My Favourite Five Creations of 2013

I am joining in with Debby's top 5 creations for 2013 again this year. It always so much fun reminding ourselves of the years projects, and it is so good to look back at things we are proud of. Here are mine, although it has been a mammoth task to whittle it down to five! 
I have thoroughly enjoyed the creative side of 2013, and here are just a small selection of projects I have loved making and sharing.
First up is a seaside scene using a mixture of Inkylicious and Stampscapes stamps. My original post about it is here.

 Second is an altered box that I made for the Inkylicious Create and craft shows in May and June. I was tickled pink when the cup of chance got demoted and my box was used to put emails in instead!
My third card is this one, for which my wonderful daughter filmed and edited a 'how to' video on youtube which you can find here.
Fourth is my personal favourite from this year, and was the subject of my second you tube video. I just couldn't part with this one and I was delighted when I found a square frame to fit it in Tesco a couple of weeks ago!
This autumnal scene was a birthday card for my dear friend Lynne and is my fifth and final card. It started life on a smaller card here, but it didn't look right so I used a bigger card and came up with this instead! What a great year I have had and a big thank you to all those people who have helped me to achieve more than I would ever have dreamed of!
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year  and that 2014 brings plenty of opportunities to be creative and everything you could wish for. Big hugs to you all! Do pop over to Debby's blog and take a look at her wonderful top 5 too.
Thanks for looking!

I'm not surprised you couldn't part with your favourite - it looks super in the frame & I certainly appreciated your videos hugely. I've yet to acquire the ink dusters but they are on that wish list.

I really don't know how you managed to come up with just five from all the stunning work you've created this year, Sally! There hasn't been anything you've shown us which I haven't liked. Of your top 5, I think my favourite also is No. 4, and if it had been mine, I'd have kept it too!
