I truly enjoyed making these so much & was quite pleased with the end result.
The image is of course Saturated Canary - Butterfly Baby & is still my most favourite image that Krista has done & it can be used for so many occasions.
This was an old alarm clock that I re-sprayed & altered & it now sits in my bedroom. I loved making this & loved how it turned out. Will definately be doing more of these in 2014.
This I like because its one fo the first images I coloured when I first got the Tim Holtz distress markers & whilst I still need to practice I was pleased how the this one came out, I also lurve this gorgeous ribbon lol.
Of course those that know me know I lurve Hannah Lynn & this is my favourite this year, I love the colours on this & love how her hair turned out.
This is the last xmas card I made using a LOTV image & this one I really enjoyed. A lot of my cards there will be nearly always something I dont like about them, (my confidence on my card making is quite low, much to my family's annoyance) However this card I loved everything on it & was really pleased how it turned out.
This was a hanging I did using colours I dont normally use together but was really pleased with how it turned out.........its good to step out of your comfort zone.
I lurve vintage & shabby chic & love products from LLC & this one is using a lot of products from there including gorgeous Pion papers.
Now I'm not great at the male cards but this one I actually liked & it was for my son...........which I added 'Son' to later on..........if I make them in advance I cant always say who they are for incase they take a peekskie on here.
This is a birthday that I have made for my grand-daughter, she will be 2 tomorrow & absolutely LOVES music & dancing.........a girl after my own heart ;0) So I thought of this gorgeous image from LOTV. I love the frilliness & foofiness of this & I cant wait to give it to her tomorrow.
This one I lurve the colours, I love browns & the added warmth of the red just adds to it. Of course you cant go wrong with a LOTV image.
This is one of my favourite LOTV stamps, I absolutely adore this stamp & I will use it lots in 2014, as I plan on being prepared this year. Its also in my fave colours blue & brown..........I also love pink & brown & lilacs ;0)
This is a DT card using a Sweet Pea image which I made for Copic Marker Europe at the beginning of 2013 & this one I was really pleased with the end result. This image is gorgeous to colour & I kept the card itself soft.
Yes ok there are 12 but thats not bad from a whole year lol. I also want to show you this next one. Now I didnt like this card when I made it, I was not pleased how it turned out............in fact it never got sent out & I still have it in my craft room.
However it has proved one of my most popular christmas, so it seems a lot of you do like it for some reason. I have been complimented on how each of my creations are different & I will carry that on in 2014, making each & every creation unique in its own way & different. I never plan anything on my cards & literally go with the flow.
Well thats it from me I will be back tomorrow with a DT card.
I would just like to say a HUGE.....no MAHOOSIVE thankyou for your wonderful comments & your continued support. Without you I wouldnt be here & although I've suffered a lot with my health in 2013 so I'm hoping to bring more to my blog this year with tutorials as well. I have been asked for a few which I will do as soon as I can. 2013 was another eventful year for my family but it made us stronger & no matter what we face we face it together. So 2014 what ever you have in store for us we will face you head on, together & united as always. Love conquers all!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you again my lovelies, take care & keep on smiling ;0)
HUge hugs to all xxxxxxxxxx
