My Favourite Five Cards of 2013....


Morning all...Just popping on to share my favourite five cards (oops 7) of 2013 which the lovely Debby is hosting again this year...this was a tough one to choose which five and ended up with seven.


I will try and find time later to link up my cards to the original posts, I'm so behind here and still have two DT cards to finish for this week.







Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
Thank you for all your support and friendship on my blog, it's very much appreciated :)  looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations in 2014....Have fun what ever you are up to tonight, it's going to be a quite one here but will be pleased to see this year finish and really hoping 2014 will be a better one.

My Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2013.....


Hiya..Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa was good to you. I didn't get much in the way of crafty things this year :( but do have some pennies to spend :) and now wondering whether to buy a Grand Calibur or the new Xcut express, I love my bug but would like a A4 size one too...what Die cutting machine do you use and what do you think I should I go for ?

Anyway the children are busy with new games/Lego so  I have a bit of time to join in again this year with Debby's fun challenge of My Favourite Five Christmas creations 


Not so difficult for me this year as not so many to choose from, as I failed miserably and only made a few.
Clicking on the link under the card will take you to the original post.
