My Favourite 5 Cards of 2014

Well I hope everybody enjoyed New Year's Eve, however you decided to celebrate (or not) and that you're not suffering for it today ;)

I've been having a little break from crafting and blogging while Christmas has been upon us, but I'll be back with regular DT posts next week. In the meantime I'll be drawing my Butterflies and Bling Candy winner tomorrow, so you still have a few hours to enter if you haven't already, and I'll be hosting another giveaway this weekend.

Last year I joined in with Debby's 5 favourite Christmas cards, but I'm a little late for that one this year, however I'm not too late for the my 5 favourite cards of 2014.   Let me tell you, this one was hard!

To be honest, I didn't realise quite how many cards I had made until I had a look back......I'm not quite sure where I found the time! lol

Anyway in no particular order (and honestly, there were several others I could have chosen instead) my 5 favorites are:

Well I guess it comes as no surprise that there's a Saturated Canary image among my top 5 (in fact there's 2) This one is coloured in Copics and I loved her with these bright colours.  You can find the full post here.

2nd up is another SC make. This time coloured with Distress Inks, I love the softness and vintage feel to this in contrast to the previous make. You can find more pics here.

It's no secret that I normally hate making boy cards. They are without doubt my Kryptonite.  But I've included this one because I was soooooo happy with the way it turned out, it's the best 'boy' card I've ever made and one of my best cards overall I think. The full details can be found here.

For a complete change, this card had no stamped and coloured image, but a printed vintage photo.  I was really pleased with this one and aim to make more vintage style cards like this in 2015. You can find full details of this one here.

The last one was the most difficult, there were several wedding/anniversary cards I really loved and also lots of my beloved Tildas, but in the end I chose this one because I really liked the contrast of the femininity of the dress and flowers and the masculinity of the gears. Plus I do love me a bit of steam punk and don't get to dabble very often.  You can find  more of this here.

Well that's all from me, if you want to play along you can find Debby's original post by following the link below.

Have a great 2015! :) xx

  3. What a fabulous compilation of cards, Linda! Love them all so much and I think you have made a lot of others very beautiful cards the last year!
    The first card is my favourite, love the bright colours, the sweet image perfectly colouring and the gorgous background paper is stunning with it's stiched edges ( love so much Ambrosia papers by Bo Bunny) The trim around the oval looks great with all the details.
    I wish you a Very Happy New Year!

  5. Your cards are always a delight to see! I love them so! I would love to participate in your blog candy but I am still trying to put the link on my blog. I am not very good with computers, so it takes me awhile to figure some things out! Anyway, I wish you the very best in this new year!

    1. Patty just enter and don't worry about the link for now. You always leave me such lovely comments that I'd hate for you to miss out on the chance of winning on of my giveaways, so I think I can excuse the omission of a link from you since the giveaway is tomorrow :) xx

  7. I would think it was a very difficult task to choose just five of your beautiful creations from last year, they have all been stunning. I hope that 2015 brings you joy, happiness and good health and look forward to seeing what you create in the coming months.

  8. So much beauty and joy within this post! Each card is exquisite beyond words... your talent is endless and you are a shining star in this crafty community. Stunning creations, Linda! :o)

  9. Happy New Year Linda! I hope 2015 has lots of fantastic things in store for you :) I don't know how you managed to narrow it down to five because your cards are always so gorgeous but this is definitely a stunning selection and I love the diversity!

  10. Oh my goodness - how awesome are these cards?!?! I will tell you - they are incredibly awesome!! MY favorite has got to be the boy on the Big Wheel bike - that card is just so cool!! Way to go - you have a gift not only for coloring and stamping bit for making works of art with them!! Awesome job!!!
