My Favourite Cards Of 2013


As this is my last post for 2013, i would like to wish all my lovely followers a very Happy And Safe New Year's Eve - and i hope you have fun, whatever you do - as i'm still struggling with a cough and cold, we will probably be watching Gary Barlow on the tv and cuddling Whisper at the same time, as she is scared of fireworks.

Gee picking 5 cards out of all the ones you make over a year, seems to get tougher and tougher every year, i could have easily have picked 10 !!, thanks to the lovely Debby for organising such a fun Challenge too.

'Loveable Mice'

I so love the old PB's and this one is from 1997 - 716E and i love making Valentines cards too, although i won't have to make as many this year, as i always send 10 Valentines cards to the troops in Afghanistan and it's fabby news that they are coming home.

Merci Bouquet

This was one of the hardest cards i had to make this year - it was made in memory of a lovely crafty friend Sandra, who sadly passed away and this card was sent to her daughter Jen.  I have to also thank my lovely friend Lou, who persuaded me to buy these gorgeous papers - especially as the rose paper say's 'Life Is Beautiful'


When the lovely Brenda contacted me, to ask if i would like to be on the  Design Team of  Penny Black And More, i jumped at the chance, as for me, it was a dream come true, i would just like to thank the amazing team for having me and it's been my highlight of the year.

Sailing Boat
I so love the boys LOTV stamps and i was so pleased with this one, that i gave it to Alan for Father's Day from Harrison - i've teamed it up with the equally fabby : Maja Design Papers - 'Life By The Sea'

Man's Best Friend

This gorgeous image reminds me of Harrison and Whisper and i've also teamed it up with some fabby LOTV papers too - i've kept this card for Alan's Birthday for next year !

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
