My favourite cards of 2015

Evening Folks!
I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the new year. I done a bit of catching up with blogland this afternoon and thought it would be fun to join in with Debby's 5 Favourite cards of 2014.

Now I didn't think it wouldn't be too hard to choose 5 cards for this year, mainly because my production rate was a little low ;-) However, narrowing it down was a bit more of a challenge than I first thought, lots of dithering with a cup of tea in hand to sustain me!! Indecisive, me?? Yes, definitely..... but anyhow here goes, click on the links for more details:

I had to include at least one LOTV image in my selection and I was really pleased with the colouring and the CAS look of this card. Plus of course it has the very cute James the bear taking centre stage!

This stamp was a bargain from ebay and it has very quickly become one of my favourite Gruffies images ever. This card felt more embellished than my usual style and at first I was worried that it was a bit too much but I think it works. Also dared to cut into some papers I had been hoarding!! 

I was very honoured to be a guest design team member over at House Mouse and Friends during July and August and this is one of the cards during my time with them. Although I have lots of decoupage sheets in my stash I rarely use them so this was a bit unusual. I also love the soft colours on this. I sent it to my Auntie and Uncle who celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary, I thought it was a romantic image with just a few small touches of gold.

Well I just had to include a Penny Black card in my selection, they are still stamps I come back to time and again and the hedgehogs are a particular favourite. I like the layout on this card and I also managed to use up a few flowers gathering dust in my stash.

And finally drum roll please.....
My all time favourite card of 2014 is:

This Little Claire image always makes me smile and this was one of those very rare cards which was a dream to make, all the papers matched, the colouring was OK and it came together pretty much as I had imagined it in my head. Not something that happens very often!!

I could have included at least another 5 cards in my selection but I'm going to leave it there, before I change my mind again. Thanks Debby for a great idea for some New Year fun!
