Top Ten Favorites from 2014

Happy New Year!!  I hope you have enjoyed Christmas.  It's hard to believe 2014 is history and 2015 is here.  As a way of saying goodbye to 2014, I thought I'd post some of my favorite projects from the past year.  Clicking the card titles will take you to the original blog post for full card details.

Building Block Valentine - My hubby is so supportive of this addiction hobby and patiently answers my "what does this card need?", "do these colors clash?", etc.  I try to use special folds or techniques when making cards for him.  This was his Valentine and my fist attempt at this fancy fold.

Perfect Peace - This card was made in collaboration with my hubby. He's the one that came up with the idea to make the flower peek thru to the front. I really like the papers and colors on this one.

With Sympathy - On this card, I really like the way the image panel turned out.  The coloring and inked sky actually came together the way I wanted them to on this one.  I also like the colors - restful (which is good for a sympathy card) without being too morbid. 

Prima Shabby Chic - I think the papers, diecuts, seam binding and flower came together well on this one. 

Quote Collection 4 from ODBD - This tri-shutter card showcases some gorgeous paper I found.  I loved it so much I did another project, a notebook, with it in the same post.  The notebook style was my best seller this fall/Christmas season.  The card and notebook use a fantastic set from ODBD.  I've used this set over and over again.

Happy Valentine's Day - This card had another cool fold.

I Found a Hug - I love this one because of the sentiment - I think the papers are pretty too.  Deedee's Digis has such cute images and sentiments.

Adoption is Another Word for Love - I really like this shaped card and the heat embossing on the heart.  Rhubarb (the teddy bear) is also a favorite with me. I also think the purpose of the card is fantastic!!

Great Outdoors - While I used a pre-colored image for this one, I did sponge the clouds in the sky.  I really like this adorable cat and the fishing theme is a hit at our house.  It's also my first attempt at a "wiper card."

But Without Faith - I colored this image with Copics and used some of the techniques I learned in the Online Card Class Copic for Card Makers Class I took this fall.  I'm still working on my coloring skills. I really like the colors and papers on this card. 

I've never done this type of post before but it was kind of fun.  I'm linking up with Mynn's Favorite Cards of 2014 linky and with Debby's Favourite Five of 2014.  My "Favourite Five" expanded to my top 10.  :)

Thanks for stopping by and hanging in there thru this long post.  I hope 2015 is full of many blessings for you and your family.
