Favourites of 2018

Welcome to my annual post of favourite cards for 2018.

I still love my Zig clean color real brush markers too, especially with white embossed background stamps

I quite enjoy colouring florals, using whatever combination of media seems like fun at the time:

Here are some random cards I particularly liked this year

And I always love making Christmas cards

Thank you for everyone who has supported my card-making hobby throughout the year, in a multitude of different ways. Extra thanks to Hero Arts and Lisa and Jess at A Blog Named Hero, Michele Gross and Alanna Moses at CAS-ual Fridays stamps, Karren and all of the ladies at Fusion challenge blog and Susan Opel at Simon Says Stamp. A special thank you to Jennifer McGuire for her kindness and encouragement (and all the inspiration!), and to all my lovely guests for my Challenge me a Christmas Card series. And thank you to everyone who has left a kind word or suggestion in the comments, and all my wonderful followers on Instagram and Facebook - I really appreciate your support!
