Top Five(ish) of 2013

Hello again! 

Well here I am, with my last post of 2013 and I wanted to share with you what have been my favourites of the year. Well, they're my favourites as I write this. I could have chosen more.

My favourite Tiddly Inks stamp and quite possibly my most used stamp EVER. This was my first attempt at cropping the image and using just a head shot but I was so pleased with how it turned out.

A very simple card, literally thrown together when I got back home from the SECC in October with some new stash! Simple but I love it.

A card with slightly more thrown at it. This was a DT card for That Craft Place and the theme was stitches. So I decided just to go a bit wild!

Another DT card but this time a card that was actually made for the lovely Sandra's daughter. It's my first ever Time for Tea Designs image and I need to get some more in the new year!

A card for Scott using Jake from Visible Image.  He loved it and declared his day to have been AWESOMELY EPIC.

And last, but certainly not least, Craig's birthday card. This Kraftin Kimmie image reminded me so much of Craig on the computer/games console and I found the bubble sentiment in some long forgotten stash and it just seemed so appropriate.

So that's it. 2013 in a nutshell. I've had some highs, I've had some lows but you know what, you guys have been there and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it (not least because I know I'm not talking to myself)

It's onwards and upwards for 2014! Things are going to get better :D

I'm off to prepare the house for our Hogmanay party later so as my Mum would have said - "lang may yer lum reek".....

Have a good one!
