2013 Review

Thought it was time for a little review of 2013- funny year with highs and lows
Didn't get off to a good start when I lost my little soul mate Bud in January but then quite quickly I got a couple of promotions at work, highlight of the year had to be going to London to see the great Mr Buble and then off to Portpatrick in September with Misty and despite the wet weather we had a lovely time, my sister lost her dog in November and now my Dad has been told he needs a hip replacement.
Seems for every little high this year there was little low
Wonder what 2014 will bring......
Anyway wanted to share my favourite cards of the year starting with












Just a wee selection of some of favourites from 2013
Hope you have a wonderful New Year and here's hoping 2014 is a good year

Now That's Funky

Thought I would dig out an old favourite ,  Now That's Funky, for my make over at Get Funky and Craft but am now thinking maybe I should add some flourishes
Hope Santa was good to you and you have now recovered from all that eating and drinking, I got lots of nice things and some money which I spent in the Next sale
I will be back in the next day or two with my favvy 2013 makes to review the year

Delicious Doodles

Over at Delicious Doodles  the challenge for this week is White Christmas
I used the beautiful A Robins Christmas from Teri, coloured it using pro markers and added a snow acetate wrap round the card, it's such a pretty image and is ideal for Christmas makes.
Not long now til the big day- hope you are all organised- I'm having a wee day off today and hoping to get in my corners and get them cleaned and bed changed etc so the house is nice and shiny for Santa to visit and maybe even tidy up my craft room too. If I can get that all done between today and tomorrow I might have a little relaxing Sunday and watch some corny movies and chill out.
We had Secret Santa at work on Wednesday and I got a Michael Buble calendar , so thank you Secret Santa, I will drool over that for all of 2104...............and remember if you have tickets for his Glasgow show and don't want/need them then I get to buy them and that goes for Beyonce too- half an hour I span about in cyber space before they decided to tell me the show was sold out.... raging beyond belief...Ticketmaster obviously doesn't like me and doesn't want me to go to any gigs next year...note to self-start liking unpopular singers so you can actually get tickets to go see them !
Have a great weekend

Charisma Cardz

This week it's an Anything Goes challenge over at Charisma Cardz 
I found this paper in my stash and used the beautiful image from Teri at Delicious Doodles
Hope you can join in with us this week to be in with a chance to win some super goodies
Are you all organised for Christmas? I think I am now, but if I've forgot anything then it will just have to remain forgotten.
Have a great day

Delicious Doodles

Christmas/New Year is the theme for this weeks Delicious Doodles  challenge
I used this wonderful new image from Teri for my card and teamed it up with this lovely holly paper from Funky Hand
The weather here is horrendous- yesterday we had 80mile per hour winds and lashing rain then snow- the wind caught under my car on the way to work and ripped something off so it's away to the garage today to be made all better
Snow is forecast for today and it's not surprising as it's our works Christmas do and it always snows for that
Have a great weekend whatever you are up to
