My Top 10 Cards for 2014

So, last year I did a post where I took a look at some of my favourite cards for the year.  I thought it would be fun to do again this year.  I decided to leave out Christmas cards as I just did that post.  :-). Without further ado, here's my top 10 cards (in no particular order.  Click on the titles to see original post)...

This card was made for a sketch challenge over at Inkspirational and won me a spot on their design team.  :-)

I love this huge peony stamp and how this card turned out.  It was a winner over at STAMPloprations too!

I made this card for Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking's Gallery Idol contest (going to miss that and PC&S so much!).  It wasn't a winner but I loved the challenge of using washi tape in a new way.  Yes, those flowers are made from washi tape!

My first Inkspirational design team project and a Top Pick over at STAMPlorations.

This card was going to be published in PC&S in the May issue before they shut their doors.  Its inspired by my wonderful Mom.

Another Inkspirational project and one that gave me some trouble.  :-). Received an Honourable Mention over at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Made for a guest design spot.  I just love how this turned out. Still makes me want to go someplace warm with a nice beach.  Especially now in wintertime!

This is one of those cards that just came together exactly the way you wanted it to.  It won a challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and was a favourite over at CAS-ual Fridays.

This was made for a good friend's birthday.  I love the butterfly and all that white!

I adore the Penny Black branch stamps and this one is no exception.  I was trying to channel my inner Heather Telford.  :-). She makes some of the most gorgeous cards I've seen.  It got noticed by Penny Black and was tweeted about.  :-)

Well that's it!  I hope you enjoyed walking down memory lane as much as I did.  Thanks so much for all your support and encouragement this past year.  Your comments really make my day!  All the best for a happy and healthy New Year!
