Favorites from 2014

It is always nice to go back and look through what you have created in the past year and pick out some favorites.

This is the last card I made for my son in law before he lost his battle with cancer.  I gave him this card in the hospital a couple days before he passed away and he thanked me for all the cards I made them and how they always made him smile.

A mixed media card I made.  Loved all the colors in this card.  I remember that the embossing paste white dots made me finally like the card.

I used a piece of paper I had been playing with mixed media on.  Loved how the card turned out.  Such warm colors.

I just love this card - it has so many different elements on it.  Tamela still has it up in her office.  More Mixed Media.

Playing with distress inks I believe.  Loved the colors.

Trees are a favorite design element for me and love how with just little dashes of color it looked like falling leaves.

I just love this card.  All kinds of different things on it.  I don't think I even sent it to anyone.

I love this stamp = loved the colors I used.  This card made me happy.

A favorite color combination.  Some mixed media.

I had to include on Christmas card in the favorites for the year.

As you can see, I have been dabbling in mixed media and many of my favorite cards reflect this new addition to my cards.

All lovely cards and all different. I love the mixed media ones too. I think I'm going to try that for my "out-of-the-box" challenge. I love the owl one, so happy, and such cheerful colors. I am sorry for the loss of your SIL. <3

Gorgeous cards, I'm happy to say I got one of them and it still sits on my dresser where I can see it every day.

How very lovely! I really enjoy seeing where you are going with mixed media. It was a new adventure for me this past year. I haven't used paste yet, maybe next?! I love your black, red and white "Celebrate" card. And I love the falling leaves from the tree. I plan to keep an eye on your mixed media creations for help stepping out my own box this coming year... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
