Debbie from Scrapjourney is hosting a Favourite Five challenge today and, since I've had little chance to be anywhere near my table of craftiness it seemed like the perfect opportunity to share some (well, five to be exact) of my favourite makes of 2014. I looked through the cards I made in 2014 and, right at this minute I picked five favourites. Of course, if you asked me tomorrow there might be a different selection - before I change my mind ..... here they are:-
|I made this card in August and I just LOVED the quirkiness of the sentiment|
This card was for a pal who'd been looking long and hard for a new job
|In September I loved the Visible Image image with the red tinsel embossing powder|
I haven't embossed much for years but 2014 saw a bit of a rediscovery!
|The simplicity of this card appealed to me in September|
|This was a fun technique I stumbled across in September|
and fell in love with
|New stash in November made this another favourite|
You can see my five faves came from more recent makes - I was working backwards, who knows how differently this selection might have turned out if I had started in January and worked forwards?!
Yesterday morning we woke up to a bit of a white out .... no, not snow, but a thick white frost - spookily enough though .... it was gone by 10:00 - not even a bit of it left!! It doesn't show particularly well but the roof you can see SHOULD be dark brown tiles not white!
|We even had frost on our open bedroom window - brrrr|
Last night saw us entertaining the troops - well there was certainly enough food to have done just that but not, there were only seven of us!!! No Harry or Zac this time - Harry was with his other grandma and Zac's been under the weather so a quiet night in with a babysitter was perfect to keep him calm and give us grownups free reign - maybe not SUCH a good idea!!! My hubby, the caterer, decided on a hot and cold buffet and I'm good with that - I even cleared my die cutting and colouring equipment from the dining room in preparation and broke out the beautiful table runner Wynneth so kindly made me a while ago.
|Still looking remarkably like Christmas!|
|How much food?|
|Becky, Dawn and Nicky|
|Chris, Alan and friend????|
HOWEVER, I have a couple of pal's who are poorly right now with chest infections so Chris and Wynneth - feel better soon peeps.
I would like to wish each and every one of my readers and followers a very Happy New Year, here's to 2015!
|Let's hope it's a good one!|
