It's not a great picture, but the room is so tiny it's hard to get a good look at it in a picture, and this angle means you get to see the wall colour, trim and floor all together :-) It's still a work in progress, but we're nearly there!
Now then, on to the
Once again Debby is hosting this super fun event, and of course I needed to play along!
However, I hit a snag... After compiling my favourites, I noticed that not a single one of them was a card! I guess I enjoy non-card stuff more right now. But, I wanted to pick cards too, so decided to do two top 5s here... One for cards and one for other stuff.
Top 5 cards
In 5th place:
A very recent make... What can I say, I just adore everything Tim Holtz, and I'm finally getting my hands on some goodies to play with. This is the result. I'm pleased :-)
In 4th place:
I had a lot of fun with this one... It was the brainchild of several inspiring challenges, and I even managed to work an entire bingo board into it! This ended up as my daughter's birthday card.
In 3rd place:
It has very much been a year for new techniques for me, and after following Sir Tim's Creative Chemistry 101, I just had to have a go at the emboss resist technique. This was the result. I was soooo pleased!
In 2nd place:
Another of those rare creations that came out exactly as imagined. I don't normally like working in black and white, but it just all came together beautifully here.
In 1st place:
In first place the card I made for LOTV's 10th birthday. I really enjoyed making this, and loved how it came out. One of my happiest moments this year was visiting the shop and finding it on display!
Ok, could I just sneak in a special mention here? Because I made a card and liked it so much, I did it again in another colour. I think I prefer the blue, but I do love them both!
Now then, well done for sticking with me so far, but I'm not done yet! On to my:
Top 5 non-cards
Just my cup of tea... a steampunk box! Loved making this.
A mini album made with some of my favourite LOTV papers. LOVE the colour combo. Am in the process of re-doing this in pink, but need to stock up on pink blooms first!
I love, love, LOVE how this came out. another new technique for me, and it ended up exactly how I wanted it.
I have to admit, this canvas inspired by November's VI challenge would have been in first place, if not for the sentimental value of the first. I LOVE this!
The mini-album I made for my son's 1-to-1 teacher when he left primary school. It was easily the most sentimental item I have ever made and couldn't be anywhere other than first place! (If you haven't read the story before, the "1st place" line above is a link to the original blog post).
And there they are. Phew! Took some doing! lol.
Have a fantastic day!
