My Favorite 5 for 2014

Almost forgot my 5 for 2014 so straight into it.

This was for one of those special birthdays early in the year.
Just love that paper

This was for my nephews wedding last March.

Loved the simplicity of this one.

Had to include one of my Penny Black animals 

This was for a birthday on Dec 24th thankfully everyone loved it.

Now it is over to you.

Join me on the 30th December

The latecomer.

Hope you have all recovered from the Christmas feasting.
I was very careful what I ate but I did have loads of salmon yum!

This is one of those cards that didn't make it into a post this year.
Do love this stamp which is a Penny Black.
Also this woven embossing folder
so expect to see more of both.

I did lightly sponge around the edges of the card 
but can't remember what DI I used to do so.
The greeting is by Anna Griffin.

My 5 Favorite Christmas cards

Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
May you all be spending it with the people who are special to you.
I am being very careful not to over indulge
as I am still recovering from 2 weeks of a gastro bug.
Not a very happy place to have been.

Time now to pick out my 5 favorite Christmas cards
for 2014.
Not the easiest of tasks but here goes.

A quick and easy card that says it all.
As is my second choice as well.

Now no 3 this was for my grand daughter Rebecca
who as a child was so like Tilda.

What to choose for no 4?
The ever popular Mr Snowman who has been 
with me for more years than I card to remember.

And last but not least no 5.

The red against the white sets this off I think.

Now it is over to you.

White cream and........

This is going to be a very quick post today.
Afraid it has not been a very good couple of weeks
I have just managed to get a card ready to post and the heavens opened.
thunder, lightening, hail like you wouldn't believe.
All in the space of a few minutes.
The gutters couldn't cope with the deluge and it has poured down the windows
flooded the laundry so i have been mopping up.
Looking at the clouds there is more to come. is the card that I have to show you.

This is for 52 CCT and the previous that I chose is
Colour Combo #31 August 2014
White Cream Gold and Silver.
With the overcast weather it was hard to get a photo
without the silver foil card reflecting.
I cut 4 of the smaller die from the SB decorative labels 4
cut each in half diagonally then layered one section on top of the other
and layered them to overlap onto a square of the silver foil card.
I sponged the lacy edges of each with a gold Versa pad. 
It is one of those cards that looks better in RL.

Beautiful Blue

Hunting through a stack of papers in a box I found
the front of what had been a lovely writing pad.
Years old of course
A beautiful shade of Blue and thick enough to be card.
I have never been able to cut it up 
but I took a deep breath and here is what I did with it.

Oh dear the photo makes the DP look a different shade.
the DP is Maja Design.
The flowers are Memory Box Joyful Boquet
which I cut out 3 times  once in white and then 
with a scrap of green for the leaves and 
blue for the flowers.  I was luck enough to keep the petals intact
when I stuck the white frames over them.   
The stems  were white so I coloured with
a Copic marker.
I have enough of that blue card to make 3 more cards.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
