My Five Favorites from 2014

I shared my 5 favorite Christmas cards of 2014 a few days ago.

Now it's time to share my 5 favorite non-Christmas cards.

Join in the fun at Debby's blog

Join me on the 30th December

This is my favorite because the dove was cut from a piece of watercolor that my 3 yr. old grandson, Jack had painted. I loved the saturated colors and how the different colors defined the bird.

I did different variations of these chicks for a couple of classes.  
They were a BIG hit with the ladies. I doubt I'll be able to top them!

I love combining stamps and watercoloring.  
I've done several variations of these Stippled Blossoms and love them all.

I did this card for my friend LeAnne's birthday.  I knew she loved Baltimore Orioles.
I learned that I love the Blendabilities and Copic markers.

Another card using the alcohol markers. I tried blending different color families.
I used a lot of masking for this card and love the garden look.

{If you click on the dates, you can see the actual post.}

It's been a good year.
I'm thankful that I have been able to do so much crafting.
I'm thankful for all the crafty friends that I have been able to
share with and be inspired by, both in person and on the web.

Here's lookin' forward to another great, crafty year!

Happy New Year

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Bonnie. I LOVE your collection of favorites for this year. I don't know how you narrowed it down to five ... honestly, everything you make is amazing.

The card that you co-crafted with Jack is gorgeous and it's so special to be able to share your love of art with your grandson. I look forward to that in the future :)

Happy New Year to you and your family. Looking forward to a fun and crafty 2015 ... and looking forward to being on the ATCAS team with you. Love, Loll

Absolutely in love with the chicks in those bunny ears - so clever and such a fun Easter/Spring card!! Your cards all have a sense of classiness and style to them that I like - Good Job!!!
