Good morning all. Well, I'm feeling much better right now, if you don't count light-headedness from the paint fumes! lol. Bathroom is coming along nicely... Though what was originally going to be a quick lick of paint on the walls has turned into walls, woodwork and a new floor! An afternoon's work is now about to start it's third day, but it's going to be soooo lovely when it's done. We've always been "muted" decorators, preferring soft or neutral colours, but this one is rather more eye-popping, and I LOVE it! Pacific ocean for the walls and Charcoal Grey for the woodwork (including the bath panel), offset by the white of the bathroom suite, tiles and radiator. The floor is also a charcoal kind of colour, and as soon as it's in, I'll take a picture! :-)
Now, on to today's post...
It's that time of year again! Debby has asked us to share our favourite Christmas cards of 2014.
I don't think I made many more than 5 this year (I got ill at the very worst time, so have had to disappoint a lot of people...), but I have dug out my favourites for you...
In 5th place
In 4th place
This one uses my absolute favourite Christmas papers of this year (from Dovecraft) and features my first attempt at completely colouring a background (with pens). I was sooooo happy with the result.
In 3rd place
I'm so pleased with how the colours came out with this one. The vintage feel is just my cup of tea, and I think this was my first real attempt at colouring with a lot of red!
In 2nd place
Well, I had to. It's purple! lol. And I kinda love the letter bead sentiment...
And finally in 1st place
I love the subtle muted colours of this one, and of course the adorable LOTV image and my favourite Christmas papers. In fact, I loved this card so much, I re-created it for a big Christmas card order I needed to fill (which is something I never do... I like to make different cards or I get bored, lol)
So there they are. My top 5 Christmas cards. I kinda love how they're all different colours (though maybe that's subconsciously part of why I chose them in the first place...) and I'm also quite pleased with the amount of different techniques I managed to try out too.
That's it from me right now. I've been trying to visit your blogs this morning, but if I haven't gotten round to you yet, please bear with me... I still have chaos in my bathroom to deal with!
Have a most excellent day!
