My 2014 top 15

Thank you for following my blog this year and allowing me to share my creations.  I am planning to make fewer cards next year and concentrate on more sewing projects…well, we’ll see.

I have made approxiamately 200 cards this year and you can imagine how tricky it is to narrow it down to a few favourites, but here goes!  (In no particular order.)

Lili of the Valley stamped image and papers from the Bo Peep collection.


The papers are from American crafts and the digi from Kenny K.

Polkadoodles  made into a birthday card using DoCrafts papers


This is an Emma Canning digi, available from Polka doodles and the papers and embellishments are from Hot Off The Press.


I think this is my favourite.  The papers were from a Tattered Lace magazine and the digi is by Jellypark.

But this is a very close second!  Made entirely using a Polkadoodles CD, I did a lot of fussy cutting to make this circular card.


Wishing you all a happy and blessed new year.
