My Favourite Five of 2014


My favourites are in no particular order so to start the ball rolling my first is a Penny Black card. The thing I love about this was that it was one of the quickest cards I ever made. It was for a DT card and I made a complete mess of the first one and had to make one quick at the eleventh hour. So grabbed the coloured card matching the colour challenge and practially copied the colour inspiration photo.


One of my favourite papers are Doodlebug and add one of Mo Mannings Baby image and you've a recipe for a jolly good card.



I had actually used enamel dots and I had just started to get it along with sequins. Also I love paper pieceing the image and Pure Innocence stamps cry out to be layered like this.



I love Dr Digi images especially for Mens cards he can really capture the funny side their life.



I just love papers and how it all worked so well together.



Happy Birthday

Another card that after several attempts went in the bin the final one worked out so much better than the one inside my head.



Congratulations
Another card that looked busy but was a very simple card but it looks so elegant.



Thank you everyone who entered the Favourite Five Christmas Cards and I look forward to seeing your favourites of 2014.
All you have to do is to make a post with your favourites and link them with the frog. If you've already post your favourites of 2014 thats OK you can still add your link and join in.

Hehe, I've been super busy the past few weeks and just caught up with the fact that you are doing this 'Top 5' challenge Debby. I had a similar idea (and actually just sent you an invite to join!) of a 'Top 12 of 2014. I hope you'll link up your gorgeous cards with me. Is it okay for me to link my ''Top 12' rather than 5 here with you? Happy New Year hugs hunny, Wends xxxx
