Happy New Year with my 5 oops 7 favourite cards of 2014

Happy New Year everyone. I am here to play along with Debby's 5 favouite cards of 2014. I was very good with my Christmas choices and stuck to 5 but try as I might I just couldn't narrow this down to less than 7 and that was a struggle.

So my first card is one of my favourite Sugar Nellie images. I am pleased with my colouring and really like the simple layout with some of my fave doodling too.

I love vintage style cards and this is one I made for a friend. Great sentiment stamp too.

Another boy's card as I love making them and the vintage LOTV boys are some of my favourites. I love the colours and textures. Burlap is a great favourite of mine.

I learnt to zentangle this year and I really like it. I am very much a novice but should try it more. I love the colours of this card too of course.

I have been enjoying making more cas cards, harder than they look and was really pleased with the way this card turned out. 

Another vintage card using one of my fave Little Claire stamps. The silhouettes are so effective. This was one of the samples I made for them and somebody liked it so much I had to make a Valentine card just like it.

Lastly but certainly not least is this cute Pink Gem image. I chose this one as it was my first magazine commission for Making Cards. I am so lucky to have joined the Pink Gem DT and designing for magazines is a dream come true.

I look forward to checking out your favourites.

A lovely selection of cards here Marianne. It is so difficult to choose just five when you make so many cards in a year as we do.
