2014…and the journey continues…

It is that time of year again when I do a wrap up of the year that was ~ and it sure has been one of the most challenging and inspiring years for me.
I started with my ‘skates on’ as a guest designer 
for ‘The Artistic Stamper’ in England…
which was absolutely mind-boggling as I couldn’t be further away from England if I tried, blogging is a wonderful thing!
Then I joined in the fun with the on-line design team
for ‘The Craft Stamper’ magazine…and learnt so much from an incredibly talented group of girls…

My amazing journey with Fashionable Stamping Challenges (love you girls to the moon and back) continues, and grows.  They were the first to ever take a chance on me…
and for that I am (and always will be) forever grateful.

I also made the decision to become a consultant for Kaszazz, a 100% Australian owned and operated card/scrapbooking company – and look forward to the adventure that that will be.

And I have finished the year off with being invited to be a designer for an Australian card making magazine 
(that one took me by surprise!), 
for an issue due out next year…heaps of pressure!!! 
but boy, it was soooo much fun!!!  And now I learn patience πŸ™

And I would do all of it again in a heart-beat.

When I make cards I pretty much just do my own thing.
I still don’t know what my ‘style’ is, but being inky and creative is still the best fun!
It is also around this time of year when I show pics of my top 5 favourite cards that I have designed this year…so here they are…

This one was made after doing Kate Crane’s ‘Journal Soup 2’
– and playing with ‘doodling’ some more.

This one is using Wendy Vecchi’s special background technique.

Bleach Blocking technique.

Just some carefree Summer fun!

And I just like the message on this one…

ummmm….I wonder what next year will bring???

A huge thank you to those of you who believe in me, inspire me, teach me, support me 
and share the love each time you stop by.
Feeling blessed πŸ™‚

From me and mine, to you and yours, 
I wish you all a very safe Christmas.And bring on 2015!!!
