Top 12 of 2014

Well that title is a bit misleading!  The lovely Wendy is challenging us to display our top 12 creations of the year.....Considering I haven't blogged more than about 25 cards this year, I couldn't find 12 that I really felt were favourites.  So I've gone for 5.  If you're a better blogger than me, you can join in with 12, there's blog candy on offer too.

March - I love the softness of this gorgeous LOTV fairy, love the fact that I used that very dimensional word i've had for over 5 years (it came from Lakeland & we know how long it's been since they did craft stuff right?!) and I love the fact that my wee cherub coloured it in for me.  She enjoys colouring but prefers me to turn them in to cards.

July - A special request this one, using the Stampin' Up truck.  I love that it's got layers but it's still clean & neat

October - made this for a very wonderful friend's birthday using a Penny Black lady.  My friend has dabbled in making cards herself & truly appreciates them.  In fact she still has this on display 3 months later....

November - I almost couldn't give this one away!  Another LOTV, I just love it.  I was reasonably happy with my colouring, attempted a bit of texture on the fur which looked ok but I just love the whole feel of it, it makes me smile you know?

December - Another one I made for a friend & I am not totally sure of the stamp origin so please let me know if you know.  I love the softness, I felt it suited the image and again it's one where I was reasonably pleased with my colouring.  It also went to a friend who makes cards herself so I know it is another that is truly appreciated & cherished. ETA - Thanks Wendy for letting me know it's LOTV but an older one.

So there we have it, my top 12 5 cards of 2014.  I hope you've enjoyed seeing them.  I'm also linking up albeit late in the day to Debby's Favourite Five of 2014.

See ya soon xx

Abi they're all gorgeous hunny! Your fairy is a Lili of the Valley fairy hun. An older one, which I think is out of stock now and a favourite of mine! I must dust mine off and have a play. I especially love your LOTV bear in a box too. Such a yummy bright cheerful card. Thanks for joining in with my 'Top 12 of 2014'. Huge hugs, Wends xxxx

Chris said...

Lovely selection Abi, what else can we expect from a genius? ;)
I have that LOTV fairy, lying long-neglected in a drawer, one of the first stamps I bought! The little bear in his cardboard truck makes me smile too!

These are great cards Abi and I like them all. I am kind of partial to that fabulous one with the great sentiment about people coming in and out of our lives... that's a good saying!
