My favourite five creations of 2013

Eeek, even harder, hot on the heels of our favourite five Christmas creations Debby now wants us to post our favourite five 'other' creations of 2013. Here goes:

Although this card used a pre-coloured LOTV art pad image, I picked it because it's so sunny and cheerful, and I adore sunflowers.

This card, made for Moira my 'bestie', just makes me smile :) And it was such fun to colour.

A change from cards, great fun to make by just colouring images stamped onto white tissue paper and then gently setting the image into the candles by using a heat gun.

This House Mouse easel card was great fun to colour and in real life the sparkle and gloss looked pretty darn good too.

And this final card was inspired by Debby herself - if only she knew just how much of my craft stuff was all her fault inspired by her!

Breaking the roolz again - I just found this sixth card, made for my step-mum. Added it here 'cos it makes me smile, reminds me of the Playground for some reason and took me ages to make :)

  1. Di, I love each and every one of them!!! Great review of a year of wonderful cards.
    Sorry I haven't been around lately. Been a little crazy the last couple of weeks but things should settle down now.

  13. Lovely choice, Di, I like them all. I don't know that I would have been able to confine myself to so few because all your projects are lovely. However, the last one with the sheep is my favourite too - love the wooliness of them and, yes, they do remind me of the playground too :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  14. Lovely choices Di, I particularly love the sheep and the birthday card inspired by Debby too, but they're all beautiful. I really must give the candles a go, they always look really cool!

  18. Hello Di,

    I imagine it is hard for someone as prolific as you to narrow your top 5 (or 6) cards of the year.

    The candles are beautiful, by the way.

    Hi to Len - and Happy New Year to you both!

    Hugs,
    Kay

  20. A brilliant bunch of cards, love them all and did you know that the in-colour for this year is yellow, I got it from Brenda's blog but looks like you were in the know sooner with your first choice.

  22. I love the house mouse peering over that glitzy glass, and the sheep with the googly eyes. Also love the candles. I haven't tried that technique yet. x

  23. Hee hee. If Debbie only knew how much of my craft stash was all her fault. That made me laugh so much. I think just blog hopping is soooo bad for the budget. But so much fun too. Thanks for sharing the great selection of cards and projects. I remember most of them from the past year but it was nice to revisit them. Of course the woolly sheep had to come join the fun!
