Favourite Five Creations of 2013


Here we go the years is nearly at a close time for my Favourite Five Creations of 2013 and this one is far more harder to cut down to five than the Christmas one.












Ok number 6 slipped in but I do love how my Ladybirds card turned out.

Now to be in with a chance of winning the candy all you have to do is make a post of Favourite Five of 2013 I don't mind if a few extra find their way in. 


If you have already posted your favourites of 2013 I don't mind you back posting but they have to be 2013 creations. I forgot to add the closing date is the 11th January 2014 so you still have plenty of time to enter. 
Then you have to link to Mr Linky here.

Hi Debby. I love all of your beautiful cards, but Balloon Puss and the Ladybird one are my favourites. I have just found your blog and will follow you in 2014. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

Annette said...

I love your selection Debs, and have been looking at the other entries too. Some gorgeous cards.
I'm afraid I don't feel entitled to enter as I only managed to whittle my favourites down to one per month which left me with 12, not 5, but I've had fun choosing and looking back over them and seeing how my creations changed over the year.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Have a lovely New Year's Eve.
Hugs

I enjoy looking at your cards and these are a beautifully made selection, my fave is the thank you card with the embossed brickwork, stunning! and love the layout.
I can see how hard it must be to whittle down to 5 from a whole years worth.

These are all beautiful Debby, but I particularly like the Anyone for Tea card because I love the brown frame and the flowers with the brown centres and the lovely co-ordinating papers, and the little girl is so cute. I also like the ladybirds and foliage against the white arch window with the bricks behind, who can resist ladybirds. x
