Top 5 Favorites of 2014

First day of 2015!  Happy New Year everyone!
I'm starting off the year playing along with Debby's fun Favourite 5 of 2014.  It's pretty tough trying to narrow a years worth of cards down to five.  I tried to pick a variety so here we go.

This card Using Stamping Bella's "Bentley gets blown away" was so out of the box for me but I was so excited about how it turned out.  Splattering, inking, and die cuts.  Lots of fun to make!

I just fell in love with this Cupid stamp from Art Impressions.  This was my hubby's Valentine's Day card.  Lots of wonderful layers.

This year had it's ups and downs.  One of the downs was the loss of my Mo's Digital Pencil team mate, Amanda Reed.  I miss her dearly and this card was made in her memory.  Mo drew it in honor of her and we had a special hop to raise money for Amanda's favorite animal shelter.  That girl loved her cats, and we loved her.

This year has seen a huge increase in the CAS design card.  I saw this fun stencil/embossing paste tutorial on Jennifer McGuire's blog.  I pulled out this flower stamped from the now defunct There She Goes stamps and made my version.

I started off the year as a member of the first Design Team for Sugar Pea Designs stamps.  This set is called My Hero and I just had so much fun with the layout and adding all those banners plus he's fun to color too.

     So there's my variety of picks.  A huge thanks to Debby for letting us play along again this year with her fun.  You can link up your Top 5 Faves of 2014 on Debby's blog and play along too.
     Have a blessed New Year!
