Five favourite cards of 2016.

Hello to everyone!  Its the time of year to look back at what happened during the previous year and pick some highlights.  Crafting wise there were many for me.  I spent some time with both the Tiddly Inks DT and Some Odd Girl DT, which was very exciting.   Also the Splitcoaststampers DT at the begining of the year.
My work was published in several magazines and I was lucky enough to be able to continue my association with both Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir.  
All in all loads of exciting events, but I won't bore you with all of the detail! 
Five of my favourite creations from 2016 are listed below, it changes every couple of minutes so will post quickly now!


My first DT card for Tiddly Ink, coloured with Spectrum Noirs - you will find the details here!


I loved colouring this Valentines card with the sweet ADFD bunny and my Spectrum Noirs.  You will find the details here!



Sheena Douglass images and detail are a delight to create with.  I was thrilled to discover at the weekend that this card was included in the Favorites - Best of 2016 for Splitcoaststampers.  Such an honour.  Details of this card are here.


If you are a regular visitor you will know how much I have enjoyed creating with the new Adult Coloring Colorista Range from Spectrum Noir.  Details for this card are here!


Lastly, but not least is a stunning Wee Stamps image coloured with the new Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.  These really are fabulous and allow you to add the smallest detail with the ultra fine nib.  The details for this card are here!


I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your regular visits, kind comments and support.  This is so appreciated!



Sending every good wish to you all for 2017.  

May your year be full of crafting fun!
