Top 5 cards of 2015

Hello lovely people,

I don't normally get round to picking my top 5 cards from the previous year to join in with Debby's challenge but this year I was determined to do it.
Wow, it's really hard!
I guess it's good that I still like the things I have made over the last year!

I'm afraid in the end it was a top 5 with a couple of 'special mentions' at the end - lol!

I have linked all the cards to the original posts if you want any of the details; just click on the photo to go to the post.

1) I had to start with something pink and girly didn't I?!

2) I had such fun with all the sewing themed bits and bobs to make this one

3) My fave vintage style design and some of my fave papers too

4) I love criss-cross designs and this one was a real favourite of mine with those super cute LOTV Happy Bears

5) I was so chuffed with this design and with the hair colouring that I decided to keep it!

And here are my special mentions...

Firstly my fave male design of the year...I don't make many, and am rarely as happy with them as the girly ones, but I just loved this one!

Secondly, my colouring marathon of the year...gosh, this took a while but it was so worth it when it turned out just how I wanted :-)

Finally, a very special exploding box card for my parents' ruby wedding anniversary


And the inside;

Out of interest I also looked to see what were my most viewed cards of 2015 and did a top 5 for those.

1) By far and away the most views (more than double that for any other creation!) and also one of my faves!

2) My first card for the LOTV Design Collective :-)

3) A triple circle Christmas card - popular despite the poor photo!

4) This one very nearly made it into my top 5 but then it would have been a top 6!

5) Another one that just missed out on being in my top 5!

I had a lot of fun looking back at my 2015 cards and I hope you enjoyed my selections.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Wow Kat, every single one of these cards is a little work of art! I love your shabby chic style and your signature stitching. I just love the look of your cards. Love the papers, the blooms, the images. You have a fabulous eye for detail and every single card here deserves the adoration it has had. Fabulous hun! Hugs, Wends x
