Looking Back

I nearly wasn't going to do a yearly review this year.  But I was inspired by another blogger to do it and I'm so glad I did!  Here are my favourites from 2013.

I joined Bronwyn Eastley to form Still Addinktive, a card challenge blog.
We had a great team and some great challenges too but our blog was short lived unfortunately.


Another card for Still Addinktive, this time experimenting with white ink and watercolouring.  It's great when you try something new and it doesn't turn out as expected but you still love it anyway :)


Using my copics for a sketch challenge at Still Addinktive.


A clean and simple brayered card.  I always enjoy making them.


This was a great month craft-wise.
There were a lot of cards I really loved (so I just had to add more than one :) )


My son got married and I made this card for them.  My most pinned card ever, by a long way!


Was a big "crafting" step for me.  I decided to resign from Stampin Up and I was extremely honoured (and lucky) that Whimsy Stamps asked me to be on their design team. I was so excited to be a part of their team - and I still am :)  This was the first card I made for them.


Another card for Whimsy Stamps.  I just had to make it "punny"!


Another Whimsy image.  I love being able to colour cute stamps with my copics!!!


Another great craft month!  I was asked to be a Guest Designer at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.  I've had so much fun working with this group of ladies and I have gotten to try out lots of different stamp companies too :)
I can't just choose 1 favourite from this month either .

Maybe because I started making a lot more cards, being on 2 teams, it is harder to pick favourites?
So 1 for Whimsy and 1 for Bunny Zoe's :)

Winter Friends, Whimsy Stamps, Sylvia Zet, Wee Stamps, Christmas Card, copics

reindeer, christmas card, rudolph, wild rose studio, bluebell with poinsettias, copic

It was wonderful having so many different Christmas stamps to use this year. I like to give everyone a different card.

iris, sylvia zet, whimsy, copics, fairy, vines die, cambridge court, MME, magicial mini letter seals

whimsy stamps, sugarberry bliss, elizabeth bell. christmas

 I have been very fortunate to work with different teams of stampers this year and they have all been wonderfully friendly ladies.  I have also got to branch out and use different stamps from various designers (very cute ones too!) and use my copics all the time, which I love!  Looking back has made me appreciate even more how lucky I've been this year. And I think my work has really improved too :)

If you've been a long-time follower of my blog THANK YOU for sticking with me and if you're new, THANKS too!  It's wonderful to have some friends in blog land and I love reading your comments :)

Here's to 2014!  Happy New Year :)
