My Crafty Year

Hello blogging friends,
I do hope you are enjoying this festive period and are not affected by the awful floods and power cuts. We have been very lucky here in Sussex, we lost a fence panel and our garden was a bit flooded, but that is all.
Lots of blogging peeps are sharing their twelve favourite makes of 2013, so I thought I would join in the fun and share mine.
Grab a cuppa and take a browse through my post.  I have tried to choose a diverse selection of makes, I do hope you like my choices, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Firstly, January 2013
A little card using the Little Claire image 'Best Friend', I love this image and its beautiful little sentiment.
February 2013
A little lantern using Little Claire's - 'Butterfly Blossom, an image I have used over and over, just love it!

March 2013
A tunnel card using Little Claire'Your So Tweet' set in lilac & white's, so right for Spring!

April 2013
Little Claire - 'Poppies' in peach tones for this card, along with lots of lace and a couple of pretty flowery buttons.
 May 2013
I altered a little bag using the Little Claire - 'Elephant Squares'. I have used a rosette & sentiment from another set and lots of white lace and lilac pearls.

June 2013
A little post-it note holder using Little Claire - 'Pincushion Birdy' image and some small sticky buttons.

July 2013
My love of kraft card started this month, using Little Claire - 'Bird Line', one of my all time favourite stamps.  I love the little metal butterfly & peg I have used on this card.
August 2013
A Prima Dolly Tag for Ali-Craft, whose DT I joined earlier in the year. The tag and paper are from Prima also.  My dolly featured in Creative Stamping (November) issue.
September 2013
My birthday month in which I used a gorgeous Little Claire image - 'Rainy Days ' .
I have paper pieced the image using these lovely papers and those wellie's are so cute!
October 2013
I joined Hobby Art Design Team this month, so here is a card made for Jenny's Create & Craft show featuring 'A Gaggle of Geese' and 'Decorative Background's' stamp sets - such gorgeous stamps to use!
November 2013
I have used lots of girly papers, baker's twine and a Little Claire - 'Tea Party' stamp set, which I helped design with Gill and ex-teamie Georgina.  I especially love the little cup with the bird on.
Last but not least, December 2013
A bright and colourful card using Hobby Art's - Sharon's Vases' stamp set. Love those little butterflies and the image are just gorgeous!
Looking back is very cathartic, I have really enjoyed re-living the year in makes, I do hope you have enjoyed seeing them again.
Have a lovely weekend, thanks so much for stopping by!
