Looking back ....... Part 2

Happy New Years Eve,

2014 is nearly over ....... the champagne is already chilling in the fridge!

Before the celebrations begin though, here's the second part of my favourite makes of 2014. Grab a cuppa and lets finish the year.

We start in July ..... and what a busy month that was!  We had the holiday in Vegas ..... what a trip! then I had a week in the UK with my crafty buddy, including a two day Clarity Retreat ..... again what a trip!
Still had time to play though .....

A pretty summery design for the Craft Stamper Challenge ...... Embossing Resist technique

And then my DT piece for the IndigoBlu challenge ...... Tag! You're It!

On to August ......... I was so excited to be a part of the IndigoBlu/ICE Resin Blog Hop

and of course, the new Christmas stamp designs had just been launched too ......

I love how this turned out ...... you may have seen it as my Guest Designer piece for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge ........ another happy dance around the old craft room!!

In to September we go ...... one of my favourite Craft Stamper Challenges ..... Stamping on Tissue

Great for covering MDF pieces ........ and perfect for decorating candles

And of course ..... my Christmas cards were coming along nicely

Love the CAS look to this.

October ...... we had the trip to London to see the Poppies at the Tower (just amazing!) and the old craft room was as busy as ever ...... with birthday cards .....

Design Team work ....... Craft Stamper again, inspired by the Clarity Retreat

and of course my Tag for Tim's 12 tags of 2014

Nearly there ...... November
It was definitely a month of festive fun Blog challenges .......

And there was Loll's fabulous 12 Tags Event which I played along with (you know I love my tags, so it would have been rude not too!) 

I did the twelve ...... and had my favourites

Oops ..... I almost forgot, there was the festive ATC swap too!

Well, we've made it to December .........
The final tag of 2014 .......

Lots of Christmas cards .......

And a special project I've been asked to do for the last 3 years ........

Design something to hold clues for a Christmas Quest.  I think I'm safe in showing these ...... the lady who they were for should have completed the quest by now!

This year I went for tags in their own little pockets ........ all the same, but different  - you know what I mean!

Well .... that's it!  2014 in cards.  If you're still with me ..... well done, and thank you, I hope you've enjoyed it!

All that's left for me to do is raise that glass of bubbly, and wish you all a very Happy New Year ...... and if you're going out for the evening stay warm, stay safe and have a great time.

See you in 2015!

Cheerio until then .........
