Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa gave you everything you could wish for but my heart goes out to all those who were affected by the storms and floods that battered the UK over the festive period. I can only imagine what those poor people are going through.
Today, I'm sharing my favourite posts of 2013 and what better time to do this than right now, when I can also welcome all my new followers who joined me after seeing my work last weekend, hello and welcome aboard!!! ...and where did they see my work ~ well, some of you may know that I was truly honoured to have my tag shared by Tim and Mario over on the Tim Holtz Facebook page and I can't thank everyone enough for all the love and wonderful comments that you shared with me!! I was blown away and you really did give me a huge Cheshire Cat smile!!!!!
So, without further ado....here we go ~ my favourite pieces of 2013!
In January, I couldn't have asked for a better start to the year than when Tim Holtz gave me a Blogworthy link with this Valentine tag that I created for The Artistic Stamper.
February ~ and I created this record sleeve and vinyl artwork for a Clarity Stamp TV show that was airing in Germany.
MARCHhere, you can see the original post and all the work that was inside.
In April, I was inspired by Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 and I created this tag and was one of the very lucky winners.
May saw me create this little shadow box using some gorgeous Sizzix, Tim Holtz Alterations dies.
In June, I made this door hanger using the beautiful Tea Dance collection from Craftwork Cards.
...and it's another collection from Craftwork Cards that features in my July fave and for this piece, I used the stunning Time Flies.
I created this little mini gift card holder for The Artistic Stamper in August and once again, if you click here you can see all the detail on the original post.
This month saw me getting ready for Halloween and I created this spooky Halloween pocket, where the tag pulls out from the holder.
I created this little drawer box using the fabulous Steampunk Spells collection from Graphic 45.
November saw me in full Christmas mode and I loved making all my seasonal pieces but this has to be one of my favourites. I just loved making this slider tag and it turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head, which is something that very rarely happens in my little world. How something starts, isn't how it usually ends...lol!!
This is the tag that Tim and Mario shared on the Tim Holtz Facebook page and it will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you Tim ~ thank you Mario!!
So, I really hope you've enjoyed my little round up of my creations over the last 12 months and wonder if these are what you would pick too?!?
There is one more highlight of my year and that was in August, when I finally got to meet Tim and Mario and spend the most wonderful afternoon doing what I love best ~ getting inky!!!!
Thank you so much for dropping by today and thank you for all your support during 2013!! I couldn't have done it without you, without your comments and without all your visits!! You've been the best blogging buddies and followers I could have!!
2014 is going to see me embarking on some new exciting crafting adventures which I will be sharing with you very soon but for now....goodbye 2013!!!
See you all soon...love Emma xxx
